frankenstein: I'm currently a chair dweller right now. Aug 5, 2019 10:05:24 GMT -5
rbturner: Sitting still is the pits. Unless it's at your train room work bench. Aug 5, 2019 13:06:57 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: rbturner, to answer your question from two weeks ago, my livery plan is actually to paint it up as another of my "Strawberry Specials" Aug 5, 2019 14:33:12 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: What is a "Strawberry Special", Z? Aug 5, 2019 20:31:39 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: Here's a hint: You've seen two or three of them from me already Aug 6, 2019 0:23:46 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: I could use some feedback on the cobblestones of my level crossing. It's one of those things where lack of input is gonna stall me x.x Aug 6, 2019 0:40:24 GMT -5 *
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
