Man-that's really nice! What scale is this layout? Looks like there's some dual gauge in a couple of the photos. Show us some more...please!

Not my photos or layout (unfortunately) Don.

But the owner Tom will be able to supply details, and hopefully more photos, once he sees that they are posted.

The layout is 12'x14' around the walls, dual gauge HO/HOn3 and track is mostly hand layed.

My wife Lucy did a lot of the scenery including painting the backdrop.

We run DCC sound, mostly geared locos and small trains.

As you can see I'm more interested in detail then opp.

We have started a new section in the other room which will be New England shores and Wharf area like Bar Mills S gauge.

Really well done!

Those are really fantastic pictures.

I really enjoy how you made the fascia at the bottom part of the scenery.

It gives the scene a much greater illusion of reality.
