      I've done a few, tedious but doable, mine are all code 332 aluminum so no soldering is needed

       

       

       

       

      You say I have issues ?

      Aww come on Rooster, building track work is challenging fun, populating a box cab with rivets is just mind deadening !

      Stan your work looks great, that you are using more to scale rail makes my attempts look toy like !

      interesting challenge.  what are the gauges? 45/32?

       

      Dev, I've asked twice more after you, and we still haven't gotten an answer....

       

      I was at first thinking F standard / narrow, but now guessing G/O. Maybe we should place bets?

      I thought Stan had answered but he has elsewhere here it is 

      "The railroad is 3 foot narrow gauge on 45 mm track which is 1:20.32 or Fn3.
       
      F scale Standard Gauge runs on track which is gauge of 70.69 mm.  The dual gauge turnout supports both track gauges ."

      I model in F Scale so the gauges are 70.6mm for standard gauge and 45mm for 3 ft narrow gauge.

       

      Here's the answer as to what gauge Stan uses.  Page 1.
