So far in the O scale Forum I worked on Post items now as the box is nearing completion I have a chance to show you some Prewar trains.

Here I start off with a roof to a 1630 passenger car.

More cleaning


It does drag on for eight minutes but after many instances of describing it , now you can actually see it at work.

Not bad without a script :thumbsup:

The audio is better than expected you can hear my allergy at work.:(

T, I have had really good results from naval Jelly.
I like it because it brushes on, and hoses off. There are the rough ones that use the wire brush, but I just put the brass brush in the Drill and super-clean it.

Have you ever tried it?
If so, what would be the comparison to that compound, which does look good.

There was a broken tab that holds the relay so I glued it first the added some epoxy!!






On these older tenders I find the roller springs are normally shot.



Just add a new spring



The old and new



It is not difficult to do, Just lift the spring one turn at a time over the rivet. The opposite installing the new one, Just don't bend the spring.

It's his artistic signature. Wouldn't be a T-Man project without a little epoxy swoosh somewhere in the mix! ;)

Nice cleanup on the passenger cars, T ... clean, but "aged character" still there.

I am stuck on the compounds. On this job I paid attention to the roofs. I have used it for aluminum. Also it took only 15 minutes for one piece. Why wait for the jelly to work?
