Bill: Wazoo #2:

This second version was done in 1/2in scale on On3 spaced track. (1/2n18) Rail is code 125. (Because I had a lot of it on hand) All turnouts were scratch built in place. One being built on a 12in and 10in radius curve. This layout was done on a 36in * 80in wide hollow core door with an added on extension (15´ x 48´) for the pier at one end. This is the one I sold to Barry Lawrence, which to my knowledge, he still has.

Henrik: The genious about this Hn18 layout (the second Wazoo) is that it is so extremely balanced. There is nothing added that shouldn´t be there. Only three switches and a simple loop, still it amazes train fans over the hole world. Bill used On3 locos and materials and adapted it to Hn18 (1:24 scale on 19.05mm gauge tracks). It was made around 2003.

This layout are now own by Barry Lawrence, but if not sold yet it is for sale!

If you have any more except these below, I would be happy to add them here.
