and photo gallery
. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.
I suppose if one were into modelling large ships in 1/450 scale, T gauge would make it possible to include a working train in a diorama. But if modelling trains themselves is the point, I'll stick with S gauge.
It's good to know these aren't being transferred into cyberspace in vain. More pix have been reloaded as of today; the 2006 TTOS Convention in Costa Mesa. The 2008 NTS pix have also been reloaded.
There are just a couple pix still missing. They will be reloaded as soon as I can...
Aaaaaaand... the mystery of the Great File Dump of 2015 remains unsolved. Nevertheless, all images for Rail Road Days 2012 have been reloaded.
I've gotten a few more images reloaded. Still no response from the site about the reason for the image dump found last August (2015).
Prop blades for wind turbines, I take it.
Veeeee-ry interesting shot!
The layout is 2-rail AF and yes, that Marx flat has been converted to S gauge. Glad you enjoyed it!
And for some reason, the original pix disappeared from this entire thread. Restoration is now complete! :rolleyes:
Well, it appears that ALL the photos in this and the tinplate thread have disappeared!
My apologies to anyone I've sent here recently. I don't know why the photos have disappeared.:confused:
Reloading has resumed as of 12-4-15.
Finally, I now know what it's like to go through a Marx tunnel! :cool:
Lastly, a couple views of the city, circa May, 2012.
Still lots of work to do here, but there has been one noticeable change; the far building (partially obscured in both of these shots), which is the "C+D Headquarters", located right in the midst of Horse Shoe Corner. The old building was a...

" 'K, should I push the button now, or wait for the train to show up? What if the train doesn't stop in time? There would be a big mess! But if I don't wait, I'll never...
"Did you see that? It MOVED! That cow MOVED!! Didn't it move? I think it moved."
"Yeah, it moved..."
Happy 4th, everybody!!
We're not sure what was going on in the mind of the visitor at center. He seems to be looking toward Bossy, perhaps disapproving of... something. Bad Bossy technique? Bossy line too long? We can only guess.
Maybe it had to do with the rowdy, disorganized rodeo going on...
Speaking of "eye level" views, this gate op is determined to get a realistic view from the station platform. It's a good thing we glued down those people.
This guy was doing what I wish I'd had time to do; take eye-level shots of the city. There were many cameras being wielded (not even counting phone cams), and the C+D System was thoroughly "hosed down".
I wonder how his shot turned out...
