Wayne’s been in touch with his elevated model train track.
I really do like what he’s done – his layout, his rules: a red and yellow background, dinosaurs, a volcano, lions, a constuction site, airport, battle scenes…
I’ll bet the grandsons enjoy the layout almost as much as Wayne:
Been following you off and on for several years now.
Really enjoy all the ideas and content submitted by all the RR enthusiasts out there!
Over the last 6 years I’ve built 4 layouts starting at 4’x8′ and up to this 18’x11′ lay-out.
I didn’t build a theme on this as well as my previous layouts. They were made to impress my 2 grandsons…and me too 😉. Basically, I just let my imagination go as I was creating this layout.
In this layout there is close to 400 feet of track. 3 tracks on the base and 2 elevated tracks.
The 5 train tracks are all separate and controlled by an NCE Power Cab.
I put together all the plastic model buildings. There are quite a few handmade wooden buildings that were all created from scratch. They were all made by my Dad when he built me a train set when I was 8 years old (I’m now 65).
I built all the red/yellow/blue risers for the 2 elevated levels. I had fun creating the airport. It is in honor of a close friend who is a mechanic for American Airlines.
Instead of painting mountains, etc. for the background, I decided to paint the red and blue background. I think it makes the entire layout stand out.
Thanks so much for what you do! Take care!!
A big thanks to Wayne for sharing his elevated model train track – it looks like he’s having great fun with his layout and grandsons, and that’ what it’s all about.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
