Bob

Great looking Roundhouse! I'm enjoying the thread. We love trains and pictures here - of all scales.

Thanks John... :) I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying this thread. Scales really don't matter, it's all about model railroading. ;)

It's been two years since I posted any photo's on my layout, the "new" JJJ&E. Hopefully, I'll post some new photo's of the layout. The basic scenery is now over 98& completed and the layout is in full operation for almost eight years now.

Hey Bob, how ya been? haven't heard from you since The whistle post went down, Looks like you are still doing some fine work.

How are you doing Andy? It's been quite a while since we spoke. These are old photo's of the "new" JJJ&E switching yard. You've seen them on The Whistle Post before it disbanded  due to Kevin's passing.

I saw and answered Janbouli's post yesterday about the Modelers Forum on N.Scale.net, so I decided to have another look at the forum. When I started to post here two years ago, there wasn't much going on in N scale. It still looks like HO scale is the scale of choice.

I can deal with that as I modeled in HO scale for close to over forty odd years, before I switched to N scale in 2000.

Good to chat with you again Andy.

Bob,

Tom ;D

Thanks Tom. The switching yard and turntable area is 18 feet long and 30 inches wide. The turnaround in the turntable area is 50"x50". The radii in the turntable turnaround area is 23.5 inches. I used 30 inch radii on the rest the layout which equates to about 60 inches in HO scale.

After eight years of full operation, I'm very satisfied with this layout as I can run trains continuously or from point to point. The layout room is 21'x12' and the layout is an inverted "U" shape.

Thanks Jeff. I was always infatuated with steam locomotives. I also have transition era diesel locomotives and well as some large late diesels that I purchased recently.
