Re: Cloverhouse AC&Y dry transfers

Ralph, Thanks for the reply to my query about the early AC&Y boxcars. I'm wondering if an Accurail fishbelly under frame could be shortened and used with a Roundhouse body. I'm sure the Westerfield model would be much more accurate, but it is a question of how much effort I want to put forth. I ...

Re: Cloverhouse AC&Y dry transfers

The Cloverhouse website states that the prototype car was 36 feet and from 1915. I'm thinking an old Roundhouse 36 foot boxcar might be a reasonable starting point.

Cloverhouse AC&Y dry transfers

Cloverhouse makes an AC&Y dry transfer set for a wooden boxcar. Would anyone know what type or class of car this lettering set would be most appropriate for and exactly when that lettering style was used. I would like to do some of the cars. I assume the lettering goes back to the 1920's or earl...

Re: Meeting of AC&Y/A&BB Module Builders?

Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend the meeting on Friday, March 1st, due to a prior out of state commitment. I applaud your interest in coming together to discuss the project. I would be interested in hearing what is discussed.

Re: Sunday Photo Shoot 7/29/12

Bob: Thanks for the much appreciated compliments and the very insightful information on the AC&Y track laying practices. I never would have imagined that the AC&Y did not use tie plates in most instances that late. The trackage in the model photos is on a diorama that I built for a scratch b...

Sunday Photo Shoot 7/29/12

Greetings fellow AC&Y modellers: After an off week last week, we're going to try this photo shoot and modelling showcase once again. Here is my version of the Arlington depot and some photos of some track work that I have done. I guess the next step is individual tie plates. How many of you are ...

Bob:

Thanks for the compliments. I think a lot of people are hesitant to weather their steam engines, but I will try to demystify the process and give people a formula for a predictable outcome. I look forward to sharing these techniques.

Re: Medina in HO - Work in Progress

Bob, Your urban modeling looks great. The scences look recognizable and believable and will provide a great setting for AC&Y trains. I look forward to seeing your layout in person again. Keep us posted on your progress.

Weekend Photo Shoot Sat. 7/14/12

Fellas: I was gone for a couple of weekends but I wanted to try to resurrect the weekend photo shoot and get some participation. I realize it is summer but modelling knows no off season. Here is a fantasy Mogul that is the coming together of an irresistable new Bachmann model with sound and some rem...
