Well, it had to happen sooner or later.
I got this one totally wrong.
The layout below was made by John, not Al, and it’s HO scale, not N.
Here’s what John sent in to put it right:
“Sorry I did not send the information correctly
The lay out is HO not N
my name is John, am 79 years old been working on this off and on for about ten years.
I am working on an N scale that folds out of a cabinet.
Thanks for the great comments.
It’s entirely my fault – not John’s. So apologies everyone.
If you thought it was a very detailed layout – now you know why…
And here’s the correct bit of John’s narrative:
“My layout takes up a 9 X 12 room
over head light is changed to track lights
there is enough room in the center for two people to stand
the main bed is 4′ 8 1/2″ off the floor
the reason being you are looking at the train from the side not the top
all electrical power is on one switch that way I leave nothing turned on
the base is Homasote much easer to work with then ply wood
frame is 1″X 4″s I weight 220 pounds and have been up on it
the ridge is wood frame with window screen covered with plaster
five different levels of track
a little change in elevation can make a big difference in looks
I try to give each person on my layout a personality what’s in their head
that way I can make their environment meet their needs

A huge thanks to Al – just loved this layout. And 5 different levels of track too. Wow.
That’s all for today folks. Keep ’em coming.
