Tony’s been in touch. He’s used HO model trains cars, and a bit of imagination for a very fun layout:
The task was how to integrate my love of model railways and the grand kids desire to race their model cars around a race track.
Main board is 8’x4’ then extended across window into goods yard and made a loop back to main side.
Please see finished project which has us all happy now!
Love your posts and ideas from members!

A big thanks to Tony for his HO model train cars fun! It’s easy to see why the grands kids love it.
Tony’s also reminded me of Sheldon’s layout – I think the helicopter reminds me of his bi-plane pic.
For me, I like Tony’s (and Sheldon’s) layouts so much because of a very simple point – both layouts have a theme. And for me, that makes the difference.
Readers of the blog will know I’m always banging on about two things:
1) Make a start
2) Have a theme in mind from day one.
It’s the layouts with a theme that always stand out…
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And if today’s the day you start your layout, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
