    Track Close Along a Wall Behind a Viewblock

    I am not sure if I understand exactly what a view block is. but I had to check clearances on the back wall of Port and also the spacing of an inside and an outside track there. Long passenger coaches can cause issues on the inside clearances and especially with a larger engine on the inside...

    I don't know John, I think having HO and OO in the same space might produce some very confusing offspring....? But welcome, lets see how it goes....!

    Any ideas on how to add class lights to an engine?

    Informative thread, it's funny but I think the new tiny LED's have created so many fantastic lighting features now that many of us skip the fiber optics and the younger guys will forget to even consider using this tried and true tool from the past. I have used fiber optics to bring light...

    The Great Divide Lines A tribute to John Allen and the Gorre & Daphetid

    Have not had the plaster out and gotten dirty in years.. That was a totally fun two days work... Wow will I need more plaster when I get to the floor to ceiling scenery areas. BY the time I hit scalp mountain the honeymoon will be over and it will be a marathon. An enjoyable marathon but a...

    Yes sir, I have so so much to still do.... keeping up with John is like trying to catch the Tasmanian Devil...! Just nice to get a little scenery done, I have been buried in the rivet counting on his bridges and buildings for a while now.

    The Great Divide Lines A tribute to John Allen and the Gorre & Daphetid

    The color in the earlier photo's was a first spray in the previous photo's. These photo's are pretty close to the colors. And the focus is much better. I find that slightly darker rock color is good as the hydrocal or plaster does continue to suck in the pigment and over time this will...

    The Great Divide Lines A tribute to John Allen and the Gorre & Daphetid

    And some rock scenery is finally in. It's a start anyway. The current limit of my Gorre & Daphetid engine roster is parked here. Will add the shay, the dockside, and the #60 gas car and then paint and letter all of these up for John's road. There's also some tender changes I have to do as...

    The Great Divide Lines A tribute to John Allen and the Gorre & Daphetid

    Chet, yes indeed, John had all kinds of Varney equipment and various manufacturers items he would stage advertising photo shoots for. Not sure about Tyco but it's possible. But John had no diesels himself and he did not allow them on his layout from all reports. And yes indeed wood ties...

    The Great Divide Lines A tribute to John Allen and the Gorre & Daphetid

    This Purina building is one of the very few kits John used.... and I am trying to stay as accurate as I can... he used the "Weekly Herald" building and/or Superior Bakery walls as well in various places. I have modified some of these walls, like he did, and made a mold now to recreate some of...
