Got a collection of stuff for you today, starting with Mike. All though it’s very short, and only two pics, it really does show that the only way things are going to happen with your layout is to make a start!
My good friend Michael G put me on to your ‘network. We live in Devonshire about 2 miles apart. He is modelling in HO/OO and me in ”N” gauges.
My layout is still very much work in progress, the two pictures will give you some idea; First is ‘Early Days’, The second is about ‘Two Months Ago.’
“I saw the scratch built today. I am in to scratch built if you want to call it that. Mine are all wood and glue with no metal or plastic parts.
The material is pine, popular and maple. There are based on 1/25 scale, this 0-6-0 is 27” long. All the major parts mover as you push it along.
I acquired a lump of coal crushed it, and filled the tender.
The coupling is a Janny style with a removal pin so they can be joined together.
I call it the “Wooden Railroad”
My collection to date is the 0-6-0 ( just finished), GP9, GP9 slug, 50 ft boxcar, high pressure hopper and a new style oil tanker with the baffles on the ends.
And lastly, something that’s not really a train at all. But seeing as I was mesmerized by it, I thought maybe it’s worth posting:
That’s all this time folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
And if you want to make that start, the Beginner’s guide is here.
PS Don’t forget the latest ebay cheat sheet – some great savings about at the mo.
