Another week starts . . . post 'em if you got 'em.
After the success of weathering my first large scale boxcar back this winter, I decided to tackle another long forgotten project. Years ago, another large scale modeler Brian Brigg's passed away. He was a excellent modeler, scratch and kitbashing large scale projects.In the following post, I will explain some background and get into the model.
Here are some links to some of his projects.
After seeing the 1 pound powered graphite in Joe's Musings I was doing a search as this is used in fertilizer, grain drills (seed planting machines) in farming and pellet stoves to reduce wear on parts. I found it at NAPA Auto Parts listed as 16 oz for $7.99 each. It can not be ordered online but it states to call or visit your local dealer and to see if it is in stock if not they will order it for you. This is the same name as Amason uses
Had a few spare minutes today so made a rail joiner tool for my S scale track Just a piece of code 100 rail bent to a comfortable angle and a piece of brass soldered on the bottom. The handle is carved wood with the rail driven into a drilled hole. A joiner is slipped on til it hits the brass stop then can be pushed onto the end of the rail being joined. Saves wear and tear on one's finger tips :>)......DaveB
In the following blog, I will tell the story of how the development of a 3D printed model of a P&R gondola hopper came about. I will also share a few 3D printing mistakes and how I corrected them along the way.
Welcome to the Cincinnati West thread! Thanks for stopping by. The photos are hosted here on MRH, so this thread will remain intact as long as MRH exists. - Randy
I thought it might be nice to add a sort of index to this post since it has grown rather large. - Randy

I've been posting here for a few years now and have decided that instead of starting separate little blogs for every little idea I have I should consolidate things a bit. So...
From now on, New and exciting things on the Ruphe and Tumbelle will be featured here.
(Insert trumpet fanfare)
This is awful - vandalism in the UK.
Let's hope it never happens again.
This will be a build thread for my upcoming Ozark Sub layout. The particulars:
* To be contained within a purpose built 16' x 20' (15' x 19' interior) HVAC equipped out building.
* Will utilize three of the four walls w/small peninsula.
* Will be a "partial" dual level: Lower and upper 7-track stage areas, reverse loops for turning trains both levels, and a lower and upper town on the dual level portion, with the ruling grade mountain climb on the single level portion.
* Approximately 150' total main length.
