New Video

Well, after I uploaded this big a** video in YoutTube I noticed that the damn sound is not working! It's frustrating how these teething technical issues waste your valuable time and money!

Anyway, here is the video anyway, with an alternative soundtrack of Clay Jenkins, called Rails - directly pulled from YouTube. :)

More detailing around the lighthouse

Yesterday added more bush, shrub and undergrowth around the lighthouse and the tunnel. Also added the froth and foam on the water - primarily along the shoreline. I added the railings on the trestle as well.

These additions make the scene around the lighthouse complete. Next in focus is completing the grain facility, oil facility and coal discharge facility.

By the way, I received my last order recently. Though it mostly contained detailing and scratchbuilding stuff, there is one that does stand out!

This is Kato container handler. The model does depict a little older time, so works well with my theme. Decent model for it's price.

Oh! I had some visitors yesterday, and got some unexpected help! Mouli's sisters lent us a couple of pairs of good hands to put the base coat on the tiny N scale crates and boxes! Thanks Aritrika and Sucharita! :)

Sunday Night Railroading Fun!

Long time railroading friend Rohit and Divya came down to Wrightsville Port for evening full of railroading fun! We spent a great time talking about model railroads, admiring his new acquisitions from Hong Kong - these were some great train and vehicle models that he found there during a recent trip. I also got a set of 6 N scale bus as a generous gift - thank you Rohit!

Here are a few photos of Rohit running the trains and the buses I got. You can follow his great collection in his page: ( and where I hope he will showcase his Hong Kong loot very soon!

Thanks for the coming, Rohit and Divya, next stop, our visit to Tiny Town, and hopefully set up your HO/OO Layout! :)
