Moving right along...



Still getting the hang of this hand laying thing, but it's not as difficult as I expected it to be. I just have to force myself to go slowly, and take my time.

While glue dries on ties, I'm working on our next kit...

Got the HOn30 log car kits in production




And started working on a Sango 2-6-0 Dachshund. Quite a lot of fun.

Did you snag that 2-6-0 from Toma? It lists them as out of stock now, but I'm hoping there will be a reissue.

I did Tim! I think I bought his last one. I ordered, and then told some friends, and they said he was sold out! Right place, right time. Dumb luck!

Wow, I had one of those Dachsund kits back when I was building my HOn30 layout. Never got around to building it, ended up selling it on ebay when I got into large scale.

Spent yesterday wiring frogs and adjusting turnouts. The end result is a functional layout! I'm working on uploading a short clip of it to YouTube to share. It's nothing fancy, but it's a good clip of just how smooth the MinitrainS F&C locomotive runs.

Enjoy your week!

Hi Rich,
You forget how small these models are, seeing photos etc, until you see your video and watch it run past a screwdriver!!!!
Nice work as usual

Greetings! :s:
I love this micro layout and little engines. :rah:

SANGO's Dachshunds have been Japanese narrow gauge modelers' favorites since 1973.
