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 !!!!

And a shot of my dual scale On30/G scale portable layout.
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.
Thanks for the Welcome Ronnie; I like yor pics there alot, that real woodsy look is great!thats where I'm headed with my layout, do you have a layout plan I could see?, I hope to see more of large scale indoor modeling from folks, I'd like to keep an eye on your work, thanks Randy May
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. Can't wait to see your work.
