S Scale Narrow Gauge Modelling

No 462 is in the process of switching.
The next few Wordless Wednesday's will be of Bill Scobie's Sn3 version of RGS North. Bill lives in Alymer, Quebec across from Ottawa and has been modeling narrow gauge for a long time. On a visit this spring Don Janes and I had a really nice time operating his layout. It was really interesting for Don and I to actually operate the same train. Double heading Don ran the lead engine while I was the helper cut in a few cars back working hard to get us over the ruling grade....George Dutka

"Franklin" Based on Maine Narrow Gauge Ry - On2

A look at the roundhouse area of the modules.
At last September's NNGC there was a nice looking modular layout which was depicting Maine in On2. What I found really interesting was the group brought the layout with them from England by plane...a real feat I would think...enjoy the views...George Dutka

Overview of the Franklin station area.

There was a lot packed into this display module. I don't recall the length but I would think it was 12' at the minimum.
Some great looking rolling stock and the track work was also done nicely.
