Frank’s been in touch with his 12×8 O scale:
Thoroughly enjoy your sharing of so many layouts of others. I usually take away at least one item or new idea for my railroad.
To that end, here are a couple of pictures of my O gauge railroad.
It was designed to be whimsical and fun to operate.
One of the construction goals was to make it easy and not complicated to achieve a task.
For example, the power drops to the 186 foot mainline, which runs three trains at one time. And the 75 foot trolley line.
There are about 30 power drops, but no bus line under the table. We came up with a much easier way to ensure power everywhere.
Also all the rocks are real, except the mountain which is fiber glass.
The river and lake is printed on mouse pad material, and took about 20 minutes to install, instead of all the set up work and the estimated 7 to 8 bottles of Woodland scenics water.
Quite a savings there, and looks pretty good.
So, if there is interest I would be glad to share some of the tips that we used to build the 12’ x 8’ railroad.
I am certainly open to any guidelines that you require.
Hoping to hear from you.
Wishing you a prosperous and Happy New Year!
A big thanks to Frank for sharing his 12×8 O scale.
When it comes to O scale do you remember Peter’s?
I know I say it often, but I’ll never tire of seeing what’s in my email each morning.
As long as the keep coming, I’ll keep posting.
That’s all for today folks, apart from the obvious: 2021 is drawing to a close (thankfully), so Happy New Year to you all.
And if 2022 is going to be your year to start your layout, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
