Andrew’s been in touch again – his last post is here.
Well I moved my railway out of the shed as it was too cold and damp was affecting me and the buildings on my railway, so I decided to bring it in my spare room, so started again.
I am now developing an L shape layout with half a figure of eight with an elevated section on the curve.
The village will be under the elevated section, I am at the moment doing the Station section and I must say it’s coming on well.
I have also reverted back to DC from DCC as it was too expensive. My controller is fitted under my work table as an integrated system. More pics to follow as I develop the sections.
I would welcome comments and suggestions from the plethora of great Modellers out there.
A big thank you to Andrew. I do love seeing the updates – especially as a layout is never really finished.
Andrew’s layout reminded me of John’s viaduct / arches:
Now back on to those backdrops. I few of you have asked to see the earlier ones, so here you are.
I’ll get them on the store as soon as I can (I’ve been meaning to for a while). Do you know, every week I write out an ever growing ‘to do’ list. But nowadays, I’m lucky if I knock 2 or 3 things off the list.
Anyhow here you go.
All the backdrops are 18″ x 144″. To print, just download on to a CD or memory stick, take it to any office stationers (Kinko / Office Max) and print it out on a smooth, self adhesive, vinyl with UV inks and a matte finish.
You can grab a backdrop for just $7, until I get them on to the store.
Oh – and please, please do let me know your thoughts on the backdrops, and what you’d like to see more of.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
