    Default Red Rock Northern

    Just a quick introduction, I am new to the forum although I have been lurking for a while. I have been out of n scale for 20+ years while I was concentrating on 7 1/2” live steam, I decided to get back into n scale when I realized how far DCC had come. I am currently building the Red Rock Northern from “102 Realistic Track Plans”, the original was drawn for HO so I just made a few adjustments but kept it about the original size. The bench work and hidden trackage is all complete, the foam is in and shaped as well as the rock work, currently putting down cork and laying track, using Micro Engineering code 55 flex with Fast Tracks hand laid switches. Just wanted to say hi and thanks for having me.

    Welcome to the forum @Southwestern737

    The pace seems a little slow here right now, but by all means let's see pictures and words from the progress of your layout.
    (Pics of 7 1/2" live steamers will do nicely too )

    I haven’t taken any photos of the layout and it is covered with tools right now. I will practice posting with a couple of live steam pics.

    Bryan,
    The “Los Pinos” No.5 is a product of Oz, it was built For export by Willis Light Engineering, they were hoping to export a large number of them, but this is the only one that made it to the US, lots of their engines in Oz.
