Hello All !

 

My name is Jean-François but my frends call me Jef, i come from france, The smelling cheeses plate of the world. 😁

 

I am a N scale model Railroader since 15 years. I have built a Model railroad witch is on Rio Grande Western Theme. It is named The turtle Field railroad.

Here is a photo of the layout (3'1/2 by 6') :

Here is a video :

 

 

 

I have started A very huge project, witch is an extention of the Turtle Field Railroad named "Spirit of Denver" witch is inspired by diferrent sites on Denver city (Colorado) area. It feat The light rail line, Burnham locomotive facility, Colorado Convention Center (With Blue Bear  😋) and the Gates rubber plant. All these sites are revisited with my own inspiration and the nessisity of size and layout arrangement. For instance here is the First part of the master piece of the extention (5000 plastic parts when it will be finished) : a fully scratch build Colorado Convention center project :

But this huge project is very energy and time consuming project and i need a pause. So i have decided to build a small exibition layout, on a completly different project to get a balloon of oxygen.

The theme of this new project is the Eizan line From Demachiyanagi to Kurama. And now you know the reason i am here, to join you on this intersting forum. 😜

 

Planning in done, an i am working on bench work now. The layout will be oriented on fun and dedicated to simply enjoy driving trains. The layout is 4'1/3 by 2'1/2 ( 130cm *75cm). Here is the start of the bench work :  ( I will start a special thread to show you in details the build of this model railroad if you are interested)
