My TT scale equipment is hard at work removing the N scale roadbed from my benchwork, they should have it cleaned and ready for TT scale track in a few weeks :>) DaveB

Hilarious. I like everything about this. Are you going to build that plan you sketched out before?

Hi Mark, I'm going to build it in a smaller room( I'm working on an S scale layout in that larger space) so this layout will be more compressed than that older TT scale Delmarva plan. This room is about 15 feet by 9 feet so there will be less things modeled. I'm still drawing up the final plan and will post it when I decide on the placement of a few features.....DaveB

I posted a drawing of the smaller "Skipjack" layout that I'm starting to build in the gallery. ...DaveB

That's a pretty good size layout for TT Dave. Not a bad design.

I like the ruler. Hard to see what the smaller markings are. I could make one of these on the CNC machine.

Hi Bernd, It's by Coastal Engineering, 6 inch long. I think t's etched stainless steel. The long marks are one foot ,the mid size are 6 inches ,and the short ones are 3 and 9 inches. I'd prefer a longer version with just one foot markings and with a divided into smaller increments foot at the beginning( like engineer's or architect's rules) The 3 inch divisions all the way across make it harder to use.....DaveB

Ok, I see. It's kind of like the ruler put out by General #1251 with the HO, S and O scale on one side and other info, inch scale and MM scale on the other. I'll have to see if I can engrave something similar now the I have engraving cutters. Oh, oh. :o Another project. :shock:

Cool layout. And not small :) And I LOVE the 24" min radius!
