Project: O Scale Loco Shed w/working Doors

Hi to all,

I have started an O scale engine house project with working motorized doors for Proses about two months ago. Unlike the usual way, I shared the designing steps on some O gauge Facebook groups and asked their opinions, suggestions, comments to make it an interactive, end-user contributed project. It really helped a lot. At the beginning, I was planning a 50 cm long house. Many people said that wouldn't be enough and I increased it to 60 cm. On my first design steps, the doors were sliding under the roof horizontally which I changed to a rolling mechanism as many people said they want to see the interior when looking from above and a sliding mechanism is blocking the view from the top.

That was an interesting and productive time course which took shape as below at the end.

Now I am working on the HO/OO scale and hope to finish it in a few weeks and bring it to The London Festival of Railway Modelling at Alexandra Palace on 23rd of March.

All the best,

Harum Good Afternoon, Really Like your engine shed With the doors that work very nice touch. Something that Faller & Wollmer never improved on. So if you ever decide to make a 12 Stall roundhouse in Either Swiss or German for a Fleischmann Turntable Ho with working Doors I would be very interested.

Very Nice Work.

I'll take that into consideration for sure. Thanks.
