I wanted to reach out and say how much I enjoy your site and all the great model railroads and tips that are shared on it.
I have always had a love of trains and it started with my grandfathers S gauge trains. When I was a preteen I built and nice layout and operated it for a number of years until just before graduating from high school. I’ve attached some pictures of that HO gauge layout. It’s from the mid 1970’s and the pictures were taken for a local newspaper story on it.
My next layout had to wait many years until the mid 1990’s and then I tried my hand at N gauge. That layout grew until a move necessitated it being torn down. I’ve attached some pictures of pictures of that layout. Sorry for some of the blur.
Here it is now another 20 years later and this winter I’ll start a 4×8 engine yard and switching layout. I love our hobby!
Thank you for your site where we all can share and enjoy each other’s pride and joys!
A huge thanks to Bill for sharing.
I find it quite comforting to know that a first layout is never the last layout.
Please do keep ’em coming folks.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if today is the day you take your first step on that layout you’ve always had in the back of your head.
