Las weekend I was cleaning the locker in my condominium apartment and guess what ? I found a 50" x 10" piece of plywood. Of course the 1st reaction was: "micro layout" and visiting the Micro/Small layouts website I found the Gum Stump & snowshoe RR Small Layout Scrapbook The biggest problem is that there is a portion of that layout with a ... 8% grade. Could someone please suggest an N scale switcher capable of climbing such a grade ? The 1st enclosed pic is that layout from a Spanish modeler named Ignacio O'Callaghan ( That family name doesn't soun very Spanish lol ) The 2nd pic of the Gum Stump is from a German modeler named Alexander Kaczmarek , it gives a better view of the grade.
