Hi there... well, it continues. The FALLER Gravel Crusher/Loader arrived and some more track is on the way. I have some idea of what I want it to be but until the track arrives I am a bit stuck.The Gravel works will be one center , the other the quarry..... So the imagination is working overtime.......

Re: Estate Elongate

Great Idea!
That may give me the chance to expand my planned layout. I am restricted by the room available on the shelf. But I have enough room in separate areas, so on occasion the 2 could be married....
thanks, for this idea!
I' keep reading...

Re: HOn2 a mini...

No sweat Chris, was more of a satirical post on my end......
Am just in a rut at the time. The Stuff available on line does not give any sizes and the stores here do not carry it.
So thanks anyway.

The loco was build using a Bachman N Scale Switcher with a scratch Cab. The dump cars are old ROCO ones. Since I am very limited in space (69 X 39 CM ) I am looking...
