Small name change of my blog , because I've moved house and had to pull up my layout. As it was,137 Awaba at this stage has not been added . ATM the layout, I will focus on 142(Fassifern) and 146(Toronto) , shape will be dog bone with 146 at one end and Newstan branch the other end. Here are some more pictures how 146 is going . Flickr has been a huge help finding a pictures, I skimmed over one at first because it was in colour. It was taken from the water looking at the station it has a 620 at the station still has the Parachute water tank and the overhead walkway insitu."Toronto Railway Station and Hotel from the water before Riva Apartments and before Victory Theatre burnt down" .Google earth also helped in research also. Im still looking for a close up of the goods shed at the end of the yard and the old Hirecraft building . I found a picture of a T&R FO planted in the building. Here are some more pictures of how its going. Just placing buildings I've have to get a feel. Anyone know what year the Tank and the Walkway were removed?? just as a matter of interest.

Tinted Windows experiment for HUB cars

I went up to the shops with one of my daughters to buy her School books for the year and helping her choose what she needed i saw green see through soft plastic covers. I bought 3 different shades of green and I already think the lightest green will do the job as once both sides are done it will seem darker.Here is what I bought as well as tamiya translucent green .I will post pics soon experiment

Eureka HUB Car PFH2217

Hi All Happy New year !!
Here is a series of pictures of Eureka models HUB car PFH2217. I dont know anything about the car so I wont compare it to the real thing . Well worth the wait I might have to add 2 more cars to make up the Flyer later on . Place it on the track and the interior light comes on as well as rear red markers. Windows are clear . Now need to buy some passengers and fill the seats.
