I seem to have spent a huge amount of my spare time just lately, on research.
Especialy finding materials & kits suitable for 1:35 railroading...
...which has almost zero commercial support.

Have been looking today at parts & kits from 'other scales' which might work in 1:35.
The UK manufacturers 'Wills' & 'Ratio' for example, have quite a few interesting items...
...which are ideal for 'up-scaling' from OO/HO to 1:35.

I thought I would start at the beginning in the Mysterious Moose Mountain thread with this research.
I hope that this information might be of use to anyone else railroading in 1:35, either now, or in the future.

Have also spent quite a while getting the foundations for the enginehouse right.
The Tamiya walls shown earlier are being doubled-up, for the main foundation.
This new kit is going to be used for an 'under construction' critter-workshop extension to the main enginehouse (pix. to follow).

The Italeri kit is very nice indeed.
Spent all last night 'de-spruing', cleaning-up & experimenting with the parts.
It's NOT compatible with Tamiya bricks by the way.
Very useful for 1:35 railroaders I think.

Oh ... & a MOOSE !

Some things have uses...
...others are just 'mooseless' !
