There will be a huge Gn15 convention and show this Spring,
with over two hundred working Gn15 layouts and a thousand vendors selling Gn15 models, parts, and fittings.

Oh WAIT!! That was a dream I had last night. Sorry.

Regards, Dave L.

PS Are there any Gn15 modelers out there besides Larry G. and Bob R. and me  ??? ?

Dave, your dream must have been fun, until you woke up, then, disappointment.

Your updated layout plan should be a lot of fun to build and operate, I like it.

An on again off again Gn15 modeler.

My Gn15 projects have been in stasis for several years while I returned to HO,
so I could participate in a new model RR club,
which formed in our little county seat farm burg several years ago.

I was the only person who did On30 and the only person who even knew what Gn15 is.

Kitbash, like you, I am apparently the only person in western South Dakota who models in Gn15.
Most of those who have seen my layout, struggle to understand exactly what is Gn15.

BTW, your large scale modeling is very good.
Could you please post a couple shots of the loco shown in your photos?

OK, that makes FOUR of us.

That's a very nice BIG building, Forrest.

Let's get you back to Gn15 and put that silly little HO stuff away for a while.

Regards, Dave

I guess we all think about what if we had unlimited space and funds to make a layout.

Since I've had the sorry task of dismantling many layouts over the years, my own and others,
I am a strong supporter of layouts that come apart easily and can be moved or go to new owners. 

My S. Charles Fish Head Co. layout would be a segment of such a layout. 

Here is my "doodle" of the result. 

Thanks for looking, Dave L.

Since my layout is on the water there has to be a boat yard or facility to service boats.

"Bruggeman Boats" was on my N scale layout and there will a Gn15 equivalent on the Fish Head Glue Co. layout. 

Thanks for looking, regards, Dave L.

This might end up on the layout if I can figure out how to get it under my bandsaw to make a waterline model. 

That's Captain Andy and the crew aboard the "Jerri Ann" fishing boat.

I would make a "bed" to lay the ship on the side
(maybe a bag of lead shot resting on something slippery so it wouldn't jam on the band saw table)
and chop it.

Add a little of tilt so it will not rest straight on the water.

Jose.

That from the N would make a nice scene in G.

Boats and trains somehow go together it seems.
 
The intent if I ever have a Gn15 home layout (messy health is getting in the way of that)
is to have an interchange with canal boats of the UK narrowboat flavor -
narrow gauge, narrow boats, it fits!
