I got it from Invertrain...it's supposed to be 0 gauge, but it looked far too small. I think it looks fine for 00.

It’s very big for OO. In OO scale it should be about 1 3/4 inches high (10ft ish) Does look good.

Size does matter, then?

Yesterday evening a complaint was received from Mr Court (he of Court and Son) that he couldn't get proper access to his Nissen hut to enable him to move his tractor in and out in a safe manner.

So, on the promise of being paid treble time and working overnight, the track crew lifted two lengths of the existing trackway and replaced them with a slightly curved section, thus moving the front portion of the track closer to the edge, giving Mr Court much improved access for his tractor.

Hopefully, Mr Court is now a happier man.

Well done - avoid litigation at all costs Some tractor he has there.

On a serious note, be careful about stock falling off the edge closest to the camera. R-

It has since been discovered that Mr Court has "friends in high places", so when he says 'jump' you ask 'how high?'....

The tractor is a Danish (I think) Unlimited class pulling tractor called "Green Fighter", and powered by three supercharged Allison V12 aircraft engines. A bit of a monster...

Yes, I'll have to come up with something for that...maybe a fence, or something along those lines.

I have some perspex along the edge of my layout where the track is near the edge. Only an inch or so high.
