Gregg Cudworth’s Omni RGS Nn3
Gregg’s double deck Nn3 layout fills a 40 X 50 ft. basement. He chose N scale because he wanted to model big scenes rather than big models. All trackwork, including switches, is handlaid using code 30 rail on PCB and wood ties resting on Masonite spline roadbed. Eventually there will be about 650 feet of mainline starting at 36 inches on the lower level up to 66 inches on the upper level. The structures are either scratchbuilt or laser cut kits. The scenery is formed using carved foam as a base covered with cast plaster rocks, ground foam and dirt texturing. Trees are made using sage brush armatures covered with polyfiber and ground foam. Motive power is either scratchbuilt or kits of K-27s, K-28s, C-16s, etc. Rolling stock is a mixture of MicroTrains and resin and etched brass kits. All of the benchwork is constructed along with 20% of the track and scenery.
