Another good idea. How’s Mike’s 734 coming along?

Well, its comming. Right now all I can say is, its in the design stages. I want to map out all the cuts FIRST, before any is made in the boiler that way no mistakes are made. So... it will take awhile, Its just with the work I do, I have to hone in on whats needed and what I have to work with so I make the old carpenter saying a reality,
"Measure twice, cut once". Plus, I want to make it as accurate as very possible. Not to mention, when his WMSRR 734 is done, it will be drawbared to a brass tender!

This is an off topic question but what kind of a layout are you working on? One that fits your engines or…?
I don’t really have a then but I’m curious as to what other people try to plan for a layout

Ciao, all my electrics are in my collection but I've decided to model diesel rr because is more tipical for american style. I have more than 15 GG1, 3 AEM7 and 2 E60, plus the complete Acela Express.
After some holidays along Colorado and Wyoming rr I've decided to "switch" to diesel engines and trains, so double containers, long coal porters and Amtrak Superliners....electrics will be into my show room only!
 
If you wanna see my layout check this topic in the same dept:
 
HELP SIGNALLING LAYOUT (please help me!)
 
Or see below: the style will be somewhere on the Rocky (Moffat line style), modern era, Union Pacific owner. As in the real, will be possible to see some engines from eastern US, and there will be one Amtrak (Walthers Superliners with Athearn AMD103). The Summit has a little branch to some little warehouses. The village has a street-running track.
 
Do you like?

My NJ transit E60CH project is moving along. I'm also building an E60MA.  Right now, neither of them are near built, but I do have this one painted.  
 
They are built on American GK kits, so they have better tooling then the bachmann models.  I do need more NJ transit decals though to complete the stripes.  This thing is a monster!
