Good videos, but I think your McDonnel Douglas DC-9 is too small for TT. The lenght of the prototype is >=104ft and the wingspan is >=88ft. Please compare it with the box cars.

I have a tape measure with me, and the wingspan of the DC-9 model is just shy of 9 inches, while the length over all is about 10.5 inches, which makes it about spot-on for TT.

I can post photos of the plane with the measurements if you wish later on.

For the current 3' x 4' layout, I plan to build more agricultural-based structures, such as barns, sheds, and silos. Not to mention BTS station and such as well.

In the first video I posted today, of the setup walkaround, there is a DC-9 mixed in with the 1/120 Lionel trains.

Ah, got it.
BTW there are a lot of 1:130 scale planes available, I think they can work for TT.

I sure think that they can. In fact I have a 1:130 C-130 kit somewhere.

Then I was wrong. It looks so small.

I have a DC-7C in 1:122.

That is no problem.

At least it isn't "but this is N scale!".
