Stoney Creek RR is a Large Scale Railroad Located in East haven Ct. The next town over from East Haven (Branford) is a a small area in that town called Stony Creek. I like the name for some unknown reason so I wanted it a little different so I added the e in Stony so as not to think it was in Branford.
I have been into large Scale for over 20 years and and do enjoy it.I enjoy scratch building,so most if not all my structures are built by me in my spare time.
I am a Co Founder of the Central Connecticut G Gauge Module Club and a Member of Large Scale on Line (LSOL). I am in my Retirement years and loving it. My time is spent in my work shop building Structures. I am building a new Logging mill for a new project to start in the spring of 2011. The theme will be Logging in 1/20.3 Scale. Photos below are of a mill I built in 1997. It was built to be used on our modules and was used for years. The time has come to retire it as I am getting up in age. It gets difficult to travel with it to shows.
The retired Mill is 3ft x 5ft and 39 inches in Height. The new Mill will be 56 inches X 8ft and 58 inches in Height.

This logging Caboose is a Northeast Narrow gauge kit. I am not a big fan of Kit cars but I got a excellent price at the East Coast Show so I could not pass it up. The direction are not to bad.
I did make some changes to the roof material.What I did,once the roof was installed I spread Tite Bond 3 glue over the entire roof(thin) and I layed paper towel over it. It kind of gives the effect of a tar or tar paper roof.I was pleased how it looked when it dried and I painted it black.

This low side Gondola was scratch built and a fun project to do. As I have the time I will list the material and size if one would like to build one for there railroad. A note here most detail parts are ozark minitures and the trucks are to your choice
