Those Hornby Dublo buildings are in very good condition and look the part when laid out on the layout. Are you planning to detail and weather them?  It is something I have considered doing as I reckon they could be made to look very realistic with a bit of work, although Bachmann seems to be producing similar items in their new Scale Scene range.

Hi Brian:

Yes those buildings have survived well considering their age and how many hands may have handle them. I hope they do as well under my management.

Hi BobK:

    I have considered the potential for re-painting and super-detailing....and will most likely do that at some point.  It would appear the Bachmann is becoming more aware as has Hornby in the need for ready-made structures.  Hopefully they will take a look at what modelers are doing for their ques.

Greetings from Bristol (Wisconsin) & Wells Branch SDJR-USA:

 



From the cover of the June 1940 issue of Model Railroader, could this be a portrait of me!

Greetings from Bristol (Wisconsin) & Wells Branch SDJR-USA:

Picking up ideas from fellow Forum members has inspired me to try using print-outs for background buildings. Here is my first attempt at such an experiment.


View of the overall background building.


Backing up my industrial district. 

I have this project posted in the "Members Projects" section with a series of pictures.

http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=33308&forum_id-52

Will continue with this experiment and post results to that section.

Larry those backdrops you have created have blendid in very well indeed you overcome your problem of the backdrop there in a very economic manner by creating them yourself and they really look in place where you have them.

Larry, I think you are creating a great layout there, and I am all for freelancing layouts, but, and it is a big but, the buildings you are using (Walthers etc) are out of character for your locos.  In fact they would look better on my layout.:shock:

As far as I can recall S&DJR were quite major players before LMS took them over (happy to be corrected by real historians here ;-)) and if you look at the architecture of the UK at the time, we didn't have the big multistorey buildings they had in the US.

I understand your problems as I am modelling US from the UK, but I think you should reconsider your buildings as they are definately too American.

I love your photography of your layout, and I can just see my Consolodation in one of your wonderful black and white shots.  I am really struggling to see your locos fitting in with the great scenes you are creating.

I am sorry if this seems over critical and I know (only too well) how hard it is to get protypical stuff for your layout, perhaps you should look at the scalescenes stuff and I (and others no doubt) would be happy to forward stuff to you or order direcy from our own Chris (I'm sure he would sort out a discount;-))

Hi Lawrence:

     Since I am not modelling a specific UK scene (as Wells never progress to an industrial level as depicted by me, when it comes to the architecture), I have opted for a poetic license in my view.    

      My interests lie more in the operation of locomotives and the movement rolling stock of the S&D and its antecedents to a  somewhat factious schedule.

     Many years ago I was a slave to prototype modelling, focused on the Pennsylvania railroad in the 1920's era.  Although I scratch built stock to plans and created authentic scenes, when completed I would loss and seek a new project.   

     This layout has already given me countless hours of fun running trains and experimenting with ideas.  

     I look at the layout and modelling as an escape from the rigid boundaries of daily life's reality.  A place to be able to bend the rules with no consequence to anyone.  

     I think that if the Dali Lama was to take up the hobby this might be his approach.

now I would pay to see that :lol:.

Like I said at the start, I think you are building a great layout Larry and I love your photography too, I just think you need to go for more lo-rise red brick stuff to make it more "believable"

Put it this way, you have buildings on there that I would love, they would look great on my layout,  but they don't quite fit with your rolling stock (Stick an F7A & B in there and you have a winner) and that is my honest opinion.

I have been well schooled by the elders on here about being honest (unlike other forums where they just back slap or slag off if you are not in their clique!), as you said, you have had a load of fun running trains and that is what it is all about after all.  You have also managed to produce one of the most wonderful art deco stations I have seen, quite a beautiful piece.

Hopefully a comment I got on A.N Other forum will help you to understand why my comments are more simple observations than extreme criticisms.  He wrote " I am not familiar with the topography of the East Coast (of the USA), but assume the rock formations are correct for the area."  I'm not a member of that forum any more:roll:

As someone on here once said, "it's my railway, and I'll run what I want" ;-)

A great philosophy I'm sure you'll agree but please get more lo-rise red brick in there :thumbs

Hi Lawrence:

     I'll be ordering a shipment of that red brick for those smaller structures you spoke of. 

      The B&O had some wonderful looking "ten-wheelers" and light Pacifics.  Back in the 1950's Al-Nation Hobby in Chicago produced an excellent model of the President's personal loco.  Many of those are around here in the US and are prized collector's pieces.

Happy New Year from Bristol (Wisconsin):

Looking forward to a day of modelling...hopefully.

I am posting a picture from my "Workbench" where experimentation with photo backgrounds are underway.



This is the latest.  These are a lot of fun to make and a great solution to back ground needs. 

Check out my workbench at:
