Frank’s been in touch with his 4×8 HO scale train layout:
I enjoy seeing the info you share, but I have never shared my layout with you so here are some pics.
This is a 4×8 that has been in the works for 10 or so years.
I now have it in a loft that is 16×20 and I am building a new layout and this 4×8 will not work into it well at all so I will be dismanteling it in the next few weeks to get started on the new one so I thought I would share some of it with you.
A big thanks to Frank for sharing his 4×8 HO scale train layout.
There’s quite a collection of HO scale layouts on the site now – so I’ve created this page and I’m slowly adding to it:
Now on to Laurence:
thought your readers might like to see my layout.
I started to build it for my grandson last summer, but I’m afraid I got carried away a little bit. The layout is OO on a 6’x4’ plywood base. The tunnel and rocks are made of insulating foam which I found to be great to work with and when painted looks very realistic.
I wanted it to be busy but not overcrowded, so I tried to give enough space for different parts of the layout, ie: quarry, farm, station and manor house.
There’s still more to do, but there always is when you build something like this, you always find that little bit that’s missing. Hope your readers enjoy my efforts.
A huge thanks to Laurence and Frank.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
