Hi Lee - will you be adding mortar to the bricks and then weathering the whole thing - looks like it would be ideal for a full on weathering treatment?

Going by the vehicles is it 1:43 (O gauge)?

Simon yes it is O scale 1/48 I use 1/43 cars on the layout they work well. I plan on washing the brick and do some light weathering on the metal thanks for stopping by

O scale over here in UK is generally 1/43 - didn't realise it was different in US. Just looked it up and found that it is different again in most of europe who use 1:45

Looks good Lee
The three rail set up is unusual.....not at all common in the UK, at least, not In the last fifty years....are locos and stock still available new, or is this an historical collection?
