Ray’s been back in touch with his 4×8 N scale:
I have been a fan of your blog over the past seven years and have found the emails, videos, and “tips and tricks” extremely helpful and informative.
I find myself looking for your email first thing every morning. Thank you and keep up the great work.
I am attaching a video of my N scale layout, updated less than a year ago.
I think I have mentioned in an earlier email that I started with a 4 x 8 layout on a piece of plywood placed on top of the pool table.
The pool table is now gone and N scale trains have since taken over my entire basement.
This video shows the accumulation of trains, rolling stock, and scenery over the past 7 years.
My layout is not a specific prototype and may not make sense to your viewers.
I have a fleet of 10 plus Dutch locomotives, because of the time I spent in Holland after college and since my wife is Dutch.
I have locomotives from different eras and road names. I have modeled a collection of places and activities that I have enjoyed over the past 60 plus years, including an amusement park, circus, fishing holes, lakes for swimming, water falls, mountains. a variety of wildlife, a scale model of Worcester Union Station, parks, European outdoor market, windmills, a gondola lift, and much more.
Although I have basically run out of space, I am sure there will be additions, and adjustments in the years to come. As we know, our layouts are never really finished.
Wishing you and all your followers a very happy and healthy New Year!
A big thanks to Ray for sharing his 4×8 N scale.
