    Fantastic photos, OTFan! You are planning some sort of irrigation for that field? And maybe some tractor tracks to and around it?

    No, I only had about 30. You might need a camp mattress on the cot. Or, perhaps, a gurney.

    The cot was great, especially when mounting the machines under one end of the yard or Bahnhof, where I...

    I used an old army cot to lay under the layout to mount the Tortoises on the new layout. Made everything much easier. Followed by a short nap.

    Houses built in the first two decades of the 20th century often had windows and doors that we would regard as nonstandard. Eight foot doors and 10 foot ceilings were not uncommon, though more common...

    That looks fantastic! I hope your daughter enjoyed the process. How old is she and what did you have her do on this diorama?

    I use 1/8" open cell charcoal foam. Comes cheap in LARGE sheets. I cut strips to fit each situation. Just use diluted Elmer's to glue, and to glue track to foam once the glue holding the foam has...

    I share Paul's concern about the radii of the tracks on the south end. The middle of long passenger cars will overhang the curve, and potentially contact the ends of cars on the next track inside. ...

    When you do find that pin, set the roof shingle side down on a piece of foamboard to do the piercing. That will prevent the lifting.

    Nice progress and a good looking train. Of course I'd like to see a full Rheingold taking those majestic curves. :)

    Unless the building is removable. Some positioning guides on the inside, and lighting mounted on an internal structure would make this easier.

    Interesting changes. I don't like the S bend on the left side of the consist/car storage tracks. I'm surprised that you didn't simply continue the string of right hand turnouts off of the through...

    NOW you come up with this? I finished laying track on the new layout last week. Sigh.

    About 6 years ago Caboose Hobbies lost the lease on the building. The family decided to retire, rather than move that huge inventory, and so sold the business but not the trademarked name.

    I used a cheap Black & Decker circular saw to rip 1/2" plywood into strips for my framing. I've had that saw since 1978. The first strip becomes a saw guide to ensure straight cuts.

    I like sid's idea of an ice cream plant. Doing an oil fired power plant would entail high tension power lines from the plant and possibly to a transformer substation - might be more than you want. ...
