    business interior sheets

    Illyad2, thank you for the question. I am also interested in learning more about this. Detailing the interiors of buildings sure adds realism to a scene, in my opinion.

    Car Card Sorting Areas?

    Dave, I have not seen that method used. Seems like a simple and inexpensive way to accomplish what I am trying to do. Thank you! Scott

    Car Card Sorting Areas?

    What do you use for a sorting area for car cards? I have seen permanent shelves attached to layout fascias. I also seem to recall an article by David Popp (although I can't find it now) for building a small "fold-a-ble" shelf that can stored away flat against the fascia when not in use. As...

    Show Your Work Area

    Rico, I can find myself looking at the BN map a lot! It is so cool to see the entire country with the associated rail lines. Of course some of those lines have been abandoned. I like your work area and the multiple small drawer cabinets. What do you store in the tall set of drawers to the...

    Going through a total loss of interest!

    Great point! For me it is a combination of a couple of things, laziness, yes, but also an overwhelming sense of things to do when I finally get time to head down to the train room. As a solution, I have stated to make lists of small projects that I can complete in a few "sessions" in the train...
