“Al….Your emails have been a great influence on me. I have been collecting European N guage houses and rolling stock for some 35 years, always saying “Some day I’m going to build ‘my train’ “. My wife and my children never thought it would happen. After studying Dave’s videos and the Woodland Scenics book for what seemed ages, I finally decided to begin. Here are photos of my progress so far.
The support is the old pennisula from a recent kitchen remodel. I took the counter top off and added two small furniture dollies underneath.
As this project is in the garage, that gives me the convenience of moving the whole platform into the center of the garage so I can work around it instead of bending over it. And I have drawers and cabinets to keep “stuff” in. The base layer of the layout is 2 inch insulating foam from the local hardware store. The rest, so far, is styrofoam from Woodland Scenics and bits and pieces that I have been saving for months. So far it is all held together with hot glue!
I will send more photos as my work progresses.
Bill – can’t wait to see the next update. What a start!
That’s all this time, folks. Thanks for the comments on the ebay cheat sheet. Latest one is here.
