Very nice set of goodies, Scott. I'm looking forward to see how you put them together in one of your great scenes.

Getting close to complete with the major structures. Finished the bridges and a little chicken coop. The pictures illustrate the general locations proposed. Once a few other structures are complete I can focus again on finishing the scenery and circle of track. Scott

Very quick update on my "Wedding Cake" Desert Scenery project: However, not much to post. I have been down with a leg injury and recently ill with a cold. Started working again on the track today. I decided to try something inexpensive (read cheap). Instead of the $8 per 3-ft micro engineering On30 flex track or the Peco flex track, I have taken some $3 HO-scale flex track from Atlas, painted and weathered, removed some ties and plan to move on from there. For you On30 newbees out there looking for an alternative to using regular HO-scale track for On30, or the more pricey alternatives, this is a nice option. The following picture shows a before and after result once having removed some ties. Since it is narrow gauge, you can make anything work with a little imagination. Hope to share more next week (more rock work and track laid. Until then..........

I am having trouble laying the track. The radius needed is around 16". I thought the track would curve easier without the ties. The opposite appears true. I walked away after popping some ties and bending track. Will try again on Saturday. If this does not work I may have to and lay rail. Scott

Hey Scott when removing the extra ties, don't romove the plastic where it is under the rail. Just snip the ends and middle peices. This will allow you to bend the track better.

Good information! That makes sense now that IK think about it. Unfortunately a week to late. Hopefully, someone else can learn from my mistake. Thanks. Scott

Scott, looks like a good excuse to make another project to me . . Not that anyone needs one.

Scott,

Want to thank you for posting your "mistake".. I was just thinking about doing the same thing with the Atlas code 83 flex track I am using.. Will keep the plastic under the rail as suggested by others...
