This is part 2 in this series. It’s time to put some new color on it
I decided to start the new year with something totally different. I’m going to repaint an old locomotive in new colors for my railroad. This is part 1 of 2, let’s start with getting this one stripped down and ready for paint.
I thought that I would give you all a look at the yard with the fuel depot and lighting installed and working with a day view and a night view. I’ll be back in January!
Yes! Now it’s time to build the fuel/service area for the train yard. This is also the first video I do using 2 cameras. It’s a little rough in places but I think it’s now worked out.
Let’s get a roadway built to cross over the tracks to enter the yard and while we’re at it lets add some static grass to finish the edge of the layout.
Let’s finish up the maintenance area scenery starting with finishing the ballast bins and adding some greenery.
Let’s start getting the yard put together. I’m going to start by building the maintenance area with a building and lighting.
Here are some pics of the completed station installed. I also added a guard wall along the roadway on both sides of the station. Don’t forget to follow me on YouTube as well at Mikes trains
That’s right the lights are finally on! I installed the station and put the power to it. I’ve waited a long time for this! Take a look!
Lets look at how the station lights will get wired to power under the layout.
