THERE YA GO! Any mention of the scale? There was a discussion about "pole roads" modeling years ago, I am glad that somebody took it to heart. I am so very glad that this "dark side" doesn't haunt me any more.

Hi Woodie
Scale is 1/43, gauge is a scale 3'6".

I'll kick off a separate thread for this layout in a few days time in the Logging and Mining section. I have a few more photos to go with the previous one :bg:

The Kiwi wooden rails operations are perfect for our overscale, deep-flanged model wheels, aren't they? Open-hearth size matchsticks may become short in supply in some areas once the idea gets hold....

Looking through my 'scale lumber' collection...

...I see that 'toffee-apple sticks' could be perfect rail lengths in 1:35


;)

Hey y'all, dig this, a Swiss railroad bridge folds to clear avalanche path; there's one I didn't see coming, and yet it is so logical and sensible.
Next thought, "Look ma, just like a garden railway!"

"Remarks & Notes Snow clearance on the Furka pass line of the Dampfbahn Furka Bergstrecke (DFB). The Steffenbach bridge, which is folded down during the winter to give the avalanches a free path, is ready for assembling in a few days."

So the future of model railroading lies deep in the past... A question to ponder while pretending to work.
Jose,
