I have two layouts for you in today’s missive: Ron’s, and below that, the suitcase layout!
“I completed this layout this past holiday season.
It is a 4X8 built and planned for expansion. I built this with the idea of selling it as my joy is in the building and seeing the finished product.
It is foam over a wood frame and very light weight. The scenery is all hard shell plastercloth, with both molded and sculped rock and features made from light weight Hydrocal. It is entirely painted and covered with landscaping materials. All builings were built,kitbashed and aged. Some are scratch built, such as the lumber yard,covered bridge,etc. As soon as this sells I will start the expansion or a new design.
This is wired so that it can be used as DC or DCC Quite easily. Please pass along my email if someone is interested or has questions.
Attached are pics of my “Train in a suitcase”. I have now sold it, but I am still working on another, larger layout for both analog and digital operation. Hopefully I will soon be able to send you some more pictures of my current venture.
Big thanks to Ron and especially to CW. How anyone can make such a detailed, functional layout in a suitcase is beyond me. I loved it.
Also thanks to everyone who mailed me yesterday about the last post. Seems here is where it started for a lot of you also.
And while everyone is snoozing, some great deals around at the mo. Latest ebay cheat sheet is here.
