@ Ishie, I will make one in 09 and upload it Cool

@ Pete, My girls love Thomas to, and I also enjoy watching the older ones, as I was telling Ish at 4am on chat, he rolls his eyes when he goes around the track, kids love it. Still need to get Annie and Clarabel for my little friend to pull though...

Here's a few shots of my old coal mine guys!







I found this old kit in a hobby shop, it was behind a bunch of other kits and literally covered in dust, not to mention missing the assembly instructions, so I winged it Laughing

Cheers,

Lorin

PS.It's also lighted and looks very sharp at night!

Hi Lorin,
Looking good.

Fortunately, in my last house I had tons of room, especially in the attic. So my layout was 24 X 32 feet, with a 4 X 4 empty section towards the centre containing a swivel chair and the controls, electric junction levers, signal controls and of course the loco controls.

I did make one big error when I started constructing the scenery, on the left of the layout was a series of large hills, made of plaster of paris and chicken wire, this contained a long tunnel, about 17 feet in actual length. It looked great, until a train I was running decided to derail right in the middle of it. I couldn't get it out, my hand was too big to go through the portal and besides I couldn't stretch to the opening anyway. I sent in another loco to try and push it out. You guessed it. It got stuck as well, couldn't even reverse it. In the end I had to dismantle the whole range of hills (making a hell of a mess in the process) to get at my train and loco..
I can laugh about it these days, but boy, was I upset at the time. Needless to say all future tunnels had a removable top.
Anyway, the point of that rather long explanation is 'Always have access to your trains'. You never know Lorin, Ish, you might win the state lottery and build one a bit bigger than Berlin's.
Unfortunately, I don't think I'll ever have the room, time, or money to build another beast like that one, but I have been notified in my spam mail that I've won the jackpot in the Californian State Lottery. All they want is $100 to forward it on to me. Not bad seeing that I've never even done that Lottery. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing . They must think people are clown s
Oh well, early start tomorrow, its gone midnight here. night all
Pete.

Excellent ... forgive my grammer - a bit tire ...

Also forgot to add ... when you take the pictures Lorin please have enough light, basically natural light will do fine .... no rush on this since we got lots more to do with Scorpion ruins.

BTW. I will present this idea in the Scorpion ruin thread but I am thinking we an have a Canadian session call (working title) ... The Canadian Run ... basically a this train ill carry products that are made only Canada and stop and drop off such products in designated areas.. etc Just idea which we can redefine later...

Hi Ishie,
Not only have I seen that model, I've actually used it in one of my old routes.
Of course, that was a while ago, before our friendship developed so I didn't associate it with you until now.
Nice work Buddie
Catch you later
Pete.
