Rockin’ Out with the Train Layout

Train Layout - Rock Quary - 8-28-16In the quarry Jay was finding pieces of rock that would be just perfect for his train layout.

While recuperating from surgery he spent time making rocks, plastering them on the layout and then making more rocks. It was quite the process.

We had a little issue, at first, with colors not quite looking right. He did some more mixing, some more testing, and this is the end result.

Please excuse the pictures as I took them with my old 3G iPhone.

Jay thinks that they look like No Bake Cookies with some Cocoa Pebbles thrown in for good measure. Mmmm… chocolate…

From here it looks good!





Train Layout - 3D Printed Signal Lights Perspective - 8-30-16Remember the tiny little 3D printed signal housings I showed you?

He’s been working on these, too.

Although, it was kind of strange to find one laying on the stand that sits on the front porch. Either an ant carried it up there or it grew legs and walked.

When my camera battery is charged I’ll get some better pictures, I promise!

This guy is really tiny.

But he sure is cute!
