Here's a quick seek peek at my plans for a "New" micro layout I'm building in G scale called "The Elk Creek & Crow Hill Lumber Co. The dark center line down the middle of the layout will be double sided back drop. This is a 4ft x 6ft  2 piece layout and both sections are 70% completed !!!! I will post pics from work in progress soon !!!!

Happy New Year !!! everyone.

Woodie,

Many thanks !!!

I believe in keeping it simple (KISS) but still turning out quality good looking believable work. For this project I decide I wanted to do something I haven't seen most people who model in large scale do. Like use (CHEAP !! New Bright battery operated Trains) on their layout, Because most will use LGB or Bachmann and think that these are only used around the Christmas tree I also used and old coffee can to build my "Water Tank" just like the little On30 one from a sweet Peas can (That I caught a lot of flack from) !!! in that forum. Also I pick up some large scale cowboy and Indian figures from the local "DOLLAR STORE" !!!! that converted in loggers through out the layout. (Why pay for over price figures !!)  when changing and arm here or leg there will give you the same affect as the high dollar figures. Woodie I wanted this layout to be a project that the average modeler could take on with their son or daughter and not have to spend a whole lot of money to build it. And use little odds and end things that the more skilled modeler would never dream of using.

Murray,

Sorry for the slow response !!! But I've been working my butt off on a lot of On30 stuff that I sell. And this project was put on hold until now. !!! It's be enlarged to a bigger layout to take to local train shows here in Denver. Pics of this layout will be coming soon.!!!

 

Many Regards:

Ronnie D.:cb:
