I’m still in detailing mode for my 4×8 HO Scale Switching Layout.
I finally won a great deal on EBay and picked up well over 100 figures. A lot of them are passengers and town folks but enough were workers so my layout is coming to life.
Since the layout is built on foam board I decided to super glue a track nail to the bottom of one foot on each person. After that dried I decided where I wanted the figure then I used a craft pin to make a starter hole then pushed the figure/nail into the pilot hole. It worked very well and they are easy to reposition if I decide to do something different.
This weekends project is detailing inside the repair shops. Some details I will affix to the floor and others I will leave loose.
I picked up some figures welding and I have LED welding kits so I’m looking to install those in between enjoying nice summer weather this weekend and next. I also will start putting the frame together on the next 4×8 section.
I had an epiphany on how to do something interesting with the track work that will go on it. I’ll show all when I get started on putting the track down to test my idea.
All the Best to you and fellow modelers

A huge thanks to Bill -what an update.
He’s done a lot to his scenery since his last update. Stunning stuff. Can’t wait for next one!
Hope you enjoyed Bill’s latest as much as I did.
That’s all for today folks. Apart from an apology to Bob, because I called him Bill in his last post. I have fixed that now.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to make that start on your layout.
