I made the costume jewelry for SR&RL #6.  The tank lettering is vinyl on black painted magnetic sheets.  The cab number is a thin piece of black painted plywood with Vinyl numbers.  I turned the "9" over on the insides of the headlight.

The number plate is brass plate sawn out and screwed to the blank reproduction plate.  Where did that plate com from? I have heard some one made several a while back but what did he or she use for a pattern?

Hey, congratulations are due to our freinds at the Boothbay Railway....they have fired up the SD Warren engine and tested her out!   The little saddle tanker will be a joy to see finished in a very short time now!

we held up color chips to see what we were looking at. of the chips we had the "Kilz" color LM 100 (b3) "Incence Stick" looks really close -- think UPS truck Brown. which is "Pullman Brown" according to Google.

I also spent some time sifting through Jackson and Sharp images and found some good shots of similar cars.  This one shows the striping really well.

I got some more samples from the glass manufacturer and we are getting VERY close to the original color.  The "Florentine" texture is also very close. The only noticeable difference seems to be that the new stuff has a button in the center of each rosette while the original does not.  The rosettes are nearly the same size and character.  I am getting two more color samples and should be really close.  I'll get some prices and replace the plastic panels in coach 3 to see how it looks.

I did some research and found some glass for the clerestory. scroll down to "Florentine 01"  this stuff comes in different colors.  if it is not an exact replacement only a skilled eye can tell without them being side by side.  If we send them an original piece of glass they can match the color.

I would expect to be able to do either day, but bringing the model railway would be harder for both.

I have finished up some 4x4 quarter round posts for the door.  Randy donated some rough sawn wood, turned out to be butternut!

Glenn....of course wiscasset and Quebec coach 3 was owned by the B&S RR for several years after the ww&f failed to fully pay for the loco purchased from them (WW&F #5) and was then saved at Edaville.

rotating the Riveter took some effort but wasn't terrible when rotating it to the next rivet...Plans are afoot to help that
