thank's for sharing. I have handlaid track in Ho/ Hon3 on cork roadbed in a pinch. I highly recommend Homabed, with something as labor inrensive as hand laying track, it doesn't pay to scrimp on materials. My layout is Ho, and Hon3, but I do own a Weisman Model Services On3 CN # 60 Shay, and a Bachman On30 Climax with sound, that I intend to spread to ON3. I also have a static On42 (Japanese narrow gauge) brass Porter mogul, that I am searching for a simple Ho mogul that I can re gauge to ON3, which would give me a mechanism for an interesting one of a kind. On3 uses up a lot of space, but I love the detail you can get.
