It’s been a while since I’ve talked about the Susquehannock Industrial Park project, mainly because I haven’t made much progress. I have done some work on the Bickles Foods factory since I got the walls assembled. The roof is finally coming together.
You may recall that I “wanted the rooflines a little less chaotic” than Art Curren’s original kitbashed structure, which combined original kit roof panels with a variety of scrapbox parts for a very interesting roof. I don’t want my roof to be particularly interesting, which means that it’s going to take more effort. Go figure.
So, the roof panels are cut to shape and (mostly) fitted together, but there’s still much to do. I had to do some splicing work, because the structure is longer than the styrene sheet I used, but the joints went together evenly, and should look great once everything is complete and painted. Watch this space for further updates!
Going to the Syracuse Train Fair this weekend? Be sure to stop by the T-Trak layout and say “hi.” Members of three N scale clubs will once again be operating one of the largest T-Trak modular layouts you’ll find anywhere. I might even run my Broadway Limited!
In addition to preparing for the RIT show, I’ve been frantically soldering another throttle together for an exhibition I’m setting up on Monday, documenting Chuck’s new throttle, and doing some emergency track repair on George’s railroad. I’ll have more details on all of these things soon, so bear with me.
Heading to the Batavia, New York train show tomorrow? My clubmates and I will have our brand-new 30th Anniversary N scale box cars (shown here with the optional user-installed roofwalk), just in from Micro-Trains. As usual, we’ll have a T-Trak layout running, too.
See you there!
Ahh, train show season is upon us! I’ll be at the Syracuse Train Fair this weekend, helping out with the T-Trak layout. Hope to see you there!
