I haven't posted for a while but I do hide in the weeds to see what's going on.
I've started a YouTube channel to show off many how-to-do-it videos that have never seen the light on day.

I have a 4-part series on building an HOn30 Sugar Cane RR - I'll be filming part 5 this summer. Don't let the scale and gauge put you off. The techniques I'm presenting work for any indoor model RR.

So please check it out - The Trackside Modeler on YouTube. Thanks and enjoy!

After watching the first Sugar Cane vid I think that it would be easier to lay the first piece of track (turnout and 2 branches) if a piece of waxed paper is temporarily placed under the track to be laid last so it would not stick at once.

Thanks Dave! I'm glad you subscribe to the 'don't worry about scale' idea too. Good modeling is good modeling, scale doesn't matter. I am sure lots of folks miss a lot because they never look at anything but 'their' scale.

HO scale's loss is my gain quite often in that regard!
When I hit the big hobby shops locally, I always look at everything to see if there's anything I might be able to use, original scale intended means nothing to me if it looks right for my scale.
