" BUT if I were to increase the size a bit ... "


Hi David  :wave:


I remember when you said that previously ...  :old dude:

... you mentioned "increasing the size a bit" would allow building AN AIRPORT !  :shocked:



I'm pretty sure it wasn't for handling 747s ...

... BUT probably might stretch the scope of a "four by eight" a tad !!  :P



I actually think we need MORE 'two by fours', and LESS airports !  ;)


If the Wright Bros. knew about Gn15 transportation ...  L:

... they might not have turned out as a pair of 'Bird Brains' !!  :us:


North America might have had 15" gauge all the way from Chicago to L.A.  :cool:



:java: :clown: :dt:


Si.

Dave,

Would weed whacker trim line work? 

It comes in different sizes and colors. 
Must be a green one out there somewhere. 

You would have to cut to length.

Thanks, Michael.  Great idea. 

I'll tell my son to be on the lookout for some. 

Regards, Dave L.

Any one remember this HO scale pickle factory?

How about E.L. Moore?

Thanks, Michael,

for bringing back memories of those great kits.


I never had the chance to build one of them,

but they were great.
 

Regards, Dave L.

Here is a newer "Peerless Pickles" doodle. 

By extending the layout's length I was able to add an extension loop,
to make room for a processing facility and a barrel factory.

Regards, Dave L.

I like that.

Gives you an extra run-around track if needed.

Now there's a project,

making models of the barrels.


Anyone for a challenge.  :2t:

What challenge?

Merely design 1 barrel,

then let your 3D printer run for 6 months straight.
