Here are a few daylight pics of my mining diorama I brought up to ECLSTS.
Its a dual gauge 1/24 scale with a 42 inch ore train and a 15 inch mine tram. The mine tram ran in and out of the tunnel automatically on a 30 second cycle.

Thanks Peter. The mountain is just layers of pink foam insulation board first carved with a tree pruning saw then with a Tippi hot wire foam cutter -



The ore cars are Bachmann ones that I modified a bit (stressed, delton trucks with small Bachmann wheels, Ozark l&p couplers and brake wheel).

Very nice setup. Does that 15" tram mean HO gauge track? And, are you going to make the cars dump?


Les





Yes, its HO gauge, Peco On30 track with bigger ties than HO. Works well with Gn15 stuff. Dumping mine cars are perhaps a future project

i see, that you left your diorama open to the sides.
do you plan to prolongate?




I wish I could. Sadly, SWMBO allows me no room indoors for trains.

Though I can't complain too much with two outdoor layouts
