So I've decided to take a short detour down the Walther's National Model Railroader's Build Off. Initially I'll post information about the contents of the Individual Class Coal Country kit . I just received most of the kit on 2/9/2021. The track appears to have been shipped in a different package, which seems reasonable since its dimensions are considerably different than the rest of the pieces. The kit cost $100 + shipping. If purchased the pieces individually it would have cost $184.83 the full prices or $173.83 with the sale prices. If you are a part of the Year Master's Club you get the 10% of which brings the price down to $90 + free shipping, seemed like a good deal to me even if I don't win the contest. Package Contents: Walther's Cornerstone - Coal Flood Loader Part # 933-3051 Price: $39.98 (on sale 2/9/2021 for $33.98) https://www.walthers.com/coal-flood-loader-kit-4-x-6-x-11-quot-10-2-x-15-2-x-27-9cm Walther's Cornerstone - Industry Office Part

After watching Luke Towan's Chain link fence video I was inspired to create my own version. Since not everyone has soldering skills or styrene readily available I decided to create a 3d printed version. Here's a comparison of the materials used in the different methods: Metal: 18 Gauge Galvanized Steel Wire Nylon Tulle Solder (60% Tin 40% Lead) Flux Super Glue (Thin and Gel versions) 32 Gauge Jewelry Wire Rustoleum Winter Grey Spray Paint Dull Coat Styrene: 0.8mm Styrene Rod Plastic Cement Nylon Tulle Super Glue (Thin and Gel versions) 32 Gauge Jewelry Wire Rustoleum Winter Grey Spray Paint Dull Coat 3D Printed: 3d Printed posts (thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4712473 ) (Uses approximately 290mm of filament for 60 scale feet) Nylon Tulle ( Amazon ) Super Glue ( Amazon ) Thread or 32 Gauge Jewelry Wire Silver or Grey Spray Paint ( Michaels ) Dull Coat .One advantage of the 3d printed version is that it is cheaper and quicker to create.
