The Triple Rock RR

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Nice one. Versatile too: weren't there buildings in the middle before.

G'Day Chris,
Looks like a gnice job was done on your speeder. Your speeder is a bit more substantial then my version was from the dim distant dark ages at http://www.gn15.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8135

I'd be careful mixing dragons with brimstone though :shock:
Enjoy, and

But I can put three houses in the middle of the layout. Now I can call it "The Triple House RR". :lol: :lol:

A second track (9mm) has been laid on my layout. Now I can watch all my stuff rolling.

I did an electrical test with a Hornby 0-4-0 to find out the lowest possible voltage for this loco. This small teapot works well at 3.6 volts as you can see: Low voltage test
