Hello, I am Edwin from the Netherlands and I have been doing O scale for more than 20 years. I read your forum with great

pleasure almost every day. I am working on a layout in a U forum what I like is almost as real as possible to build hopping

you like those pictures.

Hi Edwin, That rockface work is fabulous! I don't think I have ever seen better. And your trains look exactly right with the scenery. You have a realistic treasure there, so I am hoping you will be showing us more of it as time goes on.

It is very nice to have you aboard, all the way from the Netherlands, no less!


I contacted Edwin and heard back from him. Will work with him to prodivea full feature for the magazine. All I ask is he reserve a good number of "unpublished" photos for the magazine so the paying readers get something that is not seen elsewhere, at least until after the issue appears. That is something I request of all authors. Folks who pay for the magazine deserve, insofar as possible, to get "unique" images.

Yes, fabulous pictures and great layout. 

Let us know when the article will be published. I normally do not buy 3 rails material, but will definitely do an exception for this 2 rails layout.


I am happy to run 2-rail layouts whenever I receive them (assuming they will be of interest to our readers). Ditto for O scale narrow gauge. I am NOT exclusively 3-rail minded, even though that is what I have myself. Come to think of it, I have a lot of On30, too, and am seriously thinking about getting some 2-rail scale and work with a local 2-rail club here from time to time.

Yeah, me too.  I subscribe now and then when I think there will be a 2-rail article of interest in subsequent issues.  I will have to try to buy the issue with Edwin's photos.

Note to Allan - I would buy such an issue even if all the photos had been seen here.  Nothing like a good hard-copy magazine to fondle.

Nice scenery, and quality models!  Get Allan to move this thread to all forums?

Edwin,  Very impressive modeling and photography.   As Frank M & Bob3 mentioned, might be the most realistic rock work I have ever seen.   Detail work and weathering in the yard area is also excellent.   Thanks for sharing the photos,  I will be using them for reference purposes as I continue to build my layout.    Please keep posting, your work is inspiring !   Chris A

Thanks everybody to do the rocks was for me very important on my layout after I done the yard but it is not finished yet still a lot of work but that is the fun.

I was in the states last year take a lot of photos and the color was very important so now the pictures of my layout will go to the magazine so everybody can see but don't worry

still a lot of more pictures I have and show you on this forum.


It's a long time so a few more pictures about my layout. I t was to hot so now I started again to move forward a lot to do to make it better.

The yard is far from finished I think to rebuild it more structures. The FEF locomotive from Overland Models I still working on the weathering.

and it runs not so perfect so there is work also.
