    I thought it would be a good use for all those 1" satin pins my mother has lying around. I have a box of 400. That'll help with a lot of fencing.

    TT generally (in N. America at least) is 1/10" = 1' or 1:120. The track gauge is .471".
    England adopted a scale of 3mm=1' or close to 1:100 (actually 1:101.6666) on 12mm track gauge. (nearly .471")
    TT wasn't quite enough smaller than HO (compare S to O) and was zapped by N which really allowed a lot more running in cramped space.

    Winter Vaction -- Deerfield Beach FL

    Having posted a digression, here are some photos from our vacation last February.
    Deerfield Beach, FL (north of Miami) showing Amtrak's Silver Something and the TriRail commuter train.

    (read photos from bottom up!) :confused:

    More great pics everyone! Madhatter, that sanding tower makes a great reference for modelers. Kyle, your use of proto photos as models for weathering yields excellent results! Glen, I have tug boat envy! :)

    Two GP9s with the lead unit oriented long hood first move out to couple with a transfer run to West Mill and the car float.
