That's a good idea, its not accurate but I think some people take the model railroading hobby too seriously. It will work fine with rusty. Happy kitbashing!

so far no one asked the obvious, but how much room do you have?
You really want to design the layout before running out and buying a bunch of stuff that might not fit. (And think it may not look right if you have a great shed setup on a small layout with no place to go.)

Also, assuming you have lots of room, consider working with cork roadbed and flex track. It looks better, is more satisfying, more cost effective, plus you have greater flexability not being stuck with the selection of curves/lengths available with snap track.

Well if you look back in the thread you will see I was going to try a project with a gandy dancer, well I got it today but have decided not to do it. Instead I also got some model paints and have decided to make myself as a tank engine. It is going to be a white, black, red, or silver engine I haven't decided yet. I'm asking what color you would like to see this turn out to be.
