After a year, Denny has dismantled his exceptional N Scale Coast Lines SP layout in Italy. Here is a link to his videos. We wish him the best. He was a gifted modeler.

I read on N scale.net a while back that a new job and some personal things got in the way. Hopefully he comes back like Eric did!
I WANNA SEE THE BOAT MOVIE!

Hm.

That must have been the source of a lot of well-detailed/painted N scale locomotives from Italy I was seeing on eBay a few months back.

Im just glad his videos are back up as he had taken everything he did online down. He ended up sending the videos to another guy on the internet to post after several requests to put them back up.

Yes, I'm "here"! I'm the "other guy in Internet"....  ;D
Denny is my friend and he copy .... well, "millions" pictures on a DVD and give me.
I've download some video and some pics on Vimeo here in name of him: http://vimeo.com/15774338
Unfortunately Vimeo don't accept Jpg files so I've to plan to open maybe a Photobook account where share Denny's layout pics.
We are the two Italians SP fans!
Myself have in costruction a layout of the SP Coast line, from the City to Santa Clara in 1949. I hope to regain part of Denny interest in the hobby using DCC sound in steam power and operating sessions, so... I've to work on it!
And.. I confirm: it's very hard to proper model a million miles prototype! But Internet give us somuch tools and informations, and more important.... FRIENDS. Just few yaers ago this was unbelieveble.
Have a prosperous and healty New Yaer to all.
Cheers

Enzo - where in Italy do you live .. I used to spend a lot of time in Napoli when I was in the Navy ..

My favorite is Tirol area


edit - I found it .. You live near Milano .. I have visited there also .. northern Italy is so much different than the south. Like night and day
