Following the progress of Jerry M. layout has inspired me to get back to some landscaping on my layout.

I would like to build several wooden tunnel portals. Can someone share some pictures, plans and dimensions that might work in our 0N30 world.

I had some plans but they are safely stored away ... somewhere ..

Apparently the vertical posts seem to be 12 x 12, Pat.

Thank you for the last pic, Louis. It looks like it should be a pleasant and not too difficult scratchbuild project. Besides it's quite unlikely that the kit as designed by Hunterline would exactly fit the room I have.

Frederic thanks, glad the pictures helped. HunterLine has a snow shed; http://www.hunterline.com/ but here his is picture if you want to build one like it.

Found these two pictures:

Louis, thank you for posting the sheds pictures. I'm just about to redo some of my Sn3 trackwork and there are two places where the rock comes very close to the track and where this kind of shed will help to make a great and interesting scene.

I want to build a snow shed that you can look in through the side. Any good pictures out there?


Here are plans for an "N" scale shed, you could resize to your scale. And some pictures to see.

The portals I refer to as Harold's will go on the outside track of the layout. Between the two I want to build a snow shed that you can look in through the side. Any good pictures out there?
Geezer Posted - 03/13/2009 : 05:42:16 AM
Tom!! You nailed it! They look really great, especially the tunnel approach/exit inside.
Very nice craftsmanship!

Fantastic looking build on both style portals Tom. Nice work!
