Have a look at Arnie’s layout.
Not only is he a fantastic modeller – he’s in to photography too. And it shows. Lots.
Hope you enjoy these ones as much as I did.
I’m a relatively recent subscriber to your website. I’m very impressed with both the extent of information being provided by contributors and the no doubt hard work and countless hours you personally have put into making this project and website successful. I have recently been quite impressed with the work and layouts constructed by both new and experienced model railroading hobbiests.
I live in New York and have been an N scale model railroader for many years. I love the pictures folks have submitted of their layouts giving photographic reality to their creations. My layout was constructed about 10 years ago after about 2 years of work on it. Though I continually make small changes at this time (such as landscaping and other scenic details), it is otherwise complete.
Besides running my trains, I love photography and have spent much time taking both photos and videos of my layout. It is 8 feet by 5 feet with operation on two levels and much scenic detail. It has both lighting and sound effects. I am sending a few pictures of a general view of the layout and of some specific scenes taken using photographic backdrops when needed to enhance the realism I seek when taking photos. I hope you enjoy it.
By the way, my layout was featured in N Scale Railroading (May-June 2007 issue) as well as having individual photos published annually in the Walthers N&Z Reference Catalog over the past few years in the section on The Magic of Model Railroading. I hope you enjoy these photos (in low resolution version).
Keep up the great work you’ve been doing through your website. It’s an invaluable contribution to all of us model railroading hobbiests.
A big thank you to Arnie: an amazing layout and amazing pics.
