Hello. I'm new to this forum. I model the railroads of the Pacific Northwest centered around Spokane in the late 40's and early 50's. I also build cars from old used cars. Mostly rolling stock that is not readily available in N Scale and then sell them. My layout is in my home and is 11x13 around the room design.

Hi Marty! Welcome to the forum! There's lots of great information and quite a few great people here! I'd love to see some pictures of your projects! I love the roads in the second picture...what did you make them out of?


Stay off the tracks!
That is a very nice street scene. And pretty good looking crummy too - I can't contemplate working in N scale - everything is too small!
