Just ordered ANOTHER Tamiya 'brick wall set'...
...that makes 3 now !

The 1st was the best bit of injection-moulding I have EVER seen ! (realy).
The 2nd was so 'out of register', flash is not the term; disaster is !

It could be possible to get the parts to fit, maybe; but I think 'the joins' would show... may have to go back to the seller; took a gamble on a 3rd from another seller...
...we'll see how it works out.

The Mysterious Moose Mountain drafting-dept. have started working on pen & ink elevations, for the enginehouse.

Door clearance for the  Shay & Porter were the first issue to come up.
The 2 locos will be 'up-scaled' from 1/4" to 1:35n2 scale.
The cab height will be raised; so Wolfgang doesn't bash his bonce any more !

Took some measurements; & came up with a 'loading-gauge' for the railroad.
Thought about doing a cardboard mock-up, of the extended cab roofs...
...but them thought, Arh ! ... LEGO ! (one of my favorite modelling tools !).

So, here are my Shay & Porter cab-extensions; for now at least !
