The worst thing you can do to Russ is egg him on.

G'day all,

I added some details (only 2d-print, no 3D-prints Grin) to get a better impression if the arrangement will match my idea of this micro-layout. I already spotted some things/details I'm probably gonna change converting this mock up into a real micro-layout ...





Cheers

Looks like it will be a fun little build.

... you bet! Cool



A last impression of the once again modified mock up made from gray cardboard and prints ... now I''m gonna start with the conversion. No need to poke fun at the door knob which is located far to low Grin ... the door wasn't printed to scale (just for illustration purposes) ...

Gerald,

the room above the left entrance looks a bit strange, as flat as it is?

Cheers,
Volker

Sorry, that my mock up left space for misinterpretation, but that's not an entire room but only a kinda additional rooflight/fanlight/skylight (don't know usual term in english), similar to a dormer window, letting in (more) daylight ... comparable to the ones often used at workshops and industrial buildings with single pitch roofs (rooves) ... example

Cheers

Happy Easter!

There are many prototype railways with 10.25" (260 mm) gauge. I'm always interested in corresponding building reports, actually this one over at the Buntbahn Forum heavily attracts my interest. I simply could no longer resist and built a small wagon in 1/16. This wagon had to be a little bit smaller than the ones I built recently with a prototype gauge of 430 mm. It is supposed to run on 16,50 mm (16,25 mm) gauged track, representing 10.25 gauge. Therefore I mounted an additional rail (between the two present rails) on my test section to get the necessary gauge of 16,50 mm. Rails, track and radius match prototypes. I eventually put my hospital supply railway layout on hold and gonna use my actual micro layout building a ridable (miniature) farm railway in 1/16 scale with a prototype gauge of 10.25" ...
 
Cheers

Thanks, Ray! Just my humble attempt to catch the spirit of an agricultural tramway on private property ...

BTW: Does anybody know a source for wheels (approx. 9 mm diameter, approx. 4 mm width) suitable for feldbahn purposes?
