“Attached is an update of my layout. I took down the old layout in Jan and this is where my new layout stands as of September.
I am currently working on a flashing crossing with working gates for the double main as well as test running all my locomotives.
Once everything is good to go, I will decide on what scenery I want and do the backdrop based on that.
There will be a tunnel in the corner where the drainage ditch is. There is a piece of Masonite protecting trains from falling off.
Access is available from below in case of derailment.
That’s it for now. Thanks for all you do for the hobby.

And now on to Ron:
“Hello, I have been following your email posts for sometime.
I find your content fascinating and and just plain different because it offers content out of the massive model railroading main stream.
I have a small 11 x 14 layout. I would like to share with your readers.
It’s not very complicated, but it certainly is railroading in a small space. But generous enough for my current style of model railroading.
Simple dogbone with eclectic scenery. Learning along the way and just having fun running trains.
It’s a practice layout shall we say.
Here are a few images.
A big thanks to Ron and Bob. They just go to show, it’s all about making that start and cracking on.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here, if you want to stop dreaming, and start doing.
