Thanks for explaining what you are doing. Good to know someone who's written lots of books on real railroad operations. I'm following you on Twitter now...

I have no intention of digitizing switches, right now all I have is DC to run my starter set. My 1st real locomotive is being repaired (waiting for parts from Germany).

Anyway, your article on switches was interesting, I read Google translate's rendition of it. I see you've tested many European designs as well as building your own switch machines.

Where I am (Hawaii) Tortise switch machines are most common; I've heard they are reliable. However they cost $15.00 each.

Which article are you referring to? Maybe, there is some confusion with another author. I wrote a number of railroad textbooks but no comprehensive article on model railroad switch machines.

Just returned from a week of wilderness camping.

Oh no! Reviewing my internet history, apparently I ended up here somehow: http://www.stayathome.ch/weichenantriebe.htm.

I need to at least plan my buildings for Stromallee, but I'm finding it surprisingly hard to get materials that are properly 1:120. There's some brick sheet at 1:100 from Slaters, but I can't find anything for roofing. Even the doors and windows I can find from Auhagen are 1:100.

I'm thinking of drawing up my own for laser cutting, but that's not suitable for producing corrugated material or tiles for roofing- at least not for this beginner.

Does anyone know of a supplier of 1:120 raw materials, perhaps from the 15mm wargaming fraternity?

John Harmon has a large amount of TT scale die cast windows, and door frames from the Larry Sayre connection. He has been selling on Ebay, but will probably sell direct. His paper buildings are still out there too.

Finally my mother in law purchased for her own hobby a Scan&Cut machine, yesterday I had a chance to make my first trials. It works fine also on heavy paper.

KB model sells corrugated material for roofs, but I cannot find his www page in English version.

I bought some of those paper buildings from John. He was selling them in "bulk" quantity, so got many extra kits. Just ask if you need those.

JP: What specific buildings do you have from John's paper craze days? I had several of the Skyline and Ideal originals in OO scale and built up as 3D models on plastic backing, interior lighting, they were very good models. John
