Prompted by my #1 fan, Richard Todd, here are some of the last pics from my NWP 1958 layout.  Here some SD-9's drag a freight across the Van Duzen river.

Hi Mark.

Longvale Station was a Southerne Pacific Type 22 Depot. I choes Longvale

for two reasons. I am building a small shelf layout, and also this kit is available from American Model builders.

Kit No.134

Hey everyone, I am attempting to model the NWP in Train Simulator, I am starting north of WIllits, and it continues to Eureka, I'm still learning how to work the train sim builder magic, I will be posting photos of the route as time goes on.

Nice work, John!  Is this a kit or are you scratch-building?

Hi Chad,

True Color paint is an excellent paint. Lark Gray and Scarlet Red should work. Sea Foam green if you're modeling the interior. They're airbrush ready.  No need to thin, but the do also provide a thinner.

Thanks, Nick! What should I thin it with?
Comment by Nick Lorusso on February 29, 2016 at 3:41pm

Dark gray will work and thin it just a little.
