A list of N scale layouts on the web
« on: August 29, 2014, 11:42:10 PM »

A few years back I setup a google blogspot to act as a listing of N scale layouts that are on the web.  In opening the blog I did an interview with Gustav Chatterjee and his Wrightsville Port.  Since then the list has grown quite well.  Its main purpose is to serve as a list link with an occasional interview with the listed N layout owners. 

It has been awhile but I did a little housekeeping on the Nlayout.blog list today.  Surprisingly there were only 3 dead links.  I learned that one of our friends (Dwane Ward) had discontinued work on his layout.  I really enjoyed watching his progress.  I look forward to Dwayne’s return.   Also learned that Rick’s (Rick never gave me his last name so I assumed that is the way he preferred it) SP Cascade layout is a dead link.  A layout known as the Alligator lines was another of the dead links, if you know what happened to any of these perhaps you could contact me with an update, especially if it was just a move to an new web address. I would appreciate your help.

If you would like to help with the list

Some of my friend on the list have added the nlayout.blogspot.com list to there link list.  I hope those of you who have Nscale layout blogs and web pages will consider linking to it and encourage others to do the same.  Since its inception it has never been anything but a N scale layout navigation resource.

If you are not and want to be included
If you would like to be included on the N scale layout list, Please send me your name and your layouts name with it’s web address and I will add it to the list.   contact crf250x04@yahoo.com

Another modeler who passed away recently is Jamie of Lilburn, GA.
His layout is the CSX Dixie line.  As of now it's still up though.

Thanks Allen
I didn't know of Jamie's passing
Here is a quote from his blog.
"I am truly thankful that the builders of these miniature empires have shared their ideas and techniques to allow others such as myself to realize our own dreams."

Are links to Railwire threads suitable? Killashandra has its largest presence is here on TRW.
That being said, are narrow gauge and overseas-prototype layouts welcome?

I sent in my submission via email.
I like the idea behind it, so hopefully it works out well.

I dont want to turn this into a memorial but I stopped reading  Trainboard to conserve my small amount of personal time. I totally missed Jamie's passing. His layout was truly a great work in progress and to say I had a few conversations there with him as it progressed. Even though it is a year and a half later I am still shocked by the knowledge he is gone. RIP Jamie Schatte.

Also learned that Rick’s (Rick never gave me his last name so I assumed that is the way he preferred it) SP Cascade layout is a dead link.
Joe,
That was Rick Daniels, who also passed away on July 10, 2013.  Another noteworthy individual and layout that showed some real talent from our community. 

RIP my friends.

Jeff Thank you for the update on Rick.
Because this is a lifetime hobby for many if not most of us I guess I just go on thinking our friends will be there forever.  I tend to forget that we all are appointed an end.  I hope that our departed friends got a good final run in.

Hi Joe, I have changed my site to the following location  http://www.lnrrknoxvilledivision.thejohnnos.id.au/
I felt the name of the layout needed to reflect what I am modeling.

The old link is still active for now and it does link to the new site.

Regards
Greg Johnstone

Hi Gang
I have continued to ad layouts to the N layout link list.  It has over 70 N scale links. 
If you are starting a new layout in 2015
Consider recording your efforts and sharing them in a blog and of course let me know so I can include it on the list.

If you would like to help with the list
Some of my friend on the list have added the nlayout.blogspot.com list to there link list.  I hope those of you who have Nscale layout blogs and web pages will consider linking to it and encourage others to do the same.  Since its inception it has never been anything but a N scale layout navigation resource.

If you are not and want to be included
If you would like to be included on the N scale layout list, Please send me your name and your layouts name with it’s web address and I will add it to the list.   contact crf250x04@yahoo.com
