    Hi Larry and all

    Off course you could have gone straight and just gone up and down....



    May I present "Jaxcilliest Enterprises", an operational hoist-and-dump layout in an less area than a sheet of writing paper.

    That's cool, Larry. Every time I see something like this it gets my wheels turning on tiny portable layouts. Hmmm....

    Love it Larry, well done. There's no excuse for 'I don't have space'!

    Many more engines did loops today. The little grandit line battery engines look right at home.

    The N scale track oval is 19" X 22". It was used to bust balls for somebody that said you couldn't battery power an HOn30 engine. He never laid down any ground rules.

    Smallest oval layout I saw was a 50 cent piece as the inner track and a rail for an outer track. Can't remember the scale though.

    Very similar to the 50+ YO suite case layout...

    Moving pretty good for 9 Volts.....

    Larry, I remember as a kid, my father showing us an article in a train magazine, of the very thing you speak of. It was an HO layout in a suite case.

    Built by a air flying business man. I think I was

    8 or 9. So roughly 53 or 54 years ago.... [:-moptop]

    Bernd,

    Neat railroad what is the overall size?

    My resin pusher at BVM sent an email out about re-running an old kit a few weeks ago. It is one of my favorite engines and I have three kits sitting here ready to build. Sorry Dallas no new bucks from me. But hey the one I have built (DCC) is running well for its test on the 6" radius loop.

    Thanks Ted,

    Next step is a suit case layout that fits the airlines overhead bin requirements, complete with operational potential. I travel a lot for work.
