    Just updated the site with more pictures, I put on the final coat of paint inside and out even though the outside will be covered with siding or stone. The paint on the outside is just for some extra protection. I'm still designing the turntable in my head, first things first, finish the roundhouse.

    Very impressive roundhouse. :thumb: Your garden must be a lot bigger than mine, :D and also snow free. Up here outdoor railways need rotary snow plows about 6 months of the year. :cry:

    Don't know why, but I get a message saying that "Sorry, this GeoCities site is currently unavailable". Got that yesterday and am still getting it. :confused:

    You might edit your first post telling people that all the geocities links are old and will only open to just for men products & to go straight to thread 14 for the good link. I clicked on the first couple links that did not work and almost gave up on the thread.
    Cool project. I can't wait to see it placed.
