About this blog

This blog is about my current model railroad layout project; The N scale "Summit" layout, which is a freelanced interpretation of the Southern Pacific Tehachapi tunnels and their surroundings. Or at least, that is what it is meant to be. What it will turn out to be is another matter. The banner photo above shows what I want to recreate in N scale.

Electrical boxes

I did some detailing today, installing a few trackside electrical boxes. I used a kit from BLMA containing two etched metal electrical boxes.

I also reused another, somewhat larger, box from the previous layout. I assembled the BLMA boxes using CA and some Kristal Klear, and removed the painting from the old one. That one was already mounted on a concrete slab made from plaster, but the other two got new styrene foundations.

Then I painted all three of them using a light gray paint. The styrene foundations got some tan color as well. Here is one of the smaller boxes installed on the layout.

A view from above tunnel #15 showing the larger box as well.
