    Welcome to the No Way Railroad!

    Have a trip on my Swedish N scale railroad, at present sadly stored at the attic :( I´m rather content with the pictures (and the Photoshop jobs too - cheating...

    Anders - Just visited your web site and loved it! Especially the "history" of the place - you must be having fun making some of that stuff up!

    Yes, I´ve found that making up the story is half the fun of creating a little world-of-my-own like this.

    Things pop up while you´re sitting working with models, putting people in places or into houses: "Oh, yes, I´ll be damned - this must be Mr Svensson the milkman, waiting for his mistress to show up". And so on.

    As I said - it´s half the fun of it! :D

    Anders,
    I just got back from an excursion to No Way. I was offered a free invitation and, being Scottish, how could I resist it? .. :)

    Didn't see the railbus but I would have waved to grandma if the opportunity had arisen.

    It was such a pleasure to admire the skill with which you have put the whole thing together and your humour is so enjoyable.

    Thank's for the invitation, I just hope more enthusiasts take up your invite. Congratulations on a fine layout and tale of wondrous goings on up there.:)

    Anders,

    Terrific work! Your historical content makes the whole thing come alive!

    I've been seriously pondering a shelf layout for my Next Big Thing, and have been looking around for inspiration and ideas. It's kinda ironic that you showed up just now!

    Thanks again!

    -Rory

    Thanks all for your great feedback - I think that was just what an unfairly treatened little layout like this needed!

    I will probably bring it out from the attic long before I get retired, but i need to move to a larger home first - one of the reasons for sending the layout to imprisonment, was that I got annoyed of it occupying too large areas of my living room. Space is a common problem among moder railroaders, isn´t it? :confused:

    Anyway, I´ve just started finishing the electric (accumulator!) shunting loco type Öd, shown at the bottom of the "Rolling stock"-page. So I am - to a limited extent - back in business again!

    I´ve just taken a ride at the Four Sisters Branch railyard - love the buildings!! :)

    The theory that smaller size will cause smaller headaches, is probably very very right...

    Cheers!

    Anders,
    Thanks for the compliment on the structures...they're are all modified plastic kits.
    Once again, I must pay you sincere compliments on your own work! I especially liked the church falling into ruin!
    This is my favorite site on the web, & with your arrival, it just got a little better!
    Welcome!
