Another new one just starting Hon3 from Australia
« on: February 19, 2013, 01:35:25 AM »
Hi from the land down under I have just made the start into Hon3 for space reasons.
I currently model in o scale and don't have room to continue the current layout in On30.
I like the big engines c & k class and as they require a lot of room in O have made a decision to give Hon3 a go I will go back to the o scale when more space becomes avalible ie new house with its own dedicated train area.
 With the current RTR models c & k class's + nice rolling stock it made the decision easy.

I'm not going to model a specific area or era I am going to be a bit different and model a tourist railroad taking ideas from the current D&S + C&TSR but freelance so no one can say that loco never ran with those cars.

For a start I have a b/s c19 bumble bee with a set of yellow coaches some k27's and on order some of the blackstone red coaches I am also on the lookout for a chilli line set of green cars these were out of stock at the shop I orded the red set from.
just to mix it up their is a selection of freight cars for the photo specials + 2 long cabooses I plan on filling one with people just like on special runs.

I will be making a start soon on the layout, it is to be the end of the line with a wye to turn the trains, making it the end of the line I can justify having several trains in the station area at one time just like on the tourist railroads. If I can workout how to post pics I will start a topic in the layout section to update the progress as thing move from base boards to a model railroad.
Happy modeling to all
Chris
