A few years back I got a N scale train for Christmas, and had to come up with a layout for it. I will add more details to the images later, but wanted you to see how it is coming along.

Finally added the text details to the images, and added a few more images of my progress.

Here we have a batch of evergreen trees I made. Bought these trees pre-made. Every city needs a church, so went out and bought this little gem. This building was a kit I bought. Saw this truck depot and had to have it in the city. This is my first attempt at making mountains. This is the other side of the mountain area.

Welcome to charlesnutting.net

I'm going to be up front here about charlesnutting.net, this site is in no way connected to me selling a book I wrote, plastering the pages with ads to click on, or in no way making me any money.

The whole purpose of this site is to show people things I love to do, display my photography skills (or lack of), and experiment with new web technologies.

It’s also a place for me to jump on my soapbox and rant about the way the programming world is changing. In my Blog there are programming tips on coding JavaScript, and soon other langauges.
