It must have been the camera angle they look normal now.

How come you edited and added the comment in my post?
It is a little confusing reading it.

Maybe a G scale clock on the wall?
A G scale chair for the switchman?

Sorry about the confusion. I edit my posts so much and got carried away.

I like your clock idea, I was thinking of a track map on the wall. I want to do steps first.

I figured that is why you added to mine as I had your picture in the post.
I speed read, you speed edit.

A track map would look good.
You could maybe use a printer to make one and just glue it on?
Or a piece of cardstock and a black pen or marker, then just glue it on?

Needs a light inside to? Outside lights would look good too.
Maybe a G scale dog to keep the switchman company.

Big Ed, I read that post a couple times and still couldn't figure out how he edited yours! Now that is weird, maybe a glitch in the system?

Aha, thanks. Sorry for the interruption.

T-man, the switch tower looks great but it appears you dismantled it and started from scratch. Nice work.

You will know if I get carried away if I use a siding. They sell clapboard sheets. But the lights, Oh yeah lots of lights so far I am planning on interior(maybe red? for night) and outdoor under the railing overhang. The wall clock was going to be a circle but I may go with one that has the pendulum.

Stairway to Heaven

Time for an update. The next step is figure out how to place the stairs. Using popsicle sticks I constructed the stairs first and figured three flights would be needed.

They look great, but I'll bet you had to scarf down a lot of Popsicles to get the material for those stairs!

Thumbs up

Is this a ketchup post?
Where is the painted shot of the stairs?

I know you were having troubles thinking about how to make the stairs.

I think you nailed it on the stairs T.
I give you an at-ta-boy, job well done.
