Ben’s been in touch with is train diorama – what a great use of ‘spare parts’.
I had an old crusty locomotive and I didn’t know what to do with it. So I came up with an idea for a train diorama.
I weathered it a little although nature already did some of its own.
I bought the base at a hobby store. I printed out scenery for the background.
Thought I would share it with you and your subscribers. I call it “The End of the Line”. The title made sense since it’s an abandoned locomotive.
I really enjoy your emails!

I have enjoyed seeing others layouts from your emails for years. I have just complete my two level O-scale layout taking about 3 years on and off.
My layout is not a single place and time but more so a collection of memories or places/buildings I really liked.
Over the past three 3 years I have acquired road names engines and rolling stock the ran through Saint Louis, Missouri USA.
Thank you to all your readers and to you for sharing good ideas.
I saw your recent post from Roberto with recycled tracks rails as a cargo for his wagons. Attached are some photos of my use for the spare sleepers. I made coal bunkers with the redundant sleepers and coal from the foam that protected my last computer. Coal in the trucks is random lumps off the sole of old flip-flops (thongs in Australia)
Best wishes to you and all your readers
A big thanks to Ben, Jim and Andrew.
