I model in N scale, but get the HOn30 bug every once in a while. I was messing with a couple chassis for locos and figured I needed a proper HOn30 layout to run them on
The layout is only 13.5" x 24" and just a basic twice around. Since I was gonna hand lay the track I cut out a 1/8" hard board road bed.
Then I painted it so scenery work wouldn't warp it.
This shows the basic scenery forms:
Them my PC tie order came in from Fast Tracks. It is c55 rail with a PC ties about every inch.
Here I am with a maiden test run:
With that done I got busy with rockwork.
I'll keep posted as I progress.

That's such a great little layout! I'm very impressed with your Porter and Plymouth models as well, especially how well they run. Have you ever considered selling your etched parts? I bet there'd be a few takers.
I'll be looking forward to your next update!

Chris there is a glitch in the forum software that prevents a first post from being edited. Your layout is looking great.

The shots of the layout are very interesting, but I found those of the brass engine wonderful.

They show for me, but Picassa has been acting up lately.
Let me see if I can figure it out.
Well now when I try to edit my first post the box is blank
