Richard has been in touch. He’ shared his double track N scale bridge layout:
I’m a first time contributor to your web page.
I started this N scale layout about 3 to 4 years ago.
I am slow but steady. The layout size is 14 feet by 9 feet. I have 100 foot of 12 gauge buss wire under the layout.
Everything on the layout I have built and painted by hand. A lot of trial and error.
When I started out, I knew nothing about trains or modeling. This is my first layout.
Hope you enjoy the pics,
Now on to Brad:
I ask a complicated question maybe someone can answer.
HO scale is 1:87, yet HO scale slot cars are 1:64.
This creates some “fun” when buying vehicles even in diecast.
Hotwheels are mostly 1:64 but they do have a few in 1:87.
So,can someone tell me why despite the same “HO” designation and the actual sizes differ?
If HO slot cars were 1:87,it would be easy to add a roadway into your train layout, or vice versa if HO trains were 1:64 it would make life easy for us all who model this scale.
just a short video, showing and hearing the power on these Deltics fitted with a em2 speaker…blows your socks off as they say …

That’s all for today folks.
A big thanks to Rich for sharing his double track N scale bridge layout, thanks to Dave too – and who can help Brad?
And talking of scales, we’ve had quite a run of N scale recently, but if you want to see your scale, please do keep’ em coming. Just email me.
To submit pics please don’t send more than three per mail – but send as many mails as you like.
That’s all this time folks – but don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want your day dreams to appear on your table.
