Here’s my layout so far.
It’s a 4×8 HO scale and everything is scratch built down to the flocking except for the trees. Made my own flock, rocks, bridges, everything.
Here you see what will be a cascading waterfall cantilevering over the tracks in which the train will go behind. The waterfall cascades into the pond in which there will be a shipwrecked Gilligans Island SS Minnow on it with 7 figurines representing the castaways, a lurking monster in the waterfall and fishermen of course. The pond sits behind the dam which forms the stream and gorge.
Here is the bridge I made from balsa wood.
I have some thoughts tho. I didn’t allow for a big enough yard because I thought it would be too cluttered by the time I added buildings and such. I don’t know just yet. I’m making all of this up as I go along.
I’m still considering adding a branch line where you can see I have cars sitting there with no tracks.
Anyway, I will send a video when I can and I will continue to give updates.
Any helpful suggestions from your readers would be a ginormous help.
There’s something about someone talking through their layout that brings it all to life.
That’s all this time folks, a huge thanks to Cal.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here, if you want to follow Cal’s lead, and get going on your layout.
