Welcome Gary.

Here are a couple of pages with pics (no idea what it says though) on a 2 foot gauge critter that's close to yours -

Thanks guys! :D I started mods to the critter by beefing out the radiator, new engine compartment doors, muffler, etc. I started modifying a figure to fit. http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n214/altterrain/Gn15/Gn15critter2a.jpg http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n214/altterrain/Gn15/Gn15critter2b....

I agree, even with the colors a bit off its a most useful picture to see how it all fits together. It also demonstrates how tricky indoor photography can be even for the more veteran photographers! :wink:

Yes the scenery! More accurately. "Screw the rivets, I'm building for atmosphere" Also, getting back to working on the loco and rolling stock.
I can't take credit for the doors and windows though. I had a large stash of left overs from various kits, mostly Colorado Models kits.

I built my new mini layout on a foam insulation board base. You can use regular pins to hold the track in place. They make it easy to make changes. I removed the heads from the pins then bent little U's on the end for final placement.

Slow but steady progress being made. I tweaked the sidings a bit to make them a bit longer. It works great. The interior track has been flushed and "concreted" in. The rest of the track has been ballasted. Buildings have been outlined. Now the fun part of structure building can commence! h...

Really like the colourful buildings, should look great in model form. For the layout, I would suggest going back to your original plan and have just a single siding on the right Brian. Not only would it do away with the tight clearances, you would also be able to fit more cars in, probably 4 or 5, ...
