I am working on a 20 x 40 multi level ON30 layout. I am also scratch building a lot of the structures for this railroad. This one is the roundhouse. No particular prototype, just a generic roundhouse. If you have questions please feel free to post them here. Russ

Any updates on this Russ? Looks nice. Is this scratch-built, or a kit? (Or both?)

It was done on my cnc machine and is my design but of no particular prototype. Made with sintra pvc plastic. I have done nothing further as we are not working on that area for now. The ON30 trains are a part time part of our train hobby as our warmer weather railroad fun is the live steam park. I should work on the roundhouse area this coming winter. Thanks for asking. Russ

is there a way to make it so when you click on a photo it opens larger I would love to see the roundhouse in better detail and a larger image would do that ?

Its partly my fault 'cause' I takes pix for the web mostly so they are usually not more than 640x480. A lot of the sites don't even like them that big. Here is a 640x480 for an example: So what is it that you would like to see in more detail and I'll see what I can do. Russ

you made this out of sintra or close to it I was wanting to see the detail in what your cnc did I have been looking at cnc's or laser and this is a fine example of what can be done

The better piece is the Chama Oil House, look at the winery style door, that was done with a 1/16th inch ball nose bit. The main door is 1 1/4 in x 1 1/2 in h, the man door is 3/4 x 1 1/2 in. I have also used 1/64th bits for doing pc boards. All this on a machine designed to do full sheets of plywood! Whoda thunkit! Russ

You also start to think outside the box and figure out how to do complete assemblies as single pieces, such as the very few pieces it takes to do the Chama Coaling tower. Russ

jhainer01 - I will look into that, great idea.

Russ - I never get tired of seeing your work, and learning from you about how you do these cool projects.

Thanks guys, it means a lot. It is not hard if the software and hardware are matched up from the beginning. Vectric software wrote Aspire, the software that I use for almost everything, they also wrote the software for the CNC machine as well. The 3d printer I use Cubify Invent, the best $49 I have ever spent on software and for the laser I just use regular old MS Powerpoint! Happy fathers day! Russ
