Brian’s been in touch with his 6×12 N scale:
You are a daily read and I’ve waited far too long to send you a video of my layout.
We retired from Colorado to Lake Lanier Georgia in September of 2019.
Work began quickly on my new layout, a 6×12 duck under located in our walkout basement.
I was able to recycle so much of my previous layout in Colorado and applied lessons learned from that one to the new one.
Not the least of which is a layout height of 43 inches for easy access to wiring etc under the layout.
My video shows you a quick look at the initial framing to how the layout looks today.
So, here’s my tour:
I have two main lines, one for UP/Amtrak and the other for BNSF.
The layout is situated in Wyoming, location based on the best selling series of books by author C.J. Box.
It has lots of “inside” scenes for those who read the popular series.
Power is DC. I can operate two lines at the same time and that’s enough for me. Track and engines are KATO.
Hope you can share with your readers!
A big thanks to Brian for sharing his 6×12 N scale.
It certainly looks like he’s having fun and that’s what it’s all about.
I read a comment from one of you recently which really struck a chord with me, because there is never one way of doing something – and none of them are wrong.
The comment – I think it was posted by George – simple said:
“If you’re having fun, you’re doing it right.”
Amen to that.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming – it’s all gone very quiet at the mo.
And if today is the day you make your start, just like Brian did, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
