Has anybody ever thought of building a portable layout to take to train shows in Large Scale (meaning "G") using battery operated New Bright locomotives. If so please comment to this posting and post some of your work. I'm working on  a 6ft x 12ft Backwoods Logging portable layout now,And would like to know if anybody else have use these locos beside just under the Christmas Tree !!!!

Thanks Herb,

Glad you like the pic's !!! More of my Indoor/Outdoor R&P Lumber Co. layout will be posted soon !! I would like to hear from more Indoor G scale Narrow Gauge Loggers modelers. And why don't we see more of our work  in such publication like (Model Railroader, Narrow Gauge & Short line Gazette & Garden Railways) just to name a few.

Randy,

Thanks for  the reply !!!

My work is all over this forum in On30 and in G scale. Go to the Narrow Gauge section in the search engine and scroll down to "My adventure in Large Scale" and check out my "Run Down And Poor Lumber Co." G scale  layout. If you recieve the Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette or Garden Railways Magazine my layout was featured in both magazines. in 2003.

 

Many Regards: Ronnie D.:cb: Can't wait to see your work.
