    Running Bear's January 2021 Coffee Shop

    Running Bear's January 2021 Coffee Shop

    Hello everyone, it has been a while, which means lots of catching up to do. My finger is still slowing me down, although it is healing now. I would post a picture of it, but I don't want anyone to spill their coffee. Wille- Hope you had a happy birthday! I also have that Plasticville tower...

    Your gondola is coming along very nicely. I can't wait to see it completed. Also, You have probably said somewhere, but what CA do you use? I think you need to stop watching Saving Private Ryan, it is starting to have an effect on your vocabulary😛.

    Make your own crushed ballast

    Details West PL-160 pilot/plow attachment

    I usually use regular old Testors glue. I think one of the two would be the best option for gluing metal to plastic.

    HO scale Camera?

    KBO2-I decided not to get one of the key fob cameras because it was an awkward size and shape. Terry- I have three iPhone 4s I have acquired, but they were too wide to fit on some parts of my layout. When I get one, I will say which one I got and how much I like it.

    Make your own crushed ballast

    Off hand, what size I'm I looking for?....... Jerry-do you have any woodland scenics ballast? If you do find a strainer that lets those pieces through. You could use a window screen. If you have something with a screen, you could upload a picture, and I can see if it would work. That is some...
