I didn't realize that; mind you a lot of times it underlines the Canadian/English versions of certain words. In which case I just ignore it.

You know the guys in the rotary enjoyed burying those people n fine fresh powder. Stupid railfans. I am sure the folks at St Maries think I am crazy for spending all day taking pictures of them.

Because the little research I have done on it many used things like vacuum fans which are curved. But I can certainly see what your saying. This is deep in the bucket, very deep. With a great many other pipe dreams stacked on top.
Todd's is only meant to throw snow one direction. Without a rotating nozzle I cant see why you would reverse the motor. But a fan like you mention added to a top mounted rotating nozzle would be interesting to attempt.

I have no experience in lighting number boards so this is a suggestion with no idea if it would work. Get some white (not clear) decal paper and then use a black back ground and white letters (white letters don't print, the ink is just omitted). If your not familiar with this process you use a text box in MS Word make the fill color black and the font color white. I think the white paper would be thin enough to show light through. Adhere that to clear plastic such as the stupid impossible to open plastic everything comes in these days. Another suggestion would be to use clear decal paper and black background, print white letters and then adhere that to something like a plastic milk carton plastic ( the portion that isn't bumpy) or some other thin semi transparent white plastic. Testors makes both white and clear decal paper in small quantities.
OK that's all I have. less

Building under the conditions of the challenge are different from just building, and as such changes the atmosphere even for experienced modelers. As one with a relatively small 'junk box', this added to the challenge. Overall I had a great time participating in the challenge and testing my abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the build threads of the other challenge participants. The imagination and creativity of the members of this forum are boundless as displayed by the entries. I participated and I voted. I voted with an open mind and an objective eye.
Were the categories too numerous? Possibly.... Could they have possibly been more clearly defined in both voting and prizes? Maybe..... I think the categories, prizes and judging were plenty fair, especially considering this was a 'fun challenge' to chase away the 'after the holiday blues'. I don't have any clear answers to do ... less

I love it and want to make some of my own, if I can get it to look right in 1:20.3.

I was wondering about the people standing "on" your layout until the picture that shows the well camouflaged walkway. But far and away my favorite part is the bridge work. You have a reputation for fine modeling and now I see why.
And when I get started on my layout which will be somewhat rock intensive please flash a picture up once in awhile of your layout when I begin to whine about moving and placing rock. less
