Wonderful! Impatiently waiting for further work!
Excellent work. The weathering on the portal looks great!
I certainly agree! Summer is coming soon, so we'll be happy to see your next topic, the layout!
The East Portal will be at the Z scale Convention in Denver
All the Best!
Please take plenty of pics for those of us that will be there in spirit!
It would be the bees knees if you could make the door that opens and closes.
Sorting through old posts. And this is where my East Portal ended up. Stay healthy! Hans
Super work! That looks 'Grande!
An amazing shot!! Impossible to tell that this is Z-scale!!
Looks wonderful !!
All magnificient D&RGW, SP, UP or BNSF AZL locos must feel at home on this layout !
BTW, Hans, could you show us here your layout's trackplan ?
And which brand are the turnouts ?
And same question for the trees...
Trees are from Loren Snyder among others. Have to come back to the thread with the source of the switches. We have built 3 interchangeable scenery sections for the small layout. Approximate layout enclosed
Very nice work. What is the scenery height here? 18 inches or so? It's incredibly deep for most any scale. The tall mountains dwarf the trains. The tunnel at lower left in the image above has the feel of Tunnels 35-37 in Gore Canyon. The scenery is plausible for just about anywhere on the Front Range.
I believe Fasttrack switches and Atlas track were used.

Oh, man, those photos are sweet! I loved the Rio Grande SD45s the best.
I agree. One of the German companies makes a slow motion solenoid that would be a perfect driver.
It would be great to see the post-breakup Rio Grande Zephyr, still looking like the CZ, pulled by DRGW E units.
Yes, we used Fasttrack jigs for the turnouts and Atlas flex-track. Photo: Very early stage of construction.
