 May I make a suggestion? Do you have a machine shop for your layout yet?


Not yet.  That is a good idea.

I have some O-scale lathes, mills, drill presses, grinders, etc.

They have been packed away for so long that I had almost forgot about them and hadn't thought about building a machine shop.   

Thanks for bringing that back to my attention.


 Do you use Balsa for your building material?


I use 1/2 inch OSB for the base with the sides and roof made out of 1/8 inch paneling.

Very nice JD looks real good. I like the porch. The roof looks nice too the way you overlapped it in the valleys. This is inspiring but it's hard for me in the summer to get in the mood for my trains. I blame everyone on here for this because all I think about is tractors this time of year :)
