Cary has sent in this missive of his O scale model railroad after being reminded of George’s O scale, and how fun they are with the little people.
I’ve been following your site for several years and never sent you anything to post.
Just watched a video on your site today of George’s very nice layout for his grand kids.
I got back to the model railroad hobby about six years ago after an almost 30 year pause ( except a Lego layout with trains I worked on for around 10 years ago ).
I started back in the hobby by purchasing a DCC locomotive and some Kato track set up on a small shelf board just switching track, no scenery, buildings, ect.
I was hooked, that evolved to a 4ft X 19ft single line HO layout.
After a couple years I decided to build an O scale for the kids.
George’s post prompted me to send you this 4ft X 8ft O scale layout for the great grand kids.
Later I’ll send a short video of the kids playing and running the trains.
Thanks for all you do to encourage the model railroading hobby.

I have enjoyed seeing others layouts from your emails for years. I have just complete my two level O-scale layout taking about 3 years on and off.
My layout is not a single place and time but more so a collection of memories or places/buildings I really liked.
Over the past three 3 years I have acquired road names engines and rolling stock the ran through Saint Louis, Missouri USA.
A big thanks to Cary for sharing his O scale model railroad, and to Jim too.
It just goes to show (again!) model trains and family stuff go hand in hand.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you wan to get going on your very own layout.
