Finishing the LaSalette Station

and scenicing the module.

With the Copetown train show approaching I had to stop work on the Bronx Terminal to finish off the LaSalette station and scenic the Free-Mo module I am building as part of the CASO group.

I finished off the station late last week and completed most of the scenery on the module, below are a few shots of the completed station and the module.

all the images are clickable to bigify.




The order board was taken from the prototype image above, the perspective fixed and scaled to HO scale. I printed it out and glued it to some thin ply. MCRR (Michigan Central Railroad) can almost be made out.




I have been waiting for some printed tar paper roofing for several weeks now, and decided to give up on it. I made some roofing using some simple white paper stained gray with leather dye, cut into strips and darkened the edges with a black marker. It was glued in place with white glue.




The module really comes to life when some trains roll! The rolling stock here is a mix of Pierre Oliver’s and Rich Chrysler’s work, all excellent stuff!

  2. Now I got it, Tim.

    But I can’t find a pic of the entire setup. Is there one?

    By the way, I tried walking through your progress by clicking the “Frist time here?” button, but I click on the “Part five” link, which is supposed to take me to: http://www.bronx-terminal.com/?p=119, I get a blank page. Thus I am unable to see the progression after that point.

    Just thought I would let you know.

  3. This is a truly impressive module, especially considering the time frames you were working with. The station is a masterpiece.

  4. Tim, have been looking at the Free-mo standards and joinging a group here in Oklahoma.

    Any chance in the future of a curve guide for the 42″ standard and 48″ RP curve to aid in laying out track plans on small modules so we don’t have to plot center points out in the air.
