“Al…Bob in Texas here.
I wanted to share a brief update on my N scale layout.
Like so many of the contributors to your blog, the limiting factor for my layout was space, more precisely, not enough of it. But things do have a way of changing.
Our youngest daughter, Samantha, recently graduated from high school and left for university.
Before she left, she offered me part of her bedroom as an annex for my office. I think she was afraid we would rent her bedroom to boarder…ha, ha! I now have additional space in office to expand my layout.
I mentioned in my original post that I try to incorporate trestle bridges in my layout as much as possible.
From the first time I saw the black and white photograph, I have been fascinated by the Two Mountain Creek timber trestle bridge on the Great Northern Railway in Montana. I believe it was constructed sometime around the turn of the century.
With all my new-found space, I decided to incorporate my interpretation of this amazing structure into my layout. I hope you enjoy the photographs.
Now that I have room to grow, I’m sure I will be sending more updates.
Thanks again Al for all your hard work. It is much appreciated.
Until next time,
Bob in Texas”
You’ll remember Bob’s N scale – it’s bit of a stunner. Here’s just one of the pics of his layout:
If you’d like to see all of Bob’s pics from the last post, they are right here.
What’s more, shortly afterwards, Bob was kind enough to talk us through his layout in another post, which is here.
I do so enjoy seeing all your layouts expand, grow and change over the months and years.
It just goes to show, a layout is never really finished…
Some of your contributors send photos of their excellent electric wiring, all neat and tidy.
This might be a bit intimidating and could worry anyone new to the hobby, on a limited budget or lacking electrical experience.
Just in case anyone has concerns here are some photos of the spaghetti of electric wiring of my latest DC layout.
It has taken me 4 layouts to get them this well organised.

Now on to Hall of Fame member, Dave:
just uploaded this video as a weekend special, good few Loco`s with various stock all turning out to get the passengers to the seaside, even Tonys is operating fully again now…
That’s all for today folks.
A big thanks to Bob, Dave and Andrew.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to make that start.
