Just an update on my layout. I'm kind of shy about posting because the stuff people are doing on this site is so professional. But I'm hope'n it might encourage others to go ahead and go for it....
I've added a fork lift (well as long as you don't look too closely). I made it from a very ground down Z gauge tractor and some pieces of one of those paper cranes Allen sells on Tgauge.com

Seconded. As a first class procrastinator I do like to see layouts built to a good level of completion. Anything which can inspire me to actually get on and do something has to be good, and whilst I seem to have no problem turning out parts - wagons, boxcar, road vehicles, buildings etc - actually getting on with my layout seems to keep getting away from me!

It is a nice little scene. It is all about how it looks from a distance, certainly no closer than from the edge of the layout, and - as your photo shows - it looks great from that distance. Now all you need is a backscene. :D

yes, a backscene would be nice ....but for now the layout spends most of its time stacked upright in the corner of the studio....our place is just too small.....another reason you gota love the T.. :P

I'm making some crude attempts at kit bashing some equipment that looks the right size next to the T gauge trucks and cars......

The Shapeway stuff is good looking, but it just looks too big next to the T gauge vehicles......I know it says it's T gauge (and Stoney made the grader 38% smaller) but it still just seems too big......
