rbturner: Many years ago I built a Budweiser Clydesdale, 8 horse hit w/ wagon. It sat on a cobblestone base. I painted each cobblestone individually with various earth tone colors. It looked great but was a real job. Aug 6, 2019 8:01:21 GMT -5
frankenstein: Why get stalled? Things like that have a great variation to them, and are largely interpretive. Aug 6, 2019 11:14:28 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: Because I needed to be sure the cobblestones weren't completely off the wall before proceeding to the weathering stage of painting the base. I know there's a lot of variation, but I was worried I had still managed to goof it up Aug 6, 2019 13:12:21 GMT -5
methuener: My B&O Pratt Street layout will be all street running and all cobblestones. I'm going with paper sheets with cobblestones printed from photo images. Aug 8, 2019 19:49:10 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: Nice! Aug 9, 2019 19:12:16 GMT -5
eilif: Is there a topic where we share our collection of rolling stock from other member's freelanced railroads? I've got a BC&E on the way that will join equipment from JNXT, NMN, and JFI, it'd be nice to have a specific place to share this stuff. Aug 12, 2019 8:29:48 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I don't think there is one, or a specific place for that - but just create one under "Gone to Beans Coffee Shop" I'd say. Sounds like it could be fun! Aug 12, 2019 8:42:50 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I've also acquired a small handful of mystery freelance roads from train shows, done with such care that I can't think of stripping them. Aug 12, 2019 14:38:46 GMT -5
John: JNXT, Don't want the cars but would like to see the pictures. Please! Aug 15, 2019 14:37:39 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: I understand today’s is the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock. If you still like to heart words like groovy, outtasight and far out. You can relive that concert here: thekey.xpn.org/2019/08/14/xpnstock-schedule/ Aug 15, 2019 16:59:38 GMT -5
John: I guess I will never understand the romantic nostalgia that is felt about Woodstock. I grew up in that era. Woodstock seemed more like a Drunken Roman Orgy than a music festival. I guess I was a Red Neck then too. Aug 15, 2019 20:45:33 GMT -5 *
rbturner: John; AMEN. Aug 16, 2019 12:06:03 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I second that. I do like some of the music but the event itself was a disaster. It has improved over the years though, like a fine hippie wine :D Aug 16, 2019 13:48:33 GMT -5 *
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Just heard Canned Heat for the first time. Sounds like pretty good blues work. The Dead are on in a few hours! Aug 16, 2019 19:58:56 GMT -5
pokemonprime: "seemed more like a Drunken Roman Orgy" yep I think that's why some people went. Aug 18, 2019 23:14:32 GMT -5
mph: WARNING: Another flamingo escaped! Be alert, it could show up anywhere. Aug 19, 2019 17:53:52 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Are there no fences strong enough or tall enough to contain these birds of destruction? Aug 19, 2019 20:18:07 GMT -5 *
mph: Nothing that I can find. I may have to try something drastic and build a mote filled with Fogite - that will stop anything, right? Aug 19, 2019 21:15:32 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: That strategy would be the end of the line for most living things... Aug 19, 2019 22:48:25 GMT -5
