Andy, I can't remember the name :oops: but somebody produces "tram track" in OO/HO. I do remember however it was not cheap :shock: But if this will be the feature of the entire layout it may be worth the consideration.

Good luck with your endeavours.

I think you can "make" a cross over using PECO track components. Then again I could be talking rubbish :shock:

Nice start though. Interesting idea's.

I have not responded to this thread for some time because what I wanted to say had already been said etc. I must admit here and now as not being a great fan of this style of machine however that does not stop me from being simply amazed and stunned at both the level of detail and overall workmanship...

You probably could squeeze another track in there but I'm not sure if it would be beneficial to the overall concept.

View blocker is good, like that.

Looking forward to this. I need some ideas! :twisted: :shock:

That's looking good Nick. I'm sure the track will be fine once it's go some ballast round them as well.

It's amazing how once you have made a start how quickly things can come together until you run out of materials that is :(

Rolling stock also looking good on there.

For some reason I had it in my mind that the cab opening would be the other side, but your way round hides the castings which held the seat, brakes, etc; That's exactly right. Looks a little different as well. The exhaust is simply a piece of brass tube. Bob.

That's a great picture. It looks like there's loads of room. Looking forward to the "second board". Might there be board three or four in the pipe line? Honest question, not trying to start rumors :)

More ideas to come I'm sure.

Thanks for the information. I've been using "Veka" board. We use it at work to line out ambulances. It's about 6mm thick and is fairly easy to work.

Will give foam board a try though.

Because I don't have a copy of Tom's book I have no idea what the finished machine will look like. However I was not expecting that frame work etc. :shock:

Detail is excellent. I'm wondering what the next surprise will be. Can't wait.

Like it a lot.

Lutley Chain and Ancher works.
