Bob’s been in touch with his scratch built HO trolley line:
Love all the posts,ideas,and videos from your subscribers.
Every bit of it makes me think of different ways to accomplish various parts of my layout.
Attached are some pics and a video of the Trolley Line that I put on my Basement wall.
It has all hand made houses, trees and the sky background which I also painted.
Lots of people and the businesses are named after various family members. Cathy’s (my wife) Chocolate Chip Cookies, Bob’s Train World etc…)
It is HO scale, runs on DC, ( I also have a 5’ x 10’ HO Train layout that is all DCC)
The Trolley is controlled by a Circuitron AR2 Auto Reverse module coupled to a Circuitron DT-4 module which allows it to stop at intervals designated buy the Opto-Sensors located in the track.
I live in Springfield Pennsylvania, just southeast of Philadelphia, in the good old USA !
I hope you and your readers enjoy my little world!
Thanks for all your hard work!
Loved what Bob has done.
It just goes to show (again!) don’t let lack of space stop you having fun.
And best of all, starting small lets you get your feet wet, and in no time at all, you’ll be hatching plans for the next one.
It’s a great way to go from the armchair, to actually laying track and enjoying yourself.
And now on to another Bob:
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!

That’s all for today folks. A huge thanks to the two Bobs.
In fact, it’s given me an idea, I think I might do a post linking to all the layouts that don’t take up a lot of space.
That’s all for today, folks.
Please don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to have some fun of your own.
