ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD

TWO STALL ENGINE HOUSE


IC 100 ft. STONE ENGINE HOUSE. A three-quarter view line drawing of a two-stall enginehouse featuring large working windowed engine doors and an ornate facade. The building is constructed with rough limestone dressed with smooth cut stone pilasters. There are lots of windows.

100 ft. STONE ENGINE HOUSE


Wow! Here's one of my primier kits. This beautiful two stall 100 ft. stone engine house began its life as a freight depot. It was built in La Salle for the Illinois Central RR in 1857. In 1919 it was converted into an engine house as we have modeled here.

The walls were cut from my rough Hand-Carved Stone - Medium stock panels with smooth grain pilasters inserted into them.

The windows and doors are original white metal castings from my own pattern shop and foundry. The molded styrene windowed engine doors come to us from Central Valley Model Works.

The corrugated metal seemed roof is cast in Hydrocal, so it is done in minutes, not hours! And of course the kit comes with complete step-by-step instructions.

The engine house model was the subject of my how to take a good photograph article in a recent issue of Mainline Modeler.

100' x 40' ( 13 3/4" x 5 1/2" ) in HO Scale.


See the La Salle modeling article in
Oct. 2002 Model Railroading magazine.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION - for this model


ON-LINE HOW TO CLINICS

  HOW TO CLINICS  
Here are a bunch of my on-line how to work with Hydrocal mini-clinics. Each kit includes specific instructions of course- and there are lots of ways to do things, but here are my thoughts, tips and techniques.

  Coloring BRICK  
My traditional techniques for coloring and mortaring brick.

  Coloring STONE  
With a little practice you can color realistic stone walls. Here's how I do it.
What are we going to do now that Testors/Floquil has dropped their Flo-Stains?

  Coloring CORRUGATED METAL  
Really its very simple. Click above and find out how I do it.


SCRATCH-BUILDING STOCK

  Hand-Carved Stone- fine  
This is same stone stock I used on the church. I just cut them up, carved a few openings for the doors and windows...

  Corrugated Metal  
The roof stock, my Cedar Shake Roof - fine, CSR-f, is available seperately. This is great stuff to have. Use for buildings, roofs, and what have you.


MATCHING KITS

  The Stone Shingle Mill  
is a nice little model. It has the same (but not exact) type of stonework that you can practice on.

  The GN Depot  
How about a passenger depot to go with your new engine house? Here's the pertect thing.
