Sounds like a perfect Simplicity Sidings clone. The multi track part is inside greenhouse, and the "traverser" is out in the garden.

Jeff,

I live in the St. Louis area as well and posted a few pics of the WF&P here a few years ago. Great little ride, especially in the fall.

Thanks for fixing it Gerry. I was really curious to see David's critters as I do not seem to recall having seen those particular ones before.

If you follow the prototype rules of thumb for height/gauge it may technically be too tall, but to me the proportions look good, and the loco does not look to tall. Good work.

We all know that the only reason Steve sells Gn15 kits is because he needs a good way to recycle the Jaffa Cakes boxes he ship the kits in. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Andi, I really like the look of the layout. Looks like it will be lots of fun to play trains on. However I noticed that you did not include the Belle Lane treehouse. Will this be part of a future module? Andi, maybe someone here can create a wiring diagram for you showing leads and isolations points...

I have not used them in a layout, but they should be able to cast light at least a foot or two. My old computer case had them built into the sides, and they were enough to illuminate the entire case.

Many Miniature Railways here in the US simply use flat cars or gondolas with benches. You can see some pictures I took of one such example here http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?t=5773 You will also see passenger coaches like Michael described. I have a plan to make a 1/6 scale miniature railway ...

No need to feel bad about that, we all make typing mistakes, and I make more than my fair share.

I forgot to mention it earlier, but you have done a great job so far on the crane. Really nice modelling work :!: :!: :!:
