Way back in the "60s" I became interested in the new HOn2 1/2 narrow gauge trains offered by AHM and Egger Bahn.

On the cover of the Egger Bahn catalog, a photo of their diesel with three tipper cars, caught may eye.

Below, you can see my version of that scene, in 1/2" scale. 

One more thing checked off on my bucket list.

The way-back machine is set for the 1960s.

Here we see the inside of the, very brief, Eggar Bahn catalog.

Note the prices.

While were at it, we should take a look at the back cover of the Eggar Bahn catalog too.

Yeah, they had those in those international hobby ads, or whatever it was in model railroader in the 70's.

A big box house that would advertise trains full page with a million things.

Very cute models.

One of my buildings is casting an awkward shadow on the backdrop. This has been bugging me a long time.

Yesterday I finally did something to try and hide, or at least diminish the shadow.
Not perfect, but it is a lot better, I think.

What are you using as a light for that area?

I must say it looks good with the new painted back drop.

My lighting is all LED fixtures, not florescent. Nine of them lite the room.

You could consider adding a couple of clamp lamps from across the room,
and aimed kind of sideways, those could fill in some of the shadows.

The clamp lamps may also bring out different colors depending on what bulbs you use.

When building a layout, have you ever found that things just didn't work out the way you planed?
That has happened to me, again.

I don't draw up any formal layout plan.
A few pieces of sectional track might be laid out to see if an idea will work.
This approach can and does get me in trouble every so often.

In the Big Stone Lodge area,
I didn't leave enough room for a walkway between the track and the table edge.
(photo #1).
