Nice Station. Really makes it yours.

Thanks Eilif

Its nice to see the results of what the minds eye see while developing the project.

For Sunhuntin

FYI...Plakids, luggage, signs and flag pole are all held in place using Rubber Cement so I can easily swap them out or move them around to change the look if I so choose. It also helps to prevent damage if say the tree, flag pole or plakids get knocked off. Bech seat and barrels are permanently attached with super glue.

I know you die hard Thomas fans might not appreciate this but I have finished with the removal and modification of all things Thomas (I think) in the layout. Last couple layout buildings are shown here with their new looks. These join in the ranks of other re-purposed buildings which are...

Lower Tidmouth Station...now...Amtrak Station
Wellsworth Station...now...Union Pacific Station
Knapford Station...now...All Knapford signage removed
Smaller Maithwaite Station (sign on left)...now...Amtrak Station


Ffarquhar Station...now...Shipping Dock

Great work super, you do some great mods, I bet they look right at home on your lay out!


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Super - 06-06-2014

Thanks all. I do like doing them and coming up with new ideas. A lot of my inspiration and ideas come from viewing what others have done and what might look good.

My Grandsons favorite train is the Skyliner Bullet Train and ever since I completed my first lighting Mod he has wanted me to put working headlights on his Skyliner. For the longest time I put it off because it didn't look to be an easy job with that sloping front end. I wanted to take a stab at 2 vertical rectangular lights just like the real Skyliner but there just wasn't the room inside the shell I needed. So I settled with 2 Grain of Rice 1.5volt bulbs that work with the motor switch. He hasn't seen it yet so I hope he likes it.
