What's on Your Bench: 6/2019

Keith Hayes
Because I was posting to an older post to show progress, we got distracted. I made some progress on the Penrose today.

The thought also occurred to me to use bamboo skewers as leveling piles for the locker room and compressor house.

Bamboo skewers: a thousand and one uses!

New drawgear mounting block for the Timbercar#1, needs some work.


A very close call here, a shifted load caused the car to rear upwards when being hauled up the incline.

Trying to get this one running just for giggles and grins.

Some might remember this from long ago in the SGN.

Fergujb,

Be sure to post some pictures of your Alpine Tunnel boarding house.
Some day I need to build one also. Or at least the front of it.
HOn3 is the path I have chosen.

For your inner masochist:  HO-scale picket fencing.

  Double your self-punishment by doing it right, ....

Proper Victorian pickets (fents) were not done with simple angle-cut
tops:



  C'mon, Jeff, ...  we expect better detail out of you !

He he, yeah, I'm slow and late.

As for SouthPark, I'm not building any ole picket fence; I'm building a particular picket fence.  Fortunately for me, it has simple 45ยบ ends.

Down here in NZ, Pickets were in produced in three versions, the most ornate being bought by the wealthy for their (usually) in Town Villas.  My Parent's farmhouse was a Villa built in 1896, had the second level whilst the retirement Cottage of some Aunts, in a town had the basic picket top ^ .  Then there was the square or flat-topped available, very common.

I guess you'd have to know the status of the Owners to differentiate just what Jeff is modelling.

Some of my favourites....

There are numerous examples to be found at the DPL. Georgetown having a wide sampling of Victorian styles.

Re: Picket Fences

  Reading the information on file for the Dome Rock photo, I learned that
this was the Southern Pacific Railroad !  Fascinating, as I never knew the
"SP" stood for "Southern Pacific".  Always good to learn something new.
Anyone know when the Southern Pacific operated this line ?  Photo is dated
1920-1960.  Must be closer to 1960.  That looks like JFK's dog "Sprocket".

  On a serious note, that is one helluva lot of picket fence for the C&S. Why ???  
The telegraph line has yet to see the 1919 rebuild.  Were the Dome Rock picnic
grounds still a big draw at that time, and the picket fence there to "pretty up" the
facilities ?
