RBF will find soon the double tracks
New Odds an Ends

I made a pumping station with PVC pipe1/2 and used 3M drywall sceen for fence as well as finishing nails for posts. The base I used an old TYCO building base turned it over and after gluing the pipe nails and old plastic model parts I had saved , I filled it with dry Quikcerete morter mix and then wet it. Then after painting the sreen gray I cut to fit for the fence.

Thanks guys! I just wonted to show that you don't have to pay allot to make stuff for your layout. Just using common thing's and a little creativity there is allot you can do when you only have a little money.

I agree (haven't heard that in a while!)

Excellent work Robert!
What else do you got I always like saving money.
Great idea.

I will file them in my memory bank for future reference.

I might try the fence with bigger stuff for my O gauge.
Thanks

I had a old set of white mini lights and I used them to light up my buildings. I cut the lights off and wired them to a feed line which I wired to a 3v. tranformer that was for a telephone. I got the transformer for 25 cents at a yard sale. Now I only have eight lights on it and if I add more I most likely will have to go with a bigger transformer.

ODDs an ENDs help keep the cost down.

There are things that you may fined that can be repurposed in to something that can be used on your layout? I have been looking at some garden edging that I saw at a big box store that was brown and flat 1/4 inch by 6 inch by 10 feet and is about 20 dollars. I was thinking to use it for roads in witch I would have to cut it down to 4 inches wide, or maybe keep it at 6 inches for a airport runway. But sometimes you can fined things that are plastic that were part of a discarded product or packaging, and with a little creativeness can be made into something you can use. I used 1/2 inch PVC pipe witch I got at Home Depot a four foot length and cut it down for concrete pipe freight, and it cost about $1.50.
