Woodie,

I have looked at the various options for models. I live in a high rise loft complex in the heart of downtown Kansas City, MO. That coupled with my eyesight getting a little worse each time I turn around, have left me with a limited number of options. The eyes sort of preclude doing HOn30 anymore; the loft says On2 and larger is simply too big. So I am using HOn3 mechanisms and track standards and building in Sn2. The fact that there isn't an awfully lot available commercially for this oddball combination has made things more interesting. Almost everything is being built from little bitty pieces of wood and plastic. I even modify the regular Tichy HO arch bar truck kits to narrow them for HOn3 wheels. It is slow going, but I am enjoying it. That's the most important part. I have seen examples of your work here on this site and I'm impressed by it.

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.
