Heljan roundhouse kits,gp38-2 locomotives for sale,train sets for sale - How to DIY

We are creating a new model guide; one about models that are suitable for a Swedish diorama that are not the trains themselves. There is a fair number of manufacturers of H0-scale model buildings, and the models are mostly suitable for central Europe. The presentation here is slightly different from rail and road models, as buildings usually have only one prototype. Hennan has become quite a famous station; the building has been moved to the National Railway Museum at Gavle and rebuilt there! MobaArt produces a wooden model of the station building as a kit, believed to be their first Swedish model.
The Hennan prototype photos are from the Swedish Railway Museum website, the model is from the MobaArt website. Klippan is also in southern Sweden, but in Skane, on the line between Astorp and Hassleholm. Mariefred is quite close to Stockholm and is at the end of a short narrow-gauge railway from Laggesta. Heljan produces a model of the station building, but not all of the recent modifications are imitated on the model (but the model is not inauthentic for a certain period). Heljan produces a model of the station building as it was a few years ago; but quite frankly, the modifications have not enhanced the appearance of the building, so the model is perfectly acceptable as it is. Right - And here is Amal station building, with an InterRegio train reflecting in the windows! Aseda was an interchange station along the VHVJ where it met the standard gauge line from Nassjo via Vetlanda. Euromod produced a wooden model of the station building many years ago, but it does turn up at swapmeets from time to time, even in the UK! There are a few station buildings available that we believe are not especially Swedish, but with a little modification here and there, could fit a Swedish scene.
Heljan produces a small station (art # 130 - Martofte, on the Danish island of Funen, on the Odense-Kerteminde-Martofte Jernbane) and a large station (art # 157 - Holme Olstrup, Sj?land, Denmark) which would be OK; and there is a very modern station (art # 120), which is typical of modern structures anywhere, not especially Sweden.
Faller produces a kit called "Waldbrunn," which can become a credible representative of the stations on the line to Simrishamn in Skane. Top Left - This is a model of Martofte station building in Denmark; it suits the FLMJ's Manstorp station very well. Top Right - Holme Olstrup is also in Denmark, but passes well for a Swedish station building. Bottom - Waldbrunn is in Germany, but the Faller model shews that it is so similar to Simrishamn in southern Sweden.
In Sweden (as much as the rest of Scandinavia), loco sheds are mostly circular buildings around a turntable.
Faller produces a 3-track roundhouse, which appears to have a smaller profile than others available. Vollmer produces a 6-track roundhouse and a 3-track roundhouse, but we are not aware how many tracks the add-on kit has!
Middle & Bottom - Manufacturer's photos of the Heljan roundhouse; one shews main unit and add-on together; the other picture shews the add-on standing alone!
Kibri produces a model of Marbach signal cabin (art # 9477) which would not need much effort to modify to look Swedish. Vollmer produces a model of Nurnburg signal cabin (art # 5732) which would not need much effort to modify to look Swedish. Bottom - Not all signalling was controlled from enclosed cabins; here is the 'frame' at Rattvik as it was in 1990! Right- Not necessarily the prototype for Heljan's goods shed, but clearly shewing how authentic the model is!


Former linesman's huts (small houses known as Banvaktstuga) are dotted about the country here and there.
These Artitec low-relief buildings are perfectly suitable for Sweden, and these will be going in at Manstorp.
11402 - The only model in Auhagen's range that could be used in a Swedish diorama without modification is this kit; an apartment block, typical in the larger towns and cities. 213 or 1773 - A small modern house, suitable for the outskirts of a large town, or as a large summer-house. Middle Left - More likely to be a summer house, but strangely, some modern country stations are built this way, today!
Jeco produces a Ceramic model of a Lanthus - effectively three small homes in one building. 208 - This is a kit of three small allotment buildings, and although not specifically Swedish, would not be out of place.
1080-1084 - Nice summer houses are in this number range from Busch - same building just different colours! Right - This white (concrete) house is Swedish in design, but might be more traditional if made to look like wood! Right - Assorted modern industrial units are available from American manufacturers, this from Rix! 136 - The most authentic church is probably the Heljan model of Seglora Kyrka, now rebuilt at the open air museum at Skansen, Stockholm.
202 - Another church of unknown origin, but quite suitable for a southern Swedish country scene (it's actually Danish). 1702 - A very ordinary supermarket, no known original, but suitable for a Swedish scene, though a bit under-scale. Nice to see a 'basket case' arise from the ole 'box-o-parts'.That Lepage polyfilla seems to work very well, Glen.

Put a turntable and roundhouse on a layout and stock it with steamers and you've got a sure-fire recipe for drawing a crowd. For someone with no real yard, only staging, and with a rail-fan style of terrain and tracks, there really is no point in having those things. I just changes scales to HO, so I don't have a bunch of locomotives I need to do something with, so I decided to keep the railroads operation small and stay dieselized. The above is my opinion, from an active and experienced Model Railroader in N scale and HO since 1961. On my layout, the steam locos still burn coal and generate ton-kilometers and freight train hours - and some passenger train hours as well.


Anyway, starting with that old roundhouse, or at least the bones of it, and adding several more through barters, ebay and otherwise bottom feeding, I began framing up my 20 stall version of the Hagerstown Roundhouse.
There were also some pieces missing such as all the doors and a few of the roof windows but not the skylights (thank goodness)I then started to re-color the walls and windows. This kit is missing almost all the small vertical pieces on the roof but I'm fabricating some replacements out of Styrene.Today I worked a bit on the foundation. The structure will be away from the egde of my layout and interior viewing will be almost impossible. I don't really know what happened but I had to cut and fit a number of the original roof panels to fit. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
The model is in pristine condition and is missing no parts, ready to place on your layout ! I think its fair to say that the combination of turntable and roundhouse is arguably the most recognized "railroady" item on any railroad-- trailing behind perhaps only the water tower for "universal public recognition". I sprayed all the walls with red-oxide primer and then gave them a black-gray wash to darken and weather them.The windows and doors are all painted in floquil Depot olive. The one I picked up only had a roof skylight window missing, and thanks to Brad (chooch41) he is sending me the missing part.
Maybe it was just the quality of the kit from back then.I used the original kit's skylights but I was missing most of the short vertical 'step' walls on the roof so i decided to make my own out of styrene sheetThe original is on the bottom. I wanted to get some of my steam under roof so I put them in and then decided that I would leave the roof off so I could see them.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
On a steam layout it is difficult, though not impossible, to imagine how you could get along without one-- a turntable at least.
The side was opened to allow folks to see the inspection pits in action as-well-as the interior. I use this color on all my railroad owned buildings to give then a 'family' lookI then took Lepage polyfilla (it's basically wall patching spackle) and rubed it into the walls to create motar between the bricks. The foundation is seperate for each stall but when I examined them I noticed that the rear or each one was warped. I used them for the template to make the others.After trying to fit the roof panels on properly I found gaps between them so I used some scale 2X12 and made some seam strips to cover the gaps.
As the railroads modernized and diesels came to rule the roost, the need for turntables diminished considerably and indeed many railroads did away with them entirely, or else converted them to other uses.
I'm figuring that iots part of the molding process that is doing it since each was warped the same. I airbrushed the smokejacks in grimey black and then lightly sprayed rust down on them so the caps would have a slightly rusty look.While I had the grimey black in the airbrush I touched up some of my pilasters and shot it randomly on the walls.
Today, though the turntable and roundhouse remain a deeply embedded nostalgic element, more and more layout designers are doing away with them and utilizing the space instead for something else.
I later stained it with a grey wash to weather the motar.I replaced the original doors with Grandt line enginehouse doors.
