How about a "small" steamship facility,
since space won't be an issue on the perfect layout?

Seriously, if I had the room a small steamer like this would be a fun project. 

I see it tied up at a wharf on the layout, the scene all lit up,
with the boat's interior lights and lights on the board walk. 

A small Gn15 train ready to load disembarking passengers stands ready. 

What fun!! 

Regards, Dave L.

If you have an interest in steamboats I suggest this great book. 

Although it is specific to Maine's Cacso Bay,
there are numerous photos of the vessels and the steamboat facilities for them,
that suggest many modeling ideas. 

The book is available used from Amazon. 

Regards, Dave L.

Since we are talking about the perfect layout with unlimited space (and funds),
besides steamboats, I would find space for a little rural airport. 

Walnut Scale (17.5" wingspan) models would be about the right size. 
Dumas makes appropriate era models for a 1935 scene.

One of my Ford Model Ts could be made into an airplane starter at the airport.

The Lake Tahoe and Transportation Company had a pier extending into Lake Tahoe,
where one could board a steamship for a tour.

Would make a nice scene with the lake and Ponderosa Pine in the background.


Okay, so maybe you'll need a bigger place.

Here's an old photo of a simple Gn15 project. 

The HO tank was a flea market bargain,
put on the flat fashioned from a Bachmann On30 flat car.

Tonight I tried to get some old paint mixed back from a watery slop to real paint. 

I figured that a paper clip bent into shape and put into my cordless drill would do the trick. 
It did not work very well and the paint didn't mix well. 

I suspect that a piece of brass wire flattened at the end would do a better job. 

Regards, Dave L.

I've been repainting and modifying diecast models for the Gn15 layout. 

The Studebaker is 1/25 and the 1925 Kenworth is 1/32 or 1/35 (The box doesn't specify).
It is a nice model and would work well for 1/35 modelers, I think. 

Maybe if I put it in the distance, in the back of the layout, the size might not be so noticeable. 
This was a yard sale find my son found.  He paid a whopping $3.00 for it. 

Regards, Dave L.
