1/29 vs. N

I was about to start a new 1/29 project when I remembered that I did a similar hopper in N scale.  I took it out for a quick size comparison:





Pardon the quality of the photos - I don't have a good place to photograph the large stuff yet. :tommann:

Good looking hopper. Is that Aristocraft or USA trains?

Damn I want to do 1:29!

You have decent size layout room and haven't put down any N scale track.  There is still time to go BIG!  :trollface:

Damn Tom, I didnt know you did any 1/29th stuff at all.

If you ever need any fodder to work your magic on, hit a brotha up!  1/29th is my primary scale....mostly modern era stuff, prolly over 100 pcs of rolling stock and like 12 locos by now. 

Hell my layout shows up on google earth...haha :D

And Ian quit your bitching, you have a yard...GET TO IT!

A crop of trains is a far better harvest than a crop of grass clippings.

Oh, I dunno. I'm with Ian. I find that a neat lawn and the process of getting it there is very zen.

However - full disclosure here - the lawn surrounding our layout building affords the opportunity to do satisfying yard work and watch trains. I must've seen at least four trains in the roughly one hour spent overseeding the other day, including a rare same-direction pass. CN was busy.

I've got a bunch of gravel with nothing else going on so I don't even need to sacrifice grass.  It's choo-choo time!
