Introduction with photos

Greetings!!

My name is Joe Lavender and I'm a Z scale enthusiast. If there was a 12 step program for Z scale I'd probably be in it. Ha!  My main focus is the often overlooked N&W in WVa and southern Ohio.  Model what you know right?

I also do custom weathering, detailing and even craftsman style kit construction for anyone interested.  I don't want to give too many details because I don't want to violate any rules. I'll wait patiently for privileges to post in the Sales section. 

Here are some photos of my little layout:


























Thanks for looking!

 :|        Joe, As a N Scaler who has always been interested in even smaller scales Zed ('Z") "T-Gauge" etc. your work looks wonderful. I really like your weathering, the N&W Box car on the weathered trackage is very nice. What percentage of your layout is finished? (are they ever finished?).Nate Goodman (Nato). Salt Lake, Utah.

Thanks for the kind words guys,

The layout you see here is mostly finished but a larger N&W layout is being planned.  I am moving soon so I don't to get started just yet obviously.  I'm not much into operation and I like to build and detail so the next layout will be more about visuals and views than anything else.

Joe,

I keep going back and looking at your photos. They layout looks great! I love your attention to detail and scenery touches. Very nice!

Very cool on modeling the N&W in Z!
