Dominic’s been in touch with his 12×24 HO scale layout:
“I started this project 4 1/2 years ago when I relocated to Michigan and bought a home with a basement and much more room than I originally had.
So I had a 12×24 HO scale area in the basement to do something with, as long as I didn’t take away from my wife’s storage area. A much larger area than my original 4×6 layout.
So with some planning, but with no particular track plans in mind, and wanting a little bit of everything, it was a plan as you go project in the making.
And this is what I’ve come up with so far.
It was suppose to be my winter project, but with the winters being so long in Michigan, it turned out to be my project 8 months out of the year.
The trestle bridges were all scratch built which was a challenge but the mission was accomplished.

I’m not what you would call an out and out cheapskate but I do look for value and I always look for another way to do things and usually come up with an acceptable solution.
Can’t say as I am doing so well with my waterfall and stream.
Nothing against Woodland Scenics as they do have some great things. However, I am committed to doing water scenes without their help. Should I surrender or are there some really great ideas out there?
A huge thanks to Dominic. An absolute monster of a layout – I loved it. It really looks like 4 1/2 years of work too. And who can help Russ?
That’s all for today, folks. If Dominic’s got you champing at the bit to get started, the Beginner’s Guide is here
