I like the bogie wagon. Not thought of doing that. Good idea. Perhaps Steve B will come up with something! Chopping a couple of his wagons and mounting onto a new plasticard base could be a possibility.
What radii does this go round?

In my experience with my son when 'playing' with trains, 'scale' does not seem to matter and quite happy to mix various toys of different sizes to suit the play mode at the time. As time goes on, i.e. when he has grown up (now 12) a better sense of scale starts to form. The important thing is that t...

A great start :D
I like the size of the buildings and the sloping bank. It does lend itself to being viewed from all sides.
Looking forward to seeing this progress. :D

Very nice work. Full of details and everything blends in well. Like the grass growing around the track and timber supports.
Thanks for sharing with us.

I thought that you might want to see the following taken at Expong 2005 and from what I can remember is 0n14 and built by someone in France. Sorry can't remember anymore details. I have a few more photos and can post if useful. http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/mudmagnet202/misc%20railway/fre...

Thanks for posting the overall view. Looks nicely balanced. I wouldn't be too concerned that the layout looks smaller. The placement of the buildings draws your eyes into the scene. Works for me!

Reminds me of the technique used by Lane Stewart, who presented several articles in Narrow Guage and Shortline Gazzette up to a year or so ago. However, he used a series of 3 or 4 angle-poise lamps with different rated bulbs.

I will post more on this if anyone is interested later in the week.

The board size should make it relatively strai...
