Horace and William Creek Model Railroad




The hotel, is from Banta. The office and the little brown shack in the background are from BTS. The retainer wall and fence are both scratchbuilt and all the rail is handlaid on wood ties. I then use pliobond with heat, to fasten the rail to the ties. The turnout is a Model Engineers. I haven't quite gathered up the courage to handbuild a turnout yet.

I have tried to achieve as much realism as possible. I have applied every technique I could glean from all the greats. Including those, from your website. I have come up with a couple of new ones, or perhaps just what I thought were new...

For me, the scenery is most important in this hobby. It gives the railroad something to run through. Just as it does in real life.

It must look as though nature has been removed to make way for the railroad and all the structures to support it. The structures and the railroad have to appear to be an intrusion. After all, isn't that the way it is? The scenery is primary, everything else is secondary. It is just the way my ole thinker thinks.
