Looking forward to the next steps.

Iíve never finished a big job without thinking of ways to do it differently, but itís best to resist these urges. For now . . .

Kyle,
Great rock work! I'll have to refer to this thread when I start doing my quarry.
Interesting dual gauge siding. Nice track work.

Kyle,
Is the dual gauge article in the Railway Age gazette?

Thanx for the comments and advice fellas; Y'all are all correct. It's so funny though, 'cause sometimes when I look at the layout I can see the rotated 4x8 section with the afternoon special rolling through Dilapidated and rounding the curve at the concrete retaining wall and scooting right through Scavenger...ER, UMM, OH YEAH, I'M NOT CHANGING IT!!!!!!!! Man I gotta get finished with all these 1:1 garden projects/landscaping honey-do's before I miss-place what few marbles I do have still rolling around in this 67 1/2 year old brain I'm lucky to have. I'VE GOT A MINIATURE RAILROAD TO BUILD!!!!!!Thanx again guys......

P.S. I got the idea for the dual gauge trackwork from an article in the gazette showing how the EBT used this concept to transfer std. gauge ore cars to narrow gauge trucks. They just rolled the cars in and raised them up by pushing them along with beams under them attached to wheels on an outside rail and rolled the std. gauge trucks away and rolled the narrow gauge trucks up to the proper position and reversed the procedure to lower the cars back down onto the narrow gauge trucks which were on the EBT tracks. At least the way I understood the procedure. Anyway, I'm just using them for extra siding space when needed. BYE.

The Canadian National did the same thing with standard gauge cars at Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland in the last decades of 3' 6" gauge Newfoundland railroading. Of course, they had no tunnels and no close-clearance bridges to worry about.

Just relocated an old bldg. from Ft. Compton to Scavenger, now the old reversing loop section that passes through here also becomes a 2 ended siding (or something like that).
All for now...

Kyle looking good!!! I like the building color; nice contrast to be scenery. Hope the Engineer takes it slow around the curve or that could be real bad.

Thanx Larry,
Thanx Rick,
OK, here's a few more shots from around Scavenger. The last 2 cars on the MOW train are scratch built, the last one is built on an HO track cleaning car frame. I just removed the body and built it out to the right width and built a little caboose type structure, made some grab irons and away she goes doing MOW (cleaning the track). Oh yeah, the locomotive is my 'chopped nose' 0-4-4-2 (I removed the pilot wheels and cut down the pilot) for some reason it just wanted me to??!!
