You’ll remember Bill from his HO switching layout.
His last post is here – but now he’s busy on his N scale:
I hope you are doing well in these continuing days of uncertainty. My work is still restricting travel so I have had plenty of time each day to enjoy going to the garage and working on both layouts.
I enjoy switching on my HO Scale layout and I have been making much progress on the N Scale layout I started a couple of months back.
For the 3×15 N Scale I wanted continuous running and I landed on a single track main that loops around so in some areas it looks like a double track main line.
This one is DCC and I have a small assortment of engines running on it already. Like the HO Scale layout I quickly got tired of looking at pink foam board so I already have some scenery in place to make it look more visually interesting.
I’ve attached some pictures showing some of the progress since the last video showing how I made the space saving benchwork.
I used 1.5 inch foam board as my base and left overs for scenery shapes. I’ve included a link to the most recent video I took this past week.
The scenery is made from foam board covered in mesh drywall tape. This is then covered in sculptamold and then areas of that is covered by plaster of Paris and then carved into rock faces.
I topped off the scene with plenty of trees and ground cover.
All in all I’m staying busy enjoying the layout! Never does one get board with our hobby as there is always fun things to do 😀

A huge thanks to Bill. It’s great when I see his name in my inbox – I know we are in for a treat.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
