I did peel away the rubber rocks, but the trestle just got a karate chop  :P

Haha, I love it. There's a real freedom in doing that.

Although you could always have pulled it out and sold it as a Chris333 Original for $1000.

So the one little coal mine was torn out of another tiny layout I'd built. I stripped off all the trees and anything else that was worth keeping and now it's time for the trash.

I would've burned that mofo and filmed the process.   :D

This is a small 13x44" layout with very sharp curves. I liked the coal mine so I tore it and the surrounding scenery out and plopped it down on the newer 26x60" layout.

Tore it out of here:


And put it here:


The old layout could only handle very small locomotives.

Turnouts are less than $2 to build. Plus don't tell anyone, but neither of those work.  ;)

For reasons I cannot figure out I haven't touched the layout in about 2 weeks now. But here was a craptastic video I took back then.

Love that river scene, you really nailed that one.

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.
DCC is not plug-n-play.

Hey look I did something. Based on a bunch of Class A Climaxes, but totally made up.



It has one of those newer Kato drives under it.

Added a few details and cut my 3D journal pedestals off. Used Grandt Line C&S caboose ones. The journal box lid was a separate piece and well they didn't make it  :scared: so I put part of a NBW casting in the centers.

Just for fun I ran that B&W photo of the mill through the colorizer.
