Making some of our own scenery material out of regular dirt and sawdust. THe sawdust will be used to make bark for our bur oak trees.
The dirt was dried over the course of a few days then sifted into fine particles. It was then baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes just to make sure anything living was killed off.
Maked the location of matching streets and sidewalks from the overpass.
Testing out a track painter pen.
Put two coats of black paint on the poles of 34 hanging lights for the roundhouse.
We are looking for any info, pictures, videos, or maps of this local train ride and train depot that used to run down the street from our workshop in a park called Haworth in Bellevue Nebraska. We know where the train and depot were before ending up at Haworth but very little about their move to and from the park and their time there. We are making a free youtube documentary about them both and trying to fill in the missing pieces.

Took out the old PSI lenses and dismantled them. Ready for some new lenses!
With the old and new data port next to one another you can see how warped the old one has gotten. What should we do with the old one other than toss it out? It has a lot of years and history around it.
Cut some smaller tube styrene and threaded them over the wires of the ceiling lights to act as poles. Then I glued the shades and poles together making sure they are as straight as possible. After they dry I will paint the rods black to match the size and color of the main power wire they will attach to.
Got about 10% of them together glued so far.

Patches started to receive some long needed TLC today.
A new data port is cast and ready for some last minute cleanup before painting it later this week. The old port is removed and any left over adhesive cleaned off.
