While reading my friend Trevor Marshall’s Port Rowan in 1:64 scale blog recently, came across an interesting link to another Trevor, Trevor Hodges in Australia. He has just started a blog about his P48 layout, Morpeth in O scale (7mm). An excellent job, but must admit I am partial to exhibition style layouts. Check out Trevor Hodges blog to see photos of his exhibition layout and other interesting projects. Be sure to read his “Queens Wharf: Planning Considerations”, Trevor discusses some very interesting thoughts about O scale.
Had several engines and railbuses out for my On2 and Sn2 projects a few days back. So while they were out being measured for length, decided to place a crew in them and on them. Earlier this year, Graham and I attended Howard Zane’s train show in Timonium Maryland. While there, we had the opportunity to pick up several suitable O and S scale Arttista figures for my Forney crews. I have been having trouble with the “larger” gentleman, they need to go on a diet to fit into the cabs of the Forneys, but they may work well in the railbuses.
