Milwuakee Road 40' Log Bunks

Here's a pic of the six, so far...

Milwaukee Road in Z!

Hi all! I am attempting to model the Milwaukee Road in Western Wa during the early 70's. Lot's of Milwaukee to come!! My one problem was the Milwaukee road used old boxcars, cut down to flats, welded on uprights, and used them for log trains-no one makes those! So I did, using Micro-Trains flats and Stone Bridge Designs "Log Bunks". Looks good for me! I've made six so far, just need a trip to the paint shop!

Turf Club

I am a bit timid about certain things, making changes to my layout among them.  I note that my previous blog entry said I painted the layout was in July and now in November I can finally say I have taken the next step.  

This past weekend, at GTE (Puyallup, WA), I brought my mountain layout, a bottle of Woodland Scenics turf powder, a bottle of white glue, and a spray bottle.  On Saturday, just as I was starting an inconsequential corner of the layout, Jacob, the son of the folks running a neighboring layout came over, asking what I was doing, and could he help (I felt like Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence).  Once I showed him what I wanted to do, he was at it like a wild man.  In under 45 minutes, my "chocolate" mountain was replete with turf.  Jacob approached the task with a concentrated abandon.  The result was that we had to spend about half the time it took to add turf to clean up powder from the table, the floor, and spots on the layout that didn't get the prepatory glue.  The latter was actually an advantage, as it left some bare spots where the raw earth poked through the turf - just like the real thing.

Jacob going to town:

By the following day, the glue was dry enough that my Sounder commuter train was making a special Sunday run:

(Next task: asking Becky Thatcher to the dance!)
