I spent Sunday pulling out a new cork board and laying a new track pattern for a different layout. I am thinking of Wild Bill's fronter town and show. The scale will be 1/55 3 foot gauge. I am thinking of using undersized o scale structures that I have and some gaming figures mixed with 1/50 modern people. Who says you do not have room for a layout that could keep you busy for a year or two.

The track and Porter will be ON30 but scales to 1/55 3' track.



Come on get out of your arm chairs folks.

I'd say you're off to a good start, Larry.

You're further along on two projects than I am with one.
Looks good Larry.

Wow that was fast!, Dallas did you see the critter to the right? Remember it? I guess I better start painting gaming figures soon.

Rick donít despair. Itís a tortoise and hare mind thing.

I see youíve planned the switches but did you consider No. 3ís or 4ís to give you more room? Those longer switches donít give you as much room to manover.

I am definitely the tortoise.

Frank, I did consider using smaller switches but I already had one #5 and a friend was kind enough to offer making another for me.
They'll be fine for what I want to do.

Rick,
You can get there, the rules only state it has to run by thanksgiving. The whole point is to be able to run a train.

Due to unrelenting requests for a progress from the On30 Lounge crew , here is a progress picture.
Got the two switches installed, stained the ties and started painting the pink foam a tan color.
After finishing the painting I'll start getting some dirt down and then I can start installing the rail.
Sorry for the harsh shadows.
