(F) WWI 60cm trains film

I don't think this has been posted here. If it has my apologies for the repost. Here's a 15 minute video of mainly French 60cm railways in WWI. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Watch for the strange suspended railway (guys pushing little cars on an elevated track) around the 9-10 minute mark. htt...

I have this layout bookmarked and have downloaded a number of pics. I constantly go back and look at it for inspiration. As far as I'm concerned I think its one of the best I've seen.

The Andsome is hysterical. I really like the Clishay in the video collection on Youtube.

Brian, Very cool, I'll be watching to see what develops. As it happens I'm starting to tinker with Gn15. I've settled on using a very very cheap hollow chore core ($6 on clearance) which measured 17.5"x80". I added a piece of 1" pine ripped down to add another inch. I originally put a...

Thanks for the links to pics. All of the models shown are very cool. I feel better now with its size. The size and weight of this scale/gauge combination really make a $10 mechanism run well. I stopped by the LHS and picked up a Fleischmann Magic Train On30 gondola. It's just about the same size as ...

Here it is painted up: http://my.gn15.info/painted1sm.jpg http://my.gn15.info/painted2sm.jpg I'm not sure if I like the grey scheme and I may clean it up a bit no matter what color I end up using. I'm also thinking I may have to put some buffers on even though I'm modeling North American stuff. Not ...

Wheel size??

I'm a bit stymied here. I want to make some rolling stock, most likely some flats, gons and maybe boxcars. These will be a bit larger than estate type rolling stock. HO wheels look just too small to me even though we're doing nominally 15"gauge and 1:24 scale. What are you all using for wheels?...

(F) First Gn15 venture

Well after reading these forums for a long time I've decided to give this Gn15 stuff a try. On30 is ok but I'm really liking the heft of 1:24 scale. My 45mm layout has gone from 1:24 to 1:20 but the lure of 1:24 is still present. So having picked up a Mehano trolley at a swap meet (I didn't really c...
