Super stuff. So much realism is possible in the small details when you model in 'O'. Hymek would look much nicer with a brown and cream coach though 8-)

I miss my N gauge layout. Was debating the other day whether to salvage the individual elements and rebuild something more suited to the space I have in the new house.

Nice, but ruined by the black line round the bottom of the building and the shiny clothes of the figures. Cloth don't shine and buildings are IN the ground, not ON it.
Sorry, but I am very fussy about scenery!
That's why I keep it for myself only.

That really is very good. Better than anything i have done so far by a long way

Bit of matt varnish on the people and some effect to cover the scenery/building join but that's a tiny 'critisicm'

I love O Guage but you need some serious space to run these

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I love it Chris, especially the brick station building and the little people.
Thanks for posting.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

No railway content, but O gauge (1/43rd scale) nonetheless.

Done in a couple of evenings when I was missing my estuaries.

O-scale is where it is at (well for me anyway). I've enjoyed these photos. I'm going down to a model train expo in Portland, OR next weekend.
