    I've been working on track right now. Putting in a siding turnout and some tunnel track. I will continue with my, Music Box, hill a bit later. More pictures to come.

    I was a bit worn down last night so went looking for the figures you need. There sure isn't much of workers in bibed coveralls in HO or close. A lot of bigger stuff.
    So, I wasn't able to assist you there. Best wishes with your layout. Mine should be starting soon. Found a couple engines I'd like. But, it will be simple.

    Then after all this is "done", perhaps renewing the bowling alley project?

    Ha ha! While looking for figures I did find HO scale pool tables for the bowling alley.

    This is so frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I keep having to do things over. Now I have to remove the stairs so I can move it down two inches. Maybe this was a bad idea:cry:

    Sometimes I make a Mock-up for testing. I so have to fiddle so much with fitting stuff is why. Sometimes I set the thing aside for a while to clear my head. I scribble diagrams sometimes too. Just some thoughts. I like everything I have seen.

    I'm not giving up. I will figure this out. I have found some interesting techniques on youtube that I think I want to try.

    One of my brothers is a retired architect and we were talking on the phone the other night about this very thing, finding solutions to problems by taking time to pause. I too find joy in quiet thought, sketching, measuring, researching and testing ideas. I'm not always successful, but even in those cases, I find something better than what I began with.

    I used to go for a ride on the Gold Wing and do some camping. I did bring alone a skratch pad.

    Here's one from 'Weekly Special Threads'. And did see a skinny one listed under 'farmer figures' on line.

    I may be getting a handmade Stan and Ollie. I won't have it for a few days but when it comes, I will post them. I hope they're done well.

    Hi Candy, we haven't heard from you in a month. We hope you're OK. :X3:

    BTW, I didn't use the "Royal" we. Just that I believe I speak for all of us who love your fantastic skills.

    Here I am. I got badly sidetracked. No pun intended. My Laural and Hardy are 00 scale. Hardy is 7 feet tall!!!! I think if I keep them away from anything
    that might give away the lack of scale I think I can get away with it. I've just started to get back to work on my hill and house so I will be posting pictures soon.

    Glad to see you back, Candy. I was about to do the wherefore art thou thing...

    Hoping to see your 7-foot Ollie and the rest of the scene as it comes along.
