That looks really nice Tom.

Unfortunately all the old photos from earlier in the thread have now disappeared! Can you post up some more photos of this great wee layout again?

Thank you. The little layout is very portable. I have negotiated for 3 day weekends this year and hope to get out more to model RR shows.

I hope that as I am getting closer to semi retirement that I could take my micro- layouts on the road to some train shows.

I noticed that the On30 Haiti sugar hauler “Ti Neg la” (Haitian Kreyol for the Little Guy) needed some upgrading.

So I purchased the O scale Banana tree kit from Pegasus models and built up a Banana Grove. This is on the Leogoane side of the layout where are the sugar fields are and the rotgut rum distillery.








In this last picture you can see Green bananas ready for picking.



Thanks for looking.

Rarely does anyone do something notable without help from others. Neil Armstrong took the first step on the moon, but it was the last step in a long journey begun by others.

For most modern technology, North America and Europe have different views on who was the inventor. Another point to consider.

This history is very interesting and I had known there was controversy surrounding the electrical inventions we all take for granted with our little electric powered models of steam engines.

But at any rate I really like the congested look the scene.



I thought TE did the lightbulb and Tesla did everything else including a really cool car.
