    Typically, the ramp was attached to the pier. Also realize that with the tides, it had to be able to move up or down to connect to the ferry, so it had to be hinged on the pier end. Look at the carry ferry contact sheet that Keith referred to; bottom right hand photo. That set of pilings and hoist, one each side, did the raising/lowering.

Use an NMRA track gauge tool to maintain correct rail alignment and super glue the rail to the decking. I'm sure there's a more professional method but that's what came to mind for me....

My reason for saying the F&C is 2ft gauge, is because I want the F&C to use used equipment from other 2ft roads such as the Sandy River & Rangely Lakes, the Lynton & Barnstaple, and the War Department Light Railways of WWI. In other news the F&C will soon be adding a new 47 Chevy Railtruck for M-O-W service.

    To each his own, but code 83 is plenty robust for use in O scale and represents light rail a bit better than code 100. Of course painting, weathering and other detailing will go a long ways towards adding realism to whichever code rail you use. Have at it!

    Jim, I plan to use Peco Code 100 On30 flex track on the main line, and Atlas Code 100 HO scale set track(with every other tie removed) on the sidings and industrial tracks.
