    I'm interested in seeing some really nice looking N-scale layouts but I'm not sure where to find a good amount of pictures of them. A few members of this site had some nice pictures of their layouts in progress but I would love to see more.

    Is there a website or a place on this forum where people post their nice layout pictures? Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. Thanks. ;)

    ATSF_Arizona's Santa Fe Peavine Line

    Hi, all, as of January 2, 2005, here's a synopsis of the little 4' x 4'x N scale Santa Fe Peavine Line.

    You can see more at: http://home.comcast.net/~j.sing

    To get a perspective, here's what the layout looks like from the living room:

    [​IMG]

    The Glendale Junction module is an attempt to use diagonal arrangement of
    lines-of-sight to optically distract from the small size of the module.

    Here's an angle shot:

    [​IMG]

    As I tinkered with the track plan, I dreamed up the idea of two fairly good size
    buildings to act as:

    - View blocks to track entering/exiting the Glendale Junction module
    - Give some 'heft' to the scene, i.e. have the buildings appropriately overwhelm
    the trains a little - i.e. a little bit of visual illusion trickery

    A view that shows the the Glendale Junction module overhead:

    [​IMG]

    Another view of Printing Company:

    [​IMG]

    How the Ice House relates to the layout:

    [​IMG]

    And a view of the 'Prieta Canyon' module, the other half of the layout:

    [​IMG]

    Model photography can really fool the eye, the following shot, one of my favorites,
    is taken from the stream bed in the previous photo, looking up at the Kato locomotive:

    [​IMG]

    And here's another view that fools the eye in terms of the small size of the layout,
    this one taken on the Glendale Junction module looking right at the overpass area:

    [​IMG]

    The layout is approaching some semblance of the original concept that was
    developed in August of 2002.

    Next up, after finishing integrating the two buildings into the scenery,
    will be to build a couple removable cosmetic 'scenery caps' to
    hide the unsightly dividing line which looks like a San Andreas
    Fault between the two modules.

    Take care, all!

    Here's some pics of my N scale layout. There's a fair number more N scale photos at my web site at:

    http://home.comcast.net/~j.sing

    I've also done a photo treatise on the now-dismantled Dave Salamon Deep River Southern N scale layout at:

    Hope this helps!
