After finished my Sidi Fontana layout at oo9 scale, I start a new one. San Sergio Leone : an ON30 Mexican authentic western spaghetti line. I like the spaghetti western films and and I want to recreate this spirit in a layout. I was influenced by a layout called "performance western" by my friend raul Valls, by also an english layout called "the layout with no name" and a the Estrella & Sonara grande railroad of Verne Niner. I choice the on30 scale because the Bachmann products are very affordable and I have already two baldwins 4-6-0 with dcc sound. All the rolling stocks will be Bachmann that I buy at trainworld.com at an incredible price.

I locate the layout in mexican because there is too much layouts located in the USA and I prefer also the adobe houses. The layout in itself mesures 80 inches by 25 inches plus 2 transfert tables on each end plus an hidden track.

The buildings will be a mixed between true mexican houses, the chuch of San Diego, a jail, a lee van cleef bank and false building for western film. A mine also will be located on right.

The figures are mainly mexican (modified from pegasus hobbies) with monks and also true figures at scale of Lee Van Cleef and Clint Eastwood.

The backdrop is a photo of desert of Ian Parker printed on a PVC tarpaulin.

The story is located in a small, poor and peaceful mexican town near the USA border when the bad cow-boys attack the town.

This is the drawing of the layout :

Cool idea . :tada:

As far as a cantina Rose's Cantina would work for me even though it was in El Paso.. Rose's cantina was in the song "El Paso" by the great Marty Robins.

Hi Lutz,

Thank you for the link. The rolling stocks will be more realistic with Bachmann ones but I will try to keep the spirit in mind.
