I am also interested in model railroading. I am a member of a Yahoo Group called Railroad Buildings and Structures. Someone asked about tiny furniture. A fellow in Kansas City named Kent Hurley gave a link to his Flickr site. While browsing his Flickr site, I discovered this.

He uses an online company called Shapways 3d to make 3d printer models for his model railroad. The wire in the photo is a paper clip. He says they are HO Scale. He designed them using Sketchup.

I emailed him to ask permission to post the photo here and he emailed me this photo.

He is still building the model that will have the machines inside.

He has a blog at http://nvrr49.blogspot.com/

Hope everyone enjoys Kent’s efforts.

only need a printer head and a new program to make them better than a 3D printer can do it
