My railway club has given members a challenge to build a railway in 300square inches in time for our annual exhibition in November. I've been chronicling progress on my blog
You guys may want to take a look
I'm working on a modular switching layout - the first module is nearly completed: Here is an impression of it:
Ran across this on you tube, drone aircraft for train watching. What a view.
Well today I wrapped up "Ronny's Pawn". I had several issues with the door beginning with some frustrating problems with paints and paint removal products. Later I managed to break some glass. So for the time being Ron has duct taped the broken transom window and when his insurance claim cheque comes he'll get a new door from Tichy, maybe go with a modern door and have some brick work done. But at least the utilities are going in well. Note the manhole cover from VectorCut in the corner of the B&W photograph.
I suspected that there would be some issues with building sections apart from one another. After some judicious cutting and fitting, it seems that things will be looking good. It may not fit in my space, but another inch or two out of my aisle will only affect me. The side benefit of the lone wolf modeler.
I've been laid up with a foot injury of late which has given me allot of time to spend cruising the internet. Having now discovered this forum, I thought I would invite everyone to view my personal blog about my Sn3 exhibition layouts and modeling adventures.

Thanks for your input. Darel
