Thread: The M-K & Eastern RR

  1. Default The M-K & Eastern RR

    Hi all. I'm currently renovating a room for my layout.
    It's 22' x 16' and will have coved corners.
    My layout will be a freelancer Colorado narrow gauge in HOn3.
    I've drawn the track plans for it, and I can't wait to start building it.
    To prepare, I've been doing some city planning for one of the towns, called Twin Peaks (work name, yet to be decided)

    Main Street, the town will be 8' long.
    The station will be regauged to HOn3.

    The street will go upwards in the back and turn into suburbs.

    You have quite a nice collections of buildings. Looking forward to see the finished town. I really enjoy modeling town scenes, but being that I model a more rural area, my towns aren't very large, but I am currently trying to add as much detail as possible.

    That's a great layout plan! Can't wait to see it come together.

    Anything new with this? The town you were working on looked really good, although the photo looks like somewhere 'out West,' not in the northeastern US. The trackplan looks interesting.

    I know that town. At first I thought it was Cripple Creek, then Victor, but the big "Y" of main streets ruled out CC, and the RR track is on the wrong side for Victor. The church tower on the far left side is what nailed it. It used to be a pretty interesting place to go before they approved gambling there. Now it is just, umm, umm, nothing. Here is another view.
