It’s been a while since I’ve written you.
Thanks for keeping this going, it’s great inspiration to see everyone’s work.
Last time I sent you my layout I explained that my layout is an homage to my youth, it’s filled with family tie ins, friends, and reminders of trains as a youth.
The layout is 14’ x 26’ with one side housing the mythical towns of Buffalo Creek, Walden, and Brighton.
The other side has Lackawanna and Little Italy. The two yards are Bison and Frontier. All of these features are reminiscent of Buffalo and Western New York.
There is a long “story” that I wrote before building this, and if you are interested I’d love to send it to you. Here are some pictures of my layout.
I’m an architect by education and practice. These pictures are more focused on the layout work, not the trains.
A huge thanks to John – now, I may be mistaken, but I think this is James’s first post.
Now on to a blast from the past with Dangerous Dave:
well back home after a holiday and back to the layout, glad to hear you have decided to continue with your site.
I have just loaded this video showing how I have added new track, ballasted, adding rust to rails, and adding scenics, all done within a week, so easily done by most modellers without having to crash the bank balance and not a lot of elbow grease…
A couple of pictures here to show the difference when scenics added to the track work ..showing before and after.
How I did it:
Latest ebay cheat sheet is here (It goes mad this time of year – have a look.)
That’s all for today folks.
A huge thanks to James and Dave. Some great pics today.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And please don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to start your model railway fun today.
