The forum for "On30 trains" could perhaps be expanded to include "Two-Rail O Gauge, Scale and Narrow Gauge". This is real-life restored original-location 30-inch gauge at Belgrave, near Melbourne Victoria.
The problem with 100n3 is there is a lack of available equipment and mechanisms to model narrow gauge.
The layout measures 143 cm by 73 cm plus a fiddle yard on the left part of the layout of 93 cm by 73 cm (not shows on the photos). I will be able to utilized my fleet of locomotives of free lance locos and true English and german one like the Lister, the Ruston 20 HP and Ransom and Rapier. The layout runs on DCC with an Spectrum EZ Command Control System Dynamis Wireless Infrared System. Not sure how it would work in the larger scale but you could try neat PVA applied as multiple coats over a painted base, with each application allowed to dry before the next is added.
Lochside is O scale, the waves are made by adding filler to the base before painting but you could make the water as still as a mill pond by just treating a flat plywood base. BIG advantage over using resin for water - PVA does not smell nearly as bad while it is drying, so you can do your modelling in the house without upsetting anybody.
You appear to be using the classic three track pointless design, will the fiddle yard be cassette or traverser? I also included a couple of small rowing boats(?) in the scene and the 'water' wrapped itself nicely round. One thing I have found is that I-Glue dries like a latex layer so is a bit more flexible when dry. Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails. I start the layout just after I came back from Midland Railex where I have validate during the 2 days of exhibitions that I can have fun with 3 tracks only and a transfer table.
I have finished the wood beam of the pier, paint the pier in white in order to put snow on it. Frederic writes, “This Z layout really works, thanks to power supply wires in the thickness of the wooden base connected to an electronic single-line shuttle control, hidden in the industrial building. Buildings are scratch-built from Pola kits, tracks and loco come from Marklin, and the boxcar is kitbashed from a Galoob Micro Machines item. Kidmore Gumstump, an excellent N scale version of the classic Gum Stump & Snowshoe Railroad, was built by David Mitchell, from Reading, England.
The rest of the layout, with its familiar overlapped switchback design, fits neatly into a 4x1ft (120x30cm) shelf.
Sharing his 48x15in (120x38cm) layout under construction is Eldon Hoolsema, aged 15 from Jenison, Michigan, USA. Eldon’s scratchbuilt box cab loco (using a Kato Pocket Line chassis) handles the traffic between the Smokey Hollow Charcoal Co. West Egg is a minimum-space layout built as an add-on to a much larger basement layout by John Bruce, from Los Angeles, California, USA.
The resulting layout measures 48x22in (120x56cm) and includes an interesting block of business buildings that fit around (and hide) the post (in background of upper left photo). Steve Grantham, from Bubwith, North Yorkshire UK, reports, “Black Rock, Buffalo is based around a small REA depot and attached team tracks.
Operations on the layout are also typical of Bob’s work, being simple in concept and complex in achievement.
Simon Ward, from York, England, has a photo page (no longer active) of his work-in-progress layout, Temple Lane. Stu Hilton, from Truro, Cornwall, England, came up with an unusual bi-level switching shelf.


Southwark Park is the terminus of a [fictional] short branch line in South London, England.
According to Will, “Each staging and platform road is four feet long to accomodate a large tender locomotive and two bogie passenger carriages, or a smaller tender locomotive and three 26-foot carriages, and so on.
This would be an amazing road featuring finescale modelling of passenger service in an extremely small space. Les comments, “The building housing the hand-operated two-level traverser is a foamcore mock up which will be replaced shortly. Wearing a familiar cap and armed with his trusty snowplow, Thomas hauls two festively decorated cars to bring BIG holiday cheer to one and all. The fact that the late era narrow gauge can be done with Bachmann On30 equipment was a surprising bonus. On the fiddle yard, I have 3 tracks that allow me to do various movements between the layout and the “rest of the world”.
I order the hull in vacuum plastic in UK (30 inches long) plus the accessories of another supplier in UK.
Here is a useful video from Woodland Scenics on water and water effects, naturally using their products. There is always a risk with something like resin cracking, and spoiling the effect, so using something with a bit of flexibility might prevent this. Here’s a very small shelf, designed to fit in the palm of the hand, by Frederic Gantier, from Rennes, France. When the train arrives at one end, infrared beams trigger the circuit to make it go back the other direction. Here’s impressive proof (right) from Frank Bergmans, who lives in Dommelen, the Netherlands. David added a few flourishes to the original plan, increasing the number of sidings in the lower yard (at right) and adding a useful runaround loop (passing siding). Eldon has been model railroading for several years now, but Smokey Hollow Railroad is his first narrow-gauge line and first micro layout.
He hasn’t built the car float yet, but the bridge is in place (below, right) and cars are added to it or removed manually. Looking at an old railway map of Buffalo I located an area that could well have had such a depot and, after looking on Google Earth, I found out the area was called Black Rock… Dimensions are 6ft long including fiddleyard by 7 inches wide (180x18cm). With its connection to the Brighton mainline the station stayed bouyant from its construction in 1869 until its closure during WW1 and subsequent abandonment upon grouping. Push-pull workings will simply call at the station and reverse out (for a similar example, see Greenwich Park Station).
Les started by aiming at the Wealden Railway Group’s 3xA4 layout challenge (described above), but when those plans fell through he was hooked and has continued work on the layout. I puzzled for some time about how to hold the vertical traverser in the uppermost position before hitting on the solution. These are really BIG trains, built essentially board-by-board, just like the real ones are. Carl came to Pittsburgh to attend Carnegie Mellon where he graduated with a degree in physics and met Sheila, his wife of 49 years.
I run the layout from the front in order to be able to share and discuss with the visitors. The sound of the loco is also played under the layout with an Esu sound decoder plus a subwoofer and two satellites.
David Richardson’s version (left and below) features a long platform for mainline trains and two short railmotor platforms for commuter traffic.
It illustrates well how much railroading you can do in just a small space, using narrow gauge!


Also under construction are four charcoal kilns to fit in the brown space beside the main building. Another good stunt is using the Walthers concrete plant (below, left) as a an industrial backdrop for the layout. The scenic board was originally an N scale layout acquired from a friend!” The fiddle yard is simply a stub track available for manual addition and removal of cars.
Services from London Bridge, Bricklayers Arms, Croydon or further afield will need to have their carriages removed by the station pilot for them to be released to the nearby shed for turning and servicing (for a similar example, see: Central Croydon).
The traverser can turn on the vertical rod as well as move up and down on it. At the top position I swivel the traverser by a few degrees—about half an inch at the ends—and settle it on fixed supports at each end. A long, narrow shelf is about all that can be accommodated in an average home in this scale! Simon also makes and sells a range of modeling supplies for this big scale under the trade name Modelearth Design. In parallel, I play a CD on a CD player links also to another separate Hercules XPS2-135 system.
For a calm harbour you wouldn't add as many ripples, although being on the coast it wouldn't be perfectly flat.
I built up multi layers over the winter(it thus took longer to dry), but I think the results are quite good. As far as I know its not available in shops, I bought a large quantity , at discount price from Ethical Superstore in Gateshead. All in all, there’s a lot of operation packed into this tiny area, whether it’s operated on its own or as a switching branch of the large layout that provides its fiddle yard! The scenery is urban, which I think gives a much more believable reason for a cramped layout.
When I want to lower the traverser, I swivel it back again slightly and lower it using the handle (see lower left photo).
In this case the action is sandwiched between a pair of overbridges, one with a dummy rapid transit station on it and the other carrying a highway. Following retirement from Westinghouse, Carl threw himself into the world of micro-railroading.
This web site attracted a large worldwide following, and Carl built up a collection of friends who came to know and respect him even though most had never met him in person. I liked the 2 foot ones because they're bigger than O scale and can use just about any Bachmann On30 locomotive. I know 1:35 is a military Modelers scale, so people and vehicles should be easy to come by. He and Sheila moved to Olympia in 2009 to be close to their son Giles and his family, where Carl enjoyed time with his three grandchildren.
Is the track gauge difference between the two worth the hassle of no commercial support in 1:37n2? His wit, erudition, and creativity made this true gentleman a joy to be with, in both the real and the virtual world. This site is a trove of microlayout ideas and examples, and so long as it continues will keep Carl's memory alive and further the hobby he loved.
