George, I have a boiler, a cab and the saddle tank to go with the actual Bachmann porter loco. I have no use for it, and was not sure what I was going to do with it. The porter loco is a very small loco, therefor the boiler opening at the bottom only measures 10.52mm so if you have a chassis and a m...

Michael, your calling in life should have been a professional model maker for the studios of the world, where your handy work could have been viewed for not just us at Gn15 but for all walks of life. All I can say is SUPERB.

Simple but effective,having been in HO for a long period of time I've yet to come to terms that a small layout with a couple of switches or a turn table has just as much charm and character.
Looks good Gerd.

Switches

This site may already have been posted.Those among us or new members who want to make switches check out the variety they have in different gauges. I have seen the N gauge components to build a switch and quality is very good and the finished product is 1st class. http://www.handlaidtrack.com/ho.php...

I like it Andrew, It reminds me of late fall just before the snow.
In particular the building on the right. It would fit beautifully along a rugged
