Thanks Kitbash.

I wouldn't know what success is because I get too OCD about things. :P
But yes -- FUN! Gotta keep on that mindset. 

To me it seems like I was too sloppy.

I found some really cheap styrene shapes on that auction site not long ago.
I think it's about 2 - 3 bucks a bundle max.
My first bundle they sent was the wrong thing so I got about twice what I ordered.

Now I just need some sheet styrene and I am off to the races.

Hi Traingeekboy, to assist with the visulalisation try this one for size -

a usually 2' gauge loco running on 3'6" gauge from DownUnder.





I have some other 2' gauge stuff from the Aussie cane-fields that might help -

gone looking for them .. back shortly - (hopefully ;) )

Very cute.

And I do like cute locos!

A bit tidy looking.

Mine will be a bit on the rusty and beat to hell side of things.  ;)

Oztrainz,

Love the narrow gauge lines you still have in Oz.
 
Such lines, here in the US, are few and far between.
I am just old enough to have seen these tramway operations go under one at a time.
Underground mining is one of the last bastions of narrow gauge tramway action.
 
Thank for posting your photos.

Larry G

HI all,

If you want rusty and beat to hell try this one.

"Albany's brother", Macknade #17 -
left on a dead line under a tree for several years an then had the tree fall on it when a cyclone (aka hurricane) went past.
And then there was the couple of inches of water in the cab from when the widows were blown out by the cyclone.

That's more like it.

Dirty and it has safety stripes!

Although work interfering with fun, must be persistent and get this model done.
