HO Scale Tunnel Portal

I tried to mimic the Mansfield Line's south portal.  After I took these photos, I used a light grey weathering powder to tone down the stain and give it some depth.  It really gives it a realistic look.  I have done that on my bridges as well.

Custom HO signs

Made a few signs to see how it will go.  I drew up the signs in AutoCad and scaled them out at 1/87th scale and then printed them on card stock paper.  I then then spray mounted that print-out to another piece of stock to give it some strength.  Cut them out and then I had realistic, scale appropriate railroad signs.
