  • Images From An Incredible N-Scale Layout



    My good Friday Night Group friend, Marty Phillips, moved out west to Vancouver Island over a decade ago.

    He quickly met other model railroad friends on the island and started another operations group.

    One of his friends, Malcolm West, is building this incredible N-scale layout.



    Malcolm sent me these images tonight.



    He and Marty get together to work on each other's layout quite a bit, I hear.



    I really like the lighting in these pics.



    This "going away" shot looks great as well!



    The colours of the locomotives certainly complement the mood that is being conveyed.



    All the images are from slightly differing angles.



    I'll have to ask Malcolm how he came to model the CSX while living out on the west coast!



    Looks like some switching is happening here.



    Thanks for checking in. Man, seeing such great modelling like this in N sure can make an HO guy hesitate a bit and think about changing scales!

      Yeah Mike you need to switch to the Normal scale! That is a very nice looking layout.

          that's some beautiful work, particularly when you think it's N-scale.

              Thanks Mike! I agree with what everyone else has already said. That is great modeling, regardless of the scale.

                    This is outstanding!

                    This work reminds me of Mike Confalone's layout (featured in Model Railroader's Model Railroad Planning 2007). I believe his was HO scale. It is another great example of capturing mood in a small space.

                    Like these photos, I have seen very few examples where shallow scenes were so skillfully blended into the background and the tone of the modeling (and photos) captured the mood so well.

                    Every time I hear someone comment that shelves (or modules) don't provide enough depth for convincing modeling I refer to examples like these.

                    Thanks for posting these Mike.
                    Thanks,

                          Beautiful shots & Layout, Mike!!

                          Scenes like this ARE what convinced me to switch to N scale!!!

                          The main body of my Layout is only 2 feet wide. THIS gives me, and I'm sure others, ideas & inspiration!!
