    Heres some pictures I found from my N scale layout that I had started a few years back. Some are crude and the detail and workmanship are no way up to Tyson's and everyone elses. Most were taken in my apartment before the big move to a house I bought(now the ex owns)
    This first picture is the whole layout. The small leg to the left was all that survivede the "Big Move" and was incorparated into the BIG layout.

    My first two attempts at painting and lettering my own rolling stock. If I remember right, the SW1500 was an Atlas with a Kato drive.

    The only picture I could find of the BIG layout. The two bridges in the foreground were saved from the BIG move. The road bridge is actually a Atlas, converted.

    Wow, what a difference a little Woodland Scenics material does for a layout. (or are your artistic talents beginning to assert themselves?) For whatever reason, I like the improvements. :D

    Here are a few pictures of my layout that I am in the process of building.

    N-joy,

    Upguy stole the words out of my mouth. Your work certainly improved with a little knowledge! Nice series of photos.

    Thanks guys....It was a great little layout.
    The stuuf I learned "Redoing" the N scale has helped with my HO.
    Sorry RI I think Sir Prize has them now. I sold a lot of the NScale stuff to him, that is the stuff I got back from the BIG "D".(and I don't mean Dallas)

    You gave her your dog????

    All I got was my truck and tools, and if the tools wern't in the truck I'd a lost them too.:) :) :) :D

    I guess thats why trains are better than women.:D :D

    I hope you get to rebuild every thing that you lost. I have actualy gained when I got remarried. She kinda sorta likes trains too. Her daddy had a lay-out while she was growing up.:D :D :D
