Thanks for the comments lads.

Lucas this layout has been underway since 1994 and is almost complete except for about 5 buildings that I need to scratch build.

I needed something else to do so chose On30 in another shed so yep two layouts.


Here are a few more images of Winfield.

 




The Winfield station is a laser kit however all of the stumps holding up the right hand end of the building were added.







The building in the background was kit bashed  from a building by Walthers.

Most of the towns are only 30 cm (12 in) wide.

I'm hosting one of my monthly ops sessions tonight and running with a fast clock for the first time so that could be interesting.

Well the clock worked but my timetable didn't work as I would have liked so back to do some more work on that over the weekend.



Fitzpatrick Plastics was scratch built using plans published in MR way back in the 80's I think. I had to alter the plans to suit the site







The cantilever signals were designed and built by a good friend using brass etchings, they match the SF and SP almost perfectly.

Now we are heading to Hackney. The curves from Winfiled to Hackney are superelevated.






The Mc Farlane Ready Mix plant at Hackney is scratch built and the mixers are die cast kits from G.H.Q.

This small building was scratch built from a building I had seen during a rail-fan trip to Ransom, following the Santa Fe main line West from Chicago.




Most of this elevator at Hackney was scratch built. The bins were from Rix.

Now we head for Red Rock. The barn was scratch built.




The Gas station is from Showcase Miniatures, Joe did the Mobilgas decal for me.




These two buildings were scratch built, the loading ramp is a kit.



The Farmers Co-op elevator at Red Rock is also scratch built.

Thanks Lucas.

 All of the trees are from Scenic Express. I purchased a large box of them many years ago from Bragdon when I was able to visit a train show in San Jose I think about 1996. The ground foam is from SE also. My ground cover is mostly from Carrs an english company that I blended to get away from Woodland Scenics to try something dfferent.

We are now entering Perry. Perry used to be Guthrie before I did the extention to the RR room back in 2008/9. Guthrie is now around the corner on the new penisular.








One thing I regret not doing is putting in service tracks beside the tracks in some places for road crews to service turnouts,signals etc. After following the SF all the way from Chicago to Oklahoma on one of my visits, I noticed just how many there were and it would have been a nice addition.
