Today, I sanded down the flash on my Miniatures By Eric Pacific Electric 1100-1149 interurban and 1445-1449 Box Motor. I noticed that I am missing the steps below the freight doors of the freight motor, and it looks like I can use Micro Trains baggage car steps.
I have sanded down the flash and I have been working on the castings for the 1100, and plan to start gluing everything into place. I have ordered a pair of Tomix chassis to power these.
Vardi’s is getting closer to opening, just need to get some signage, and get a delivery from Gallifrey Supplies down by the station. I am now looking for a Brew 102 sign to put on the side…
Playa Desnuda is that beach city that happens to be on the wrong side of the tracks. It really needs a dive bar, and I an going to help out the town.
I am thinking about naming it Vardi’s, in honor of Chandler’s Phillip Marlowe. In Marlowe’s debut novel, The Big Sleep, he drank (a lot) at Vardi’s. Unless someone can give me a better name..besides, The Big Sleep is one of my favorite movies.
