A visit to the Utah Belt

Just added a great gallery of photos of Eric Brooman’s fantastic Utah Belt railroad.  As I was proofing the gallery I noticed just how great Eric’s use of color is across the entire layout.  Just look at the thumbnails and you can see that every scene has a cohesive color scheme. Everything blends well. There are some really – just beautiful scenes on the UB.  Check it out!

Bringing Grimm’s Back

Fall is here and that means Halloween is rapidly approaching.  And Halloween plus model building equals my Grimm’s Mansion Diorama.  I had posted a lot of information on building Grimm’s Mansion on the old version of this site, but over 10 years has gone by since then and there have been many changes with Grimm’s since then.  So, I’ve started reworking all of the old Grimm’s photographs and info and have decided to roll things out in order.  I’ll star […]

Big Lou’s galleries added

The good news is that it’s not 1999 anymore and most people have higher resolution monitors and decent bandwidth to download bigger pictures.  So along with the site being responsive and able to be […]

My Work

A new beginning for an O L D site came to be way back in the early days of the interwebs, before Y2K (remember!?), before MySpace, Facebook, and Youtube.  The old site went through a couple overhauls as I learned to code, but has remained fairly stagnant for the last 10 years.  At the time there just wasn’t a great way to share model railroad related pictures and meet like minded travelers.  Sure that were Yahoo! Groups (RIP), but I needed more! So long story short, I built […]
