  Nice HOn3 Article
Posted by: jefelectric - 12-17-2008, 07:18 PM - Forum: Narrow Gauge, Logging and Mining - Replies (3)

The January issue of RMC has an article on LInn Moedinger's HOn3 layout. For those who don't recognize the name, Linn is the president of the Strasburg RR. I'm not in HOn3, but I read eveything train related that I can get my hands on. Some other good stuff in this issue.

  My First Time Posting Foe-Toes
Posted by: Santa Fe Du - 12-17-2008, 06:08 PM - Forum: HO Modeling - Replies (1)

Hello all, this is the first time I have ever tried to post "Foe-Toes, to borrow a phrase from Doc. Wayne", so if it doesn't work, I'll keep trying till I figure it out, 35 and I know there is a lot of work to be done on my HO layout, ie. blasting and much more, but this is where I am at at the present, and only aprox. 15% is this far along, so I will keep updating as I get more near completion. Well here goes nuttin Goldth Well sorry guys, I spent an hour trying, but by the time I reduced them to the required 79KB Max size, they were too small to make out any detail at all, I must be doing something wrong, or misunderstood something, but I reduced them to around 75KB, and when I previewed, they were around 2" X 2", and very blurry.

Santa Fe Do, "keep On Tootin"

  leasing company name picked
Posted by: stuart_canada - 12-17-2008, 05:32 PM - Forum: HO Modeling - Replies (1)

leasing company name for my layout has been picked.
I decided on Canadian Locomotive Leasers
Roadname markings will be CLLX
the name i liked best was already in use and this way i keep the too serious modellers from being confused and telling me i am doing something wrong

all the non CN fleet with get a coat of Black Primer and get the roadmarkings painted over the next little while

first unit to be painted will be the new MP 15 . black with white lettering
will post pics when i get the letter from the local supplier

  I am Back....well kind this is new!
Posted by: TN_Trainman - 12-17-2008, 03:34 PM - Forum: Lower Berth - Replies (7)

( Well I posted this on the Old Gauge today only to find out I was like a kid who came home and everyone had moved away with out telling me, geeze no lights,no water, no food in the cabinets, glad there was a bread trail Icon_lol )

Well after selling my home, and now settled in our new place, it is time for me to make a return. The Tennessee and Western is no more I had to rip it all up, but I did save enough to make a new start at the new home.

I have less room but at least this one will be inside (not in the garden shed) and being smaller maybe I can get it up and running sooner.

I am still going to do a 1930,s to early 1950,s theme, just have not decided on the topography yet.

I missed yall!!

  Photo Enhancing
Posted by: Charlie B - 12-17-2008, 10:06 AM - Forum: Shutterbug area - Replies (2)

Ed, I have always been impressed with your photo "enhancing' and I was wondering if I, We, Us, could beg, plead with you to do some tutorials that us PS dummies could understand.
I have photo shop elements 2.0 as well as 5.0 and I have figured out how to do color correction and minor things, but as far as using layers the instructions I find are lacking for me. I know nothing about locking unlocking or any of that.

In this Nov. 2, 2008 file photo, Pakistani Sunni Muslims devotees return back to their homes on a packed train after attending annual religious congregation in Multan, Pakistan.

I would hate to be hanging onto the front while the train is moving. Better hold on tight! Eek
