Model Railroading

Pennsy 44-tonner with caboose

My DCC-equiped Pennsy 44-tonner (HO scale) with caboose running on a make-shift layout. Yes, I know that the whole idea of a 44-tonner is to eliminate the need for a second person onboard the locomotive, but it has to move something.

My current spare time is being spent on developing a 3D model of a pickle plant, to be incorporated into my N-scale model railroad layout. It is little more than a framework at this point. But, I need to develop some industry to justify why there is a railroad on this 24"x42" piece of real estate in the first place.

I will be developing this model in true scale. Once it is completed, I will be able to 3D print it for any desired scale. It will initially be printed in resin for my N-scale layout, then I will print an HO-scale version. You can expect to find these also offered for sale on my Etsy page and my eBay page.

Follow me as I develop this into a 3D model, from the initial 2D plan.
