    The Pembroke & Cheltenham High Desert Railroad: Planning
    I'm having second thoughts about 1:32 scale; it's so hard to find rolling stock in that scale.  1/29 seems a lot more common.  And it's only 10% different from 1:32, so with 1/29 a standard gauge track is only six scale inches narrower than it o...  more
    Request: 7/8ths size vs. 1:29 or 1:24?
    Here's a comparison shot of two Forneys side by side.  Both are tiny locos in real life.  Note that the one on the left is 1:19th scale (I think) so it is about the height of a 1/29th or 1/32nd standard gauge steam engine.  The other is Acc...  more

    Thanks for the input. I should’ve specified that I am using standard gauge ties. I do plan to weather them. In the basement, I spray-painted the completed track with camo brown, and then painted the rails and tie plates a rust color. I won’t g...  more

    Fun with the vinyl cutter
    Looks sharp Bob!   I especially like the looks of the large car number.  The standard gauge trains I model always seem to have long car numbers but in a tiny font.
