Dale’s been in touch with his Christmas model train:
“Most of my trains are from Pennsylvania, Reading and Lehigh Valley. This past year I had six main lines and one bumper car line.
I’ve been putting up layouts since I was six years old. I change it every year but always have the winter scenes.
Now on to Boyd:
I wanted to take the opportunity to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and all the best for the new year.
Also, a Merry Christmas to all the folks out there that contribute to and enjoy your daily posts.
As mentioned in my last note, I do not get much work done on the layout over the Summer months, and the Honey Do, Daddy Do and Grampie Do lists have kept me busy all fall.
Most of the projects on those lists are now complete, so I hope to get moving again on the next big section, which will include my first attempt at a water feature.
I did manage to get a couple more scenes to the point where they are good enough for now, I’ll circle back for more detailing at some point.
This is the section that leads into the quarry area, it sits above the tunnel exit shown in the next couple photos. I had originally placed some deciduous trees here, but decided it made more sense to continue the evergreens down the mountain, so out with the old and in with the new.
Some scenery details added to the tunnel exit area.
Thanks again for all you do to support the hobby, and hopefully I will have something to submit by Spring.
I can’t wait to see Boyd’s next update his layout is one of my faves – have a look and you’ll see why, his lasp post is here:
Now on to Rob, who has sent in his annual Christmas video.
What I liked about most about it, is he included the pics from his London trip.
And it’s that trip that gave him the inspiration for this stunning addition to his layout:
A big thanks to Rob, Boyd and to Dale for sharing his Christmas model train.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And if today is the day you get started on your layout, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
