For Friday the 13th! wall1
The museum has added a TT scale display :mrgreen:
tom,your really on the ball for the WPF's nice pics.you could actually cut a pizza with the wheels on that 0-6-0
nice park seen jeff :thumb: i unfortunatley dont have any pics but i did get my order from walthers so i can continue working on my layout :thumb: --josh
Hi Jeff, your park looks very good! Good idea with the nails and the fence!
I thought it would be a good use for all those 1" satin pins my mother has lying around. I have a box of 400. That'll help with a lot of fencing.
Drove by the local farmers coop today and caught some grain hoppers getting loaded(of course they were done when we came back through and took the pics.
A lone hopper waits to be loaded at the aggregate plant....
Taggers have been busy.

Great pics everyone..!!! Tom...where in the scheme of scales does TT fall..?? Is it between N & Z..? So who's gonna have to back up..??
TT is between N and HO.
TT generally (in N. America at least) is 1/10" = 1' or 1:120. The track gauge is .471".
England adopted a scale of 3mm=1' or close to 1:100 (actually 1:101.6666) on 12mm track gauge. (nearly .471")
TT wasn't quite enough smaller than HO (compare S to O) and was zapped by N which really allowed a lot more running in cramped space.

Having posted a digression, here are some photos from our vacation last February.

My new found practice of studying proto photos BEFORE finishing the model continues here;

Great work everyone. Here's a progress shot of my CPR Lake tug that I'm scratchbuilding:
You can follow it's build at:
More great pics everyone! Madhatter, that sanding tower makes a great reference for modelers. Kyle, your use of proto photos as models for weathering yields excellent results! Glen, I have tug boat envy!
That is Beautiful! If I ever get a bigger layout with a port, I'm gonna need something like that!
