TrainMan2001's HO/OO Trains

It looks great and of course it would be considered a custom. Excellent idea.

I got this for Christmas! Also, it looks like no one caught my drift about the narrow track.

I was at a train show for the past few days and toom a couple of engines to run. Here are the engines:

I also bought some HO and N scale track, a tank, and a car with two different coupler styles so I could hook certain trains together easier. I put the tank behind Thomas on a flat car so I could have Thomas, the tank. I also got to bring home one of the club modules so I could repair the track and personalize it. I am thinking of a WWII theme, hence the tank (it actually did happen to be one the Allies used). I will post the progress of that when I can, but it will take a while.

I really like the Rolling Stock behind Thomas and those red Coaches. Are those two Headlamps for Thomas stock or is one added? I always assumed he had only one but I am no expert. Really look forward to your progress on a WWII themed Layout.

The one on his left (our right, was added by me).

No. Although if you compare my Bachmann Thomas to the regular model, I repainted the dummy couplers, the spot between the tanks and wheel arches black, and, if you want to see the back of the model, I could take a picture of his rear lamp (I painted the "lenz" red).

Oh yes, I am always interested in seeing custom work whatever it is.

Here is the picture of his rear lamp. I also took a picture of the board. I am in the middle of removing the track and cork underlay.

I also got a milk tanker and some new track for the board.

Also, instead of doing a World War II theme, I am going to do a basic countryside theme to learn how to do stuff like that. I also decided on what I am going to do for my layout when I can build one myself. I am planning on an open grid style layout set in 1993. I will scratchbuild buildings to look like the ones available during 1993 of the Thomas Wooden Railway. I will also be doing the rolling stock based on the ones available for the TWR in 1993, hence the milk tanker. All Thomas stock I already own that isn't parallel for this time setting will be based off of rolling stock that the Bluebell Railway had in 1993. I am planning on having Thomas and Gordon along with some engines from the Bluebell Railway.

I changed my Thomas's face to an old wooden railway one I had because I think it looks better and it isn't sun-yellowed (my guess is that the set I got 2 years ago had been sitting right behind a window for several years). Also, Super, is there any way that this thread could be moved to the OO scale sub-forum instead of the HO one?
