    Thanks for the welcome, I found this via Gormo's great 3 link chain coupling innovation. I plan to try that out on my 09 narrow gauge, which is a lockdown project, about 3/4 done so far. The chimney is just placed there to check out positioning, it won't stay at that angle! Most paint needs another layer or two yet. And more trees etc... 12.JPG

    Welcome John. Loving the layout, I think there may be quite a few more getting finished in short order due to the lockdown!!

    Cheers, Pete.

    Welcome to the forum John,
    Your layout looks very interesting and compact.
    I hope the couplings work out for you.

    Thanks Gormo, it is loosely based on the Maple Syrup works (SAP) layout of Carl Arendt, but with more places to stick freight while its waiting for the workers in the factory to accept them. 14 inches squared.
