are you sure you can make some sidings in the tunnel to store them? or not store them under the town?

Hi Kris,

For minimum radius PECO sell setrack curves 1 & 2. I only know that 2 is 9 inches, but 1 is tighter.

Sorry I can't be of more use. but thanks for the kind words :)

Internet is hopefully completely fixed, so I wanted to congratulate you on your progress! The ferny foilage looks great, and really fits the scene. Where did you get the lichen from?

Kris,

You can use OO controllers. The engines range from 20 to 100 quid, but you'd be better of asking Lawrence (username is Phillip E. Thomas) about where he gets his and what they're like. I only have the one.

I got the lichen from the leftovers of that summer school thing I did 8)

Hi Doc

Long time (seems) since I've been on. Great progress but glad you got rid of the dreadful green polka dots :roll:

Keep at it and make sure you finish this one as the scenery and idea is great.

Greetings, strangers :lol:

I have been keeping myself busy making some Wild West Ghost Town buildings (and listening to The Eagles :wink: )

I made them from balsa, and I did paint them but they are a little dark :? Im staining them instead now. They are about 3 inches by 1 1/2 inches, and the first things I've built in N scale.

I've been playing around on Xrkcad and I can get quite a big layout if I use most of the loft, so I'm playing with the idea of using the middle and other side too. If I do do it, it would be a Midwestern/Great Plains thing, quite rural.
