Larry, I did not do that.

Some kind soul must have done it. Whoever-thanks. Oh, I see it was Si.  Thank you. 

I am still working on posting photos.  I have a sizing problem I have to solve.

Hi Dave, what are the dimensions of your track plan?

Also, what is the min radius of the curves?

You have included a lot of potential operation in a relatively small space.

Larry, I think it was designed for a 3x6 foot area.

Sorry I can't recall the curve's radius, but probably twelve inches is close.
I make the curves fit the area so it is always the largest curve that will fit.
I've been known to vary the radius in a single curve, too.

Regards, Dave L.

You have a very nice stable of locos there. 

Would be nice to find some space on your layout where you could display the whole fleet.

Any thought given to including a run around track in your plan?

Hi David  :wave:



Pleased to help out !  :)

You did understand about the fact that if you want, you can EDIT the text with your photos ?  ???


If you need any advice about solving your 're-sizing' of photos, we may be able to help.  :brill:

This depends a little on what computer & software you have.  L:

But at the most basic level, if you have a 'Windows' P.C. there are several ways that might be possible.



One is using 'Windows Picture Resizer' ...

... which if you have it, will show as an option, if you 'Right-Click' on a photos file icon ...

... it would then ask, to what size ? ...

... & Clicking 800 or 1024 pixels wide, should produce a Postable version, under 0.5 Mega-Bytes in size.  :thumb:


Or


You may have 'Microsoft Paint' on your computer ...

... which if you have, you could Open your photos file icon with it ...

... find the 'Resize' Menu option & again selecting 800 or 1024 pixels wide ...

... should produce a Postable version, under 0.5 Mega-Bytes in size.  :thumb:



Don't worry about just 'Having-A-Go' on the photo Posting !  :w:



It is basically impossible to do anything 'wrong' ...

... & at worst, if the result isn't to your liking ...  :f:

... either you, or Freerails, can Edit or remove any Whooops ! moments.  :P







Nice to get you get your eMail again BTW !


I gotta say David, I think your trackplan looks AWESOME !  :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:

I love the way you've managed to get everything 'un-parallel' & have all those DIAGONALS to look at !



N  I  C  E  !   :!:



It looks as though you have enough of everything to be interesting for operations & scenery ...

... but isn't going to be overwhelming to build ...

... & has great possibilities for expansion !



What more could one want ! ?  :cool:



:java::mex:



Si.

David

Years ago I built a model of the North Pacific Cannery for the local MRR layout.
The diorama was 30 Inchs by 6 feet, the length of the box of my truck.

When the plant was making fish meal, you could not smell the Pulp mill I worked in at the time,
which was perhaps 3/4 of a mile from the cannery.

If you google "North Pacific Cannery Museum",
there are 134 photos of the site, interior and exterior on their web page.

Not been back to Prince Rupert for years to see how My model has stood the test of time.
Do have a few photos of construction and also located on the layout.
