Russ-I have seen your cool little Garratt before. Quite nice. I will, however, tell you what was told to me about my Garratt-we would be whipped in England because we don't have valve gear! I responded that mine was built by Glover in Mariatta, GA without authorization. You will need a "story" for yours also. Actually, it could be Garratt envy!!!???   LOL

Well speaking of "Sn2 Narrow" I just joined the club. My initial test order from Shapeways came in. Here's a few shots of a simple freelance Sn2 diesel. I need to put on some couplers and do painting now...

Also, I think I'm going to start typing "Sn2N" now instead of "Sn2 Narrow".

As Russ has shown, 1:64 on 9mm works well. I've got a pic somewhere (on my real computer) of Barry McClellan's On18 Brookville manned by Santa and crew in 1:64 - will post it later.

Russ,

Thanks!
I'm interested in your Sn2N (I agree titus) micro layout very much.
And On18 Garratt!! Wow, very cool! Good job, Russ.
Please show us the making progress, and your other Sn2N models.


Titus,

Your diesel critter is cute. I'd like to build one for my Sn2N railroad.


Well, I'm building a 24 ft. reefer car, misappropriating incomplete boxcar body which my friend made and gave me a couple of years ago.

A couple photos from the archives-

The second Sn20 layout built on the scrap foam leftover from a turntable installation.

Also dig back way back thru the MicroLayout website for a couple more shots.





Layout #3- 2x3 feet, almost all track.

Hidden yard on lower level, climbed up thru a canyon to a running loop with a station and siding then a branchline continued up to what was going to be a mine but wound up a tourist trap with the addition of the Big Giant Head.








And last but not least - Pelican Phosphates, photo by Stumpy Stone.





Also some  current 2 foot stuff - this is the Alvada Two Footer over near Fostoria - Owner - Rich Craig.

Open mostly by invitation - been there several times; we will be having a summer MiniBunch meet there June 25.














Railroad is a about 3/4 of a mile, he has a 30 x 70 foot shop with a pit, now building a small yard with a 3-way switch into it.

Titus - I have dxf files for a Plymouth TLC almost like the one in the photo's, contact me off group if you are interested.   - Russ

Russ,

Wow! Pizza micro layouts! Interesting!
I've ever seen your second Sn2 Pizza on the Small Layout Scrap Book site.
http://www.carendt.us/scrapbook/page2/index.html
http://www.carendt.us/scrapbook/page17/index.html

Did you use PECO track and turnouts for your micros?

Two-foot critters are also interesting.
Were they originally used at the factories?
Great stuff.

Thanks, Russ!

And, my turn.
24 ft. reefer car project is goin' on.

Greetings from On30 modeler:

Outstanding work, very inspirational, excellent photos.  I also visited you website, as must see for any modeler regardless of scale, gauge or genre; and I have taken away some ideas that will help me develop my buildings.

Thanks & regards,

Larry

Here is another little electric critter, rather inspired by those of Junior. Its done by 3-d printing (from Shapeways) and is on a Kato tram chassis. It's nominally 5.5 mm scale on 9mm track representing 20" or 50cm gauge but would also work for S scale.

Larry,

Welcome to the neo dark side! :glad:

The layout that you're building is good looking.
I am looking forward to the finish of your work.

Regards,

Junior

tebee,

Wow! Good job!  Thank you tebee.
This is the first time to see the 5.5 mm scale electric critter.
It looks like some of my On30 or Sn locos. :glad:










Regards,

Junior


P.S.

Sn2 24 ft. reefer car had been completed.
