Joe Fugate's Videos
BJ, Chris, Myself and the rest of the Monday night crew have been watching, at supper time, Joe Fugate's Siskiyou Lines Videos "Model Railroad videos 1-5" which we have found quite interesting. The unique mushroom design is very innovative. I have found Volume 4 in particular the construction of trestles informative. I am thinking of using a similar method on a number of bridges on the approach to Daveyston on the Huntington Branch.
See a few screen shots below:
A great set of Videos. The "Model Railroad OPs Session Live no.1, 2, 3 & 4" ones and "HOT Trains Volume 1 - Alco Mania!" await!
BJ has been busy adding scenery details and structures, see below:
The scratch built milk depot.
A small cattle yard and loading ramp will be added between the fascia and the tracks.
