That's basically the same set I used to build my Life's a Beach Railroad except that mine didn't have a tender. I've built a couple of layouts using this set, but had not made any modifications other than repainting. I've considered doing one with a modified loco and maybe building some more cars. T...

I saw one at a train show a few months ago. It's included in this video. Excellent pulling power and slow speed.

Thanks for the kind words, Andi. I'm glad you enjoyed the layout. :D

Adrian, that's a good idea. I'm considering building some more cars and may need the extra power.

It Works!

I got it to work. Here's how:
- Added weight to the bottom of the caboose
- Reversed the caboose to run cupola-first
- Made a "seat" for the figure

Thanks, Glen and Steve. :D I'm going to try both of your suggestions. The top and walls of the caboose are all one piece, but I'm thinking about converting it into a tender. If I do that, I'll cut it down so the figure will ride lower.

Pizza on a Pie Plate

Seeing all the nice layouts on this site gave me some inspiration to start my own. The layout is built on a plastic pie plate. The train and track are from a toy Christmas Express train - they are roughly TT scale. http://lh5.ggpht.com/_GVzZKZBExE0/Sd_H1dCAFRI/AAAAAAAACA0/gWYCWUaqw7g/s800/DSC04827.J...

Jon, thanks for posting about the track. :o As for the layout/cat ratio, at my house, the layouts outnumber the felines by about 2 to 1.

Colin, thanks for posting the diesel design. I could definitely do something like that with my N scale chassis. I really like your Shifting Sands layout.

Thanks for the replies! Barry, I was originally planning to model "real" locomotives, but am warming to the idea of modeling a miniature railway. It would be just like having your own backyard railway - without all the digging! :D Bob, I hadn't thought about the 2-truck locos tracking bett...

Considering GNine

:D Hello everyone. I'm a gnewby here and was just wondering if anyone has built a GNine loco out of larger N scale locomotives, like 4 or 6 axle road switchers. I have a large collection of N scale and would like to use stuff I had on hand.
