Welcome to Harris Creek Central.


A place to add your name and comments.  I appreciate enough detail to give me a clue as to who you might be..  An email address is always appreciated. 


Enjoy the railway, and I will be adding to it as time permits, and as I continue to figure out how to make things work.


Thanks for your comments and best wishes.

Hallo, I am building a combined model railway, trumway and a Metro or Underground, all in scale HO, 1:87. I use the furniture of an old fullsized orchestra grand-piano, it is 220 cm long. One thing I longed for was a wind turbine but it was to high. In Germany I found a wind turbine kit <http://www.herpa.de/windenergy>; transported on eight heavy trucks. Now, there is a building plant. For the moment I am figuring out how to build an escalator of this type: <http://www.city.ac.uk/news/2010/sep/city-university-london-unveils-worlds-first-freeform-curved-escalator>; I have received two drawing from professor Levy. I also collect small precision tools and I have a fully equiped EMCO Unimat Mk 3 and a small Lorsch & Smith lathe. For my little workshop I have used the furniture o an old piano, 160 cm high. I often order tools fron <http://www.micromark.com/>;. Regards, Tomas

Thank You for checking in to my humble little web page.  I checked out your 2010 pictures.  Looks like you have a nice layout shaping up.  I would be interested in where you are living, and how you came in touch with my web page.  I'm sorry that I haven't be keeping this right up to date, buut I have been very busy with the regular job jars things that have to be done.


Keep an eye open for a new page coming (as soon as I get time). I am importing a nice line of Lamp Posts, Miniature light bulbs, Led's, Cars with lights already installed.  PAINTED People HO and N Scale. Farm animals. etc..  Excellent pricing..


Again Thanks for checking in.

Enjoyed the pictures of your railroad.  I've included a web site (www.speakeasy.org/~elliott/Trains/ that contain a few from my N Scale layout.  I'm a retired US Army Colonel with over 26 years of service.  Now I spend my free time "working on the railroad" and traveling in our RV.

Drop a line.

Harv. I had no idea your layout was so fantastic. I hadn't seen any pictures. I am redoing my layout in code 100 track instead of the 83. Keeps me out of trouble. Fred

Wow! Harvey, this looks great! Now I know what you've been up to since retiring from photography. I think the last time I was in your garage, you had but a fraction of what you have now. Way to go!
