I seem to remember seeing both pictures and an article from someone who had designed a Roger's Pass - Winter scene in n-scale.

Has anyone ever done similar - winter scene?

I was really fascinated when I saw that article and the pictures way back in around 2001/2.

If I can find some space in my bungalow - I really would like to look closely at devising a winter scene in n-scale and with North American railroad stock and scenery etc.

Would I need much space? Is it a costly experience?:(

Any tips greatly appreciated.

Thanks

There's a good article in the Jan/Feb 2007 issue of N Scale Railroading on doing snowy mountain passes.

CP-Fan If you need much space??? Don't think so if you see these pictures....neither would it be expensive.
Just watch overhere: http://www.1zu160.net/galerie/frank.php
This small Layout was built by frank Thomas/Germany..the snow is as white as in the USA orrrr Scotland;) no difference...
I think you choose a very difficult theme( snow, freezing cold) to model in N( or any scale..) but if you manage the skills to make/model snow and ice in scale N it's going to be a great layout!!!

Jos from a place where snow is very rare since the last 2 years:mad:

The only "winter" experience I have was in putting together a small diorama for the December photo contest. The whole project only took about 1 1/2 hours to complete. I was surprised to find how easy realistic, wind blown snow could be done with baking soda. Keep in mind, the "snow" on the diorama wasn't bonded in place.

I think a frozen high mountain pass would be an awesome addition to a layout! Be sure and post pics if you decide to tackle the project.

That snow looks GREAT! Unfortunately, since it's loose, it probably wouldn't work very well for a permanent application :(
