Hello group, I'm a rubber gauger, modeling in N, HO, British OO and O. Lately, I've been involved with building a small 4x8' On30 display layout for our museum http://historicrailpark.com/. I purchased a Bachmann Royal Blue set and am converting the 2-6-0 to something more to my liking.

This is my 2x4 foot exhibition layout "Doe Run" that has been making the local rounds since 1992. It has a 1/2 inch plywood 1/2 inch homoslote sub roadbed and 3/4 inch marine plywood sides and weighs 23 lbs. The scenery is done with foam housing insulation stacked cake style with Woodland Scenics scenery. It continues to work with very few problems other than track cleaning.

Here is a close up of a Milwaukee Road FM C-Liner exiting Doe Run Tunnel.

Hi Brent,

Doe Run is a neat diorama. Is that "Pink Lady" ballast?

That C-Liner really splashes the color surrounded by limestone. The rock work is really authentic. Nice work!
