Hi Charley

Love the little 4-seater excursion-car.
She's the biscuit !!!

Looks like a cool bit of large-scale indoors !

I am trying to draw something for inside at the moment.
Oh I wish everything would go round a 10" radius !

I see the 2ft Gilpin Tram had some 50ft curves.
That's 17" in 1:35 scale.
Not bad !!!

Cheers

Si.

Or a straight switching-layout.
BUT I WANT CURVES !

My new proposed layout space just DOUBLED !
Realy need 2 stations.
& a short run between.
Oh...just TREBLED !

We'll see.
Start small...
...think big.

One day !!!

fellers..

I just searched Yucatan horse / pushcar  / tramways .

I came to this site and this fellow apparently is way ahead of us in this search..as others before him..

Help reading through this site and following links and figgering out other ways to search this stuff is wanted..

Neat fotos and links at this site..

http://www.tramz.com/mx/yu/yu00.html




This is the second foto I have seen of this line through this arch..I think it is about as cool an inspiration as one will find.







And , Si..I recall you saying something about getting them around curves..the half inch stuff i am doing will go around about a six inch radius..curve...widening  the gauge a bit helps dramatically...

Charley,
I absolutely LOVE wazoo engine number 1. It's a tiny green 0-4-0, for me it couldn't get any better. Thanks for great pics.

David , fellers

The Wazoo Island railway was the bailywick of Mr. Beel Wilson...the late...sadly.

He was a great modeler..really quite fastidious..the  layouts  I knew were all quite nice..from 0n30" ..{ before it was cool} to the half inch ..through the 1:32 nd version{S?}..I don't recall..

great stuff right down to the laggin on then pipes and etc...
