you have not heard from me before but I have been receiving your messages for years now and looking at the tips and layouts that people have sent to you from near and far, and found them inspiring and helpful in many ways.
I had always wanted to build a model railway since I was a kid but didn’t have the money way back then and the room and time as work and family life took me through my middle years, but a recent move from house to bungalow due to my wife’s ill health has given me a place at the bottom of the garden to be able to try my hand at doing it.
I do love building it but often wonder if I will ever get it finished, I have been working on it for about 3 years now on and off and there is only the close family who have seen it.
I have taken photos at different stages except for the building of the baseboard track and electrics, so after a good 60 years of waiting, I am about a third of the way through and would like to share some photos of my efforts so far. its a long way from being finished, but I keep chipping away as and when I can.
These photos are at the starting of it all, more will follow until its up to date, if that’s ok.
Thanks to all who send you their tips and photo/videos.
And thanks to you Al for your world wide information.
And another Brian – hall of fame Brian – has also been in touch again:
“Here is my first video using the new camera. Excuse the fallen down figures, the unpainted dozer driver, the fence that was nocked over, this is only seen after the video was taken. I have edited out the end part. There are parts of the video where the track seems a bit rough but that is logging for you.
A huge thanks to Brian and Brian!
That’s all for today, folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
And if you want to do more than think about starting your layout, why not grab the Beginner’s Guide and make it happen?
