Hello Happy members,
This is my very first Gnine project.
I'm certainly not the only one making roundy round layouts here, but I couldn't resist trying my hand at such a layout.
It will be built with Kato 183mm curves laying on a 18" chipboard baseboard (found in my personal organized chaos). I also ordered in Japan one Kato 11-103 motorized chassis for building a critter. The engineer is ready to drive it. It's just the beginning.
As it is my very first Gnine layout, a few rules:
1) Rule #1 applies (it's my layout and I do what I want !)
2) I just want to have fun,
3) I like roundy roundy layouts as I like watching trains go past,
4) I absolutely don't like ballasting. That's the reason why I choosed Kato track,
5) I'm not going for realism and I'm not a rivet counter (mostly because I have only 10 fingers I guess)
See you soon !

The baseboard is built. I laid the track and make a try with a Kato 11-103:

This is my Gnew critter. I bought it from ACME. I guess it's a nuclear engine Inside. I'm not really sure because I don't have the owner manual. It also needs some painting work.

Please stay cool. Everything's under control (in fact I hope it's true). This critter is powered by nuclear energy.    :Crazy:
