Great scene, Russell!
Good. Personally, I saw nothing wrong with your picture, and if I recall correctly, you had a very similar avatar photo at one time. Very elegant as I recall.
BTW, you posted a couple of other great photos this week, and regarding the sidewalk discussion, that looks like a place where the city doesn't care too much about the condition of anything. Also must say that there were many, many excellent posts from everyone this time.
WOW I love this ! It's what I like about N scale. You can build big stuff ! Well done !!!! It is N scale isn't it?
Yes, it is N scale on a 20 foot NTRAK module set. I like the challenge of pulling two of the 3 mainlines away from the front of the module and routing them around the back to give the front the feel of a single track. The tracks all return to the normal 3 track spacing at the module end to conform with the NTRAK standard. In this shot you can see much of the 20 foot section. The cotton gin scene above is toward the far end before the tracks come together to go around the corner module.
I think the last car I had an 8 track deck in was a'73 Torino. Definitely not blaring YMCA but more likely Led Zeppelin, Bachman-Turner Overdrive or Deep Purple. Where I came from, seeing 8 track tapes strung out along a fencerow was pretty normal. They didn't always work as planned. One of my friends had a deck that sounded great- as long as you stuck a matchpack in on top of the tape.
That is truly amazing. Nice thing about N is that you can pack a lot of punch into a small area. I've come up with a 4X16 for my HO - sometimes I salivate at the thought of how MUCH layout I could stuff into that in N scale. But then I think about my vision and my hands that aren't quite as precise as they were .. and consider G scale.
