Haters will say it's photoshopped.

Do you have plans to use geared locomotives on the layout?  All those pumping rods are nice, but I prefer videos where there are two simultaneous Climaxes.

I have two Athearn 2-8-0s now that are lettered for the D&RGW (on a layout set 16 years before the D&RG was reorganized into the D&RGW).  The yellow scheme, well...that's anachronistic on a million different levels (introduced in 1948 for a single narrow gauge class C-16, #268), but everyone associates that scheme with Colorado, so I couldn't help myself!  It really is quite pretty even if it's even brighter than the aspen trees.

That yellow scheme always looks like something you’d find at an amusement park.

It’s funny, though, because I’ve often heard or read the statement that HOn3 and N scale standard gauge are about the same size.  Um…no?


I get the visual joke, but the track would be HOn2 1/2, which you know.  For those of us who wear the anal cap a little too tight.  Dave great modeling both HO & N.

True enough!  This is primarily for shows.  Most of the time at home I’ll be running CMRy-lettered stuff.

I have been told by people who don’t know any better that the equipment is roughly the same size as well.

Love that top photo.

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

Depends on the equipment.  An HOn3 30 ft boxcar would be about the length and height of an N 60 ft auto parts car, but half again as wide.
