Vintage HO Trains.
#1
Being 90% of what I have is vintage trains, I'll share them here.

I'll start with a small freight train. A little NYC 0-4-0t shuttles a couple of freight cars on a short local run.
This is actually a HObbyline 1956 train set #412 "the Shuttle Bug" as it would be seen in an old catalog. The freight cars and the caboose are all original in fit and finnish, Even the road names are the same on the loco and cars.

Like the vintage-looking houses and other structures too.

Since Don has mentioned it, I finally noticed the structures, too.  I do recognise the Revell "farmhouse" at the back left of the photo, but can you tell us who made the grey house with the "widow's walk", at the back right-side of the photo please?

The structure is an old Victorian mansion. The name Gold Rush comes to mind when thinking about it. The method of building is computer generated made is a spinning process. That's it Gold Rush Bay.  Here's a link. Be prepared to say a lot of Ooooh- Ahhhh's.

The one I have has an interior in it.

Thanks for the link, a very impressive bunch of structures. Not much N scale, but it's hard not to like everything there.

Don, I looked at it earlier and there is a page of N scale, an N section, and a couple of others on page 1. I am looking at a big station and another house. Actually, there are three in my cart. 

  Got to get my main lines running. First I have to frame in my power pack then run a cable for my 2 throttles.  After that wire in the throttles and I hope something will run. Then I have some remote switches to get wired in.

Thanks, I'll look again, but when I click on either "N scale", all I get are a barn and a blacksmith shop. Elsewhere I see a balloon and that's all of the N scale I see there. it is impressive the way they detail the inside as well and the prices are more than reasonable.

This guy is great. He will answer any email and he will do special stuff when he has time (that's the catch) 
I got a passenger car interior from him and it was priced reasonably and worked well. I would bet that he could print any of those buildings in n scale if you asked.

Well back to vintage. The easy way is to post photos with short descriptions. The hard is to compose 3 or 4 paragraphs and tell about what I am trying to do. And of course, I tried the hard way and made up the text on what I was doing with my layout and whatever and Located a link to a video and hit the wrong little X, and it's gone. So now I wrote this and I'll post the link. A short version of the lost paragraphs is " I will get my layout going in a few days or maybe tomorrow. AT soon to be 75, what the heck.

It's a Heck of a day.
