sky blue yellow


Never used any kind of blog before, so please help me out :-)

I do not like rules, but can live with guidelines, such as....

Module paint color. I do NOT like 'southwest desert sand' for our lush green northeast. I happen to use a dark green, but can change to any reasonable color.
Ballast color
Tie color - I use 'roof brown' and paint the rails a rust color


any interest in PRSL? I'm a confirmed Reading fan (20+ yr member RCT&HS)
any interest in marine railroading? waterfront module?
how do I post pics of my modules, legs, leg pockets, etc?

  1. You can add pictures when you make your post. Look at the buttons above your message as you compose. There might also be a tutorial somewhere here on Blogspot.

    I'd say make the sides whatever you want color-wise. The standards S6.2 only mention to use something that does not detract from the modeling. In pictures I've seen of set-ups, if it is a public show, a skirting can be used and that covers the sides anyway.

    Tie and rail color sounds correct based on the Free-Mo standards S6.5. Ballast is also in the standards, S6.4, Woodland Scenics light gray for the main. Otherwise, I think you are free to vary based on track usage.

    PR-SL, marine, it is all good for module topics. I think the that is where Free-Mo excels, being able to have differing subjects work together to set up an operating layout.
