It is always sad to read when a railroad makes a final run. In this case, the last run of C&NW 1400 at Benton, WI. It is the final run of Robert’s standard gauge railroad. He is moving on with his modeling interest.
Robert was kind enough to share a few pictures of his final efforts.
This picture shows the north end of the depot and the runaround track.
Here is a shot of the yard taken a little further back from the depot. Robert’s trees are interesting. Maybe I can get a few words from Mr. Leners on his tree technique.
I was wandering around in the Lowes store in Gilbert, AZ. I spotted the magic potion for doing the Lee Turner’s weathering technique. Mean Green is a biodegradable cleaner much like Simple Green but stronger. I cleaned the garage door in our new house with it. Next, I will use it on my next weathering project when I get back to Cali.
