    I assume you have a Porter? Which one? The radii in this plan look pretty small. Glad to see a small On30 layout being considered. Jim:tb-biggrin:

    I really like those little engines. Their side rods flailing away, makes it seem as though they are doing some serious work. :)

    I watched your run around with the small diesel. What are your ideas for the spur?

    Not at all. There have been 450+ views of the topic. So obviously there is interest. Myself included...

    Well, you basically have an oval with a single spur. I take it that's where the engine shed will go now that you've listed it. That can make for a very nice scene.

    Moving can be very disruptive, especially to model railroading. At least with a Micro Layout, you can usually take it with you, rather than having to tear it down and start over. I've been thinking for a long time that an On30 Micro Layout might be fun to try. Please keep us posted of any progress.
