      Thanks Jerry. I have figures on this layout from too many companies to remember.

      They are all white metal or 3d printed. I did post a figure reference thread a few years back. I will bump it to the top of the list for you.

ID:	972576My little layout has been recovered from six months of storage and the first trains ran for 5 hours flawlessly. The Layout will live in my home office and I have purchases 4 display cases that are 31" wide, 20 inches high and 3.5 inches deep. There will be 20 shelves so I can keep all my critters close by. Next up is to install sound effects. So happy to be running some trains again.

            • Larry,
              Just came across this thread. I read the first page, realized it was an older thread and jumped to the last page.
              That is a beautiful little layout! I am going to read thru the whole thread.

              • Larry,

                First, thanks for bumping this thread again, Phillip and Larry.
                Larry, Is this layout part of the 2' x3' cork board thread?

                Second, Scott, thanks for replying to Larry's thread. I have never seen this particular layout and I like what I see here.

                I would like to make something similar in HO scale, if possible.
                Are the layout's electricals located in the cupboard below the layout?

                  Rich, The layout is just resting on the black cabinet for now. I plan on making a base under it to store electronics including sound. Good luck if you decide to build a little layout.

                  • Larry,
                    Read thru the whole thread. Lots of details, lots of character! Beautiful workmanship.
                    As others have said, it's a whole lot packed into a little space.
                    Cool cache of critters too! I enjoyed the videos.

                        Mount Blue Models and a bunch of details.

                    • Good thing you have reliable track and rolling stock with that large drop off to the right of the train.

                        I have never had a derailment on this layout. I'm sure I just jinxed myself.
