Is it too late to join in on this? I sure hope not, as I've just spent £9 on a 3'x 2' cork board! :P

Quick question ready for when my board turns up - it says on the first page that the Bachmann 70T locomotive will go round 9.5" radius curves. Will 38' fishbelly type coal hoppers go around those curves too?

I'm short on cash at the moment, so I'm hoping I can make use of what I already have. The locomotive works, so will 4 axle coal cars work alongside it?

I'd like to make a small coal hauling micro, as I've pretty much got everything I need to make one! :D

Not sure about that one. You could always shorten the car with a razor saw. Are you modeling in HO or ON30?

My board arrived. :)

Got to work on my O scale layout above everything else at the moment, but as soon as I'm able I'll be working on turning my board into an On30 layout. :)

I've had a brainstorming session of sketching multiple little track plans for mine, for various different themes. I've settled on an On30 micro - a small Louisiana town using Clevermodels kits.

I'm not sure exactly how many of these kits I'll be able to fit in the space available, but I'll shuffle stuff around as I go.

It'll be a while before I get to start on this one, due to the upcoming exhibition of my O scale layout in the middle of April, so my attention is focused there for the foreseeable future.
