If you want to put tracks in the DF passages you will probably run into problems because of the tight curves (providing you are using the curved passages, of course). You could try handlaying your track with just about any radius you want, if the readymade stuff isn't available. If you do it with some care it would still work with the Roco mine carts.

willypold--what are "Roco" mine carts? Is that a brand? What scale are the carts & tracks?

Dante,

Roco is an Austrian model railroad maker, and also the producer of the Roco MiniTanks line of HO scale military vehicles. The "mine carts" I'm referring to is a small series of narrow gauge industrial equipment using the N scale track gauge (and originally N gauge mechanisms - 1:160). The trains themselves are HO scale narrow gauge, originally depicting military railway equipment used in the trenches during the First World War.

The series include a steamer, a diesel engine and several tiny 4-wheel and 8-wheel dump wagons and flat cars. Roco's website is at www.roco.co.at, but I couldn't find anything about the narrow gauge stuff at that page - but I just had a quick look. The line is in production, though.

The locos and cars were originally produced in the early 60's by a German company called Egger-Bahn, and in the late 60's production was taken over by the French modelmaker Jouef, before it dropped out of sight. Ages ago Roco brought out the dies and started producing parts of the original series once more.

Just wanted to congratulate your son on the mine!

That's some talent! Really a great piece.

On behalf of my son, Clanguard (Maxminis username), I would like to thank everyone for the kind words.

While ebarrased at all the attention, it has helped to encourage him to help me out on a few endeavours I am currently working on.

Thanks again to those people who passed on their kind words.

Like I said before, I can't wait to get my son involved in gaming. There are so, so many cool projects I have slated to work on but would like to wait on some to have him participate when he's old enough!

If your son keeps it up, he could really make a name for himself as he progresses in level of skill. That could earn him a pretty good job later on with one of the major scenery makers or with the evil empire... Games Workshop. ::grin::

Sheesh--I posted this and then thought, "I should have said he could wind up with a great job at Dwarven Forge" so I had to hit the edit button quickly. ha ha...

DarkFather,

I am jumping in at the End of all of this Discussion, but I Think your Son Deserves the Accolades for Sure and Certain... That is a Very Kewl Mine Entry, the More so because of the Utility of it's Separation allowing it to be used as a Facade (As in the Pics), or as a 3D Terrain Piece/Hill for Wargames... Very Nice Design...!!!

As to the Rail Roads... I Have Advocated from Early on in the History of this Site, the Inclusion of HO or N Scale Tracks... But I Never even thought about Using them in the Corridors themselves... But rather in the Cavernous Layouts, which is more of a "Natural" and Irregular Environment for a Mine... IMLHO...
