Hello everyone!

 

A few weeks ago, I've dug out my HO scale project - thanks to my son.

Here are some Alcos I've modified and repainted for my roster.

It's only a O-16.5 mm diorama to shoot photos.

 

The "new" layout is still under construction: I'm building it for my son. It's a switching layout.

 

The size is only less than 7 ft x 1 ft + the fiddle yard.

 

I'll show you soon... stay tuned please!

I thought the track & ballast looked a bit overscale ;) although the scenery is really good! 

 

Glad to see some F-Units are on the roster!! :D You need something reliable for when all those Alcos fail in service!! :sarcastichand:

Yes, that's right about the ballast. But I can live with this kind of ballast when I shoot HO scale models.

 

F-units: mmmmh! Nice locomotives.

 

Alcos can be out of order? Really?  :D  :D  :D  :D

I've began to weather my wagons...

 

Photos are made on a O-16.5 mm diorama: the same problem with the ballast size

Nice locomotives for your proposed layout. I am looking forward into seeing your track plan. Arkansas and Mississippi are two states that have some beautiful country scenery.
