    Great Trains E-7 engine

    Looks great Jerry. I hope to get to that point someday, but, first things first, like the track. Bob.

    Realistic ballast to use for gauge one?

    Good idea, Bob.

    Thanks for the info. I, from the beginning, planned for drainage because of the solid concrete. I might even drill some holes at the top of the arches to ensure that water can get out. The drier the better, Bob.

    I see what you mean. The ends of the arches will provide the drainage for water. I will experiment. Bob.

  7. Hey Jerry, as usual, we will have to build our own from scratch, if we want one. Bob.

    Sounds like that you are as busy as I am. I want to finish this layout so that I can get back to building and modifying cars, as that is what I really like. Tell me all about your dual rail bender and how happy you are with it. I have one too, but have never used one. Show me one of your Chessie cars painted, because I am going to do the same thing for my E-7, Bob.

    I try not to. Thanks Jerry, now I have two more rooms to do before I start laying track, but it keeps me busy. What projects are you doing? Bob.

    I have been building cabinets to house the track layout in the house. Here you see 18 feet of cabinets and have 2 more rooms to go. I will not only be building the lower shelf for the trains, 3 tracks, 45 ft. long, but will build shelves above them for storage. Bob.

    Sounds good and will do it. How do you apply the glue? Dab it with a brush? Bob.
