The Kingstone Model Works web site is getting an update and some remodeling. All of the construction projects will be presented here instead of being uploaded to forums. It's a waste of time and duplication.

March 21, 2012

New site launched. The new Kingstone Model Works is going to concentrate on model railroading and nothing else. I might weave a bit but it'll pretty much be railroad related. Two new sections have been opened, The Critter page and the My Ramblings page. Enjoy if your interested.

On Monday, June 18, 2012 the "Kingstone Model Engineering" site will be shut down permanently. This site will take it's place and be geared toward my favorite subject - Model Railroading.

March 22, 2012

Moved the "4" Truck Shay pages from the old web site to this site. Still lots to do to fix up errors and update the Shay project pages.

March 26, 2012

Uploaded the first of a series of projects for a Walthers Rotary Dumper. I have modified this dumper so that it will work with two bay hoppers up to quad bay hoppers. After this mod the dumper, I believe will probably not work with the wood chip gondolas or the bathtub coal gondolas used in unit trains. I'm thinking that it could also be used as an On30 dumper to transfer bulk loads to standard gauge line. You'll find the project under HO Structures.

March 29, 2012

More added to the Rotary Dumper page.

March 30, 2012

Added first HOn3 page. The fixing and finishing of a Clear Creek Models D&RGW Gondola.

April 3, 2012

Added more to Rotary Dumper build.

September 3, 2012

In an effort to get a model railroad built I've decided I need to put the four truck Shay project on hold for an indefinite time. Also the On30 projects have been moth balled for now in an effort to build an HO scale layout. I've been working on several HO projects simultaneously, the rotary dumper, the electric box cab, a set of FT's A & B units, and several other's I haven't even had a chance to post to the web site. I hope to catch up on the projects and get them posted soon.

I've deleted the links for the On30 and O scale projects for now and I'm going to concentrate on HO models. The projects that are being worked on now will go in conjunction with the layout.

The new home page will reflect these changes. More to come, so come back often.

September 3, 2012

Added a new page.
