" ACME Dynamite was not big enough to leave a hole like that "


Hi Ken  :wave:


That's good to know ...  :boogie:

... probably only woke up the neighbours in a 10 mile radius then !  :P 


Would have had to have used a TON of foam for the 'FCrater' ...

... better used as 'FRocks' I think !  :cool:


I remember 'ACME Dynamite' now ...  L:

... cos I saved the photo you Posted of the wreckage a while back ...





... I guess the roof is currently orbiting Space Junk !  :shades:


I quite fancy an EXPLOSIVES ! car for the  :moose: Rly.
Collected the oDd picture or two, but haven't got any great ideas yet.  :dope:


I was going to ask how ACME shipped the product, from their new location ...  ???

... but I guess the answer to that, is simply ... CAREFULLY !  :w:



:mex:



Si.

Do have a folio plan for "Gunpowder" cars used on the FCA(C)&B Rly.  L:

It would be an easy conversion of a Bachmann Refrigerator car,

loose the ice hatch's, and add a railing across the top of the car,  :)  then a repaint.  L:


The new ACME plant will be hidden from view,

with just a smoke stack sticking up above the scenery, with a spur heading into it,

imagination will fill in the rest.  :bg:


I plan a similar concept for a former sawmill,

with just a string of loaded log cars,

spotted before the sawmill burned down.  :bg:

Plaster drying.
 
Had taken a break from scenery,
to convert a Bachmann reefer to a gunpowder car.

Based on the cars for the A(C)&B Rly in Chile,
new roof of sheet metal for a different look.

Started weathering car,
still some touch spot's to blend in.

Have 3 more reefer's which are excess to my need's,
may do up a second gunpowder car and a 8 hatch top loading boxcar.

At least I only have to swap roof's for that conversion,
and add the 4 hatch's from the first conversion.

Last of the basic scenery finished.

Time for a start on touch up, highlight's and detail on this section.  :bg:

Time to take a break and get some wiring done  :2t:  for testing.

Rock cut finally roughed in.

Hi Ken  :wave:


Be careful ! ... The 'Kaslo & Slocan Rly.' was known for DISASTER at every turn !!  ;)


I am, slowly but surely, becoming a DEDICATED 'K.& S.Rly.' fan by the way.  :bg:


They certainly had their fair share of :

Burnt down buildings

Train  wrecks

Forest fires

Rock slides

Floods


I like the story on Wikipedia ...  :thumb:

... about the vengeful MOB ! of 'K.& S.' employees ...  :w:

... who raided their 'Canadian Pacific' rivals, brand new Depot ... & BURNT IT DOWN !  :shocked:


Wouldn't want the competition poaching any ore-trade or passengers !  :P


The 'FRocks'(TM) on your rock cut are lookin'  C :cool: :cool: L  ...

... probably slide down onto the track later & cause a FATAL DERAILMENT !  ;)



:java: :moose: :dt:



Si.

Working on a Ian Lindsay kit for the NT Insulated Van,

been on the shelf for to many years.  :bg:

Could be a while before I can get correct coupler's though.



Si

The last 8 miles of the K&S was level, which included 20 bridges,

a lot which were side hill structures along the sides of the Mountain's,

that were prone to rock & snow slide's, much less forest fire's.  :)


I've covered on foot most of this section,

comfortable stroll along the roadbed and former bridge site's.

Took a break from the Norquinco bridge,
and started work on El Dialbo Canyon.

The rock formation's were from Mountain's In Minutes,
I purchased from my LHS.

They are removable for scenery work on track and the river.

I had a canyon similar to yours on my layout. 

When the layout was moved to a different location, I lost the canyon.





It was a natural magnet for leaves.
