I’ve finally begun the new SLO&W.
After 7 years in boxes, I’ve completed all of my new benchwork and laid down about 40% of the track and cork roadbed.
Unfortunately I never made a video of the old layout.
Here are a few photos of my progress on the new layout.
It’s still very much a work in progress.
I will have more updates to share with everyone later.
My theme will be more urban but will still include a trestle and bridge as well as some rockwork and detailed scenery…there will be a lot more structures as there will be more of a focus on switching…the layout’s smaller footprint will limit the size of any trains I can run.
My new layout occupies an area about 14′ x 16′ (the old one was in two rooms each one bigger in area than the new train room).
Now on to Eric (you can see his last post here).
Just a short movie from the rails, Lots of things to see when moving around the layout. So keep your eyes open on the layout, not all the fire memorabilia throughout the room and you might see the recovered Titanic propellers on a flat car, rabbit hunters, robo’s hitching a ride, a signal light that fell over and a foam seam that did not get covered with ground cover.
So watch the clip and keep an eye out.
Thanks Al for all your hard work and all the information that your subscribers share.
