Hi All,
I will not be doing any further postings on this ridiculous forum.

That looks very good John. The clumpy shrub at the front on the last pic looks very effective.

What looks good is the lovely impression of space. Sometimes in modelling terms the impression of space can give a boring look, but you have captured it just right where it looks interesting and gives the right feel. I can almost hear a bell going on a passing loco as my imagination takes over!

Nice bit of Minnesota. Haven't been there too often, but certainly captures the feel of the
place. Always a bit of a surprise to see modelers in other countries taking an interest of
other countries. Myself, I rather favor Britain, and I live in desert not unlike Australia's
outback. I'll trade with you.

Hi John and all.
I hope you don't mind but I would like to try out a photo from Flikr which I have just joined after the problems with another photo sharing site.
This is one of my Pennsy locos so it fits in with your U.S. thread.
Thanks Colin.

Hi John.
Thanks for allowing my test and for your comments.
Here's another one for you on my layout.



The year is 2020 or thereabouts and restored "Big Boy"4014 westbound meets with "Challenger" 3985 on track 3 and FEF 844 eastbound at Dale Junction.
Regards, Colin.

Hi John.
My layout is based on Dale Junction on the U.P. main line over Sherman Hill and is set in
the early 50's after track 3 was built to ease the grade over the hill.
The "Meeting" photo would not look like this today as the junction layout has changed !
I chose this date so that I could use steam, Diesel and Turbine power but I do not have any stock newer than say 1960.
I sometimes run European trains on the layout but have problems due to the flanges hitting the frogs on my code 83 points so I usually run them on a "Carpetbahn" or more likely a Kitchen floor Bahn !
As you mentioned Pennsy T1s here is the last photo I will put on this thread which is two of my T1s , As delivered and modified.



Regards, Colin.

Those look good.
They remind me of a friends American 00 gauge locos which are 19mm gauge width. They are made from metal and gosh they are heavy things! Is like holding two Hornby Dublo locos in one hand and then a bit more!
I guess the only problem for most is that they only look the part at the head of a long train of wagons or coaches. Lovely looking locos you have though!
