Joe live in Florida – but he’s made a very British model railway:
My Story Part 3
I have appreciated your website over the years and its ability to share this wonderful hobby with all modelers worldwide.
I started this hobby, at the age of 12 or 13. It was an off and on project. I finally got it all together when I lived in England.
I then began again moving to Minnesota, then again, moving to Tampa, Florida. I finally finished it, but as a model railroader, you are really never finished.
I hope you enjoy my photos and video of my lifelong hobby that is provided me with an outlet for my creativity and relaxation.
I finally completed my total rewiring for DCC. I should have done this a long time ago.
I purchased a back scene from you (Alastair) and installed it by wallpapering it on a 6’ x 16“ Masonite board. Below is the before and after…
What a difference!
Added a 2’ x 16” back scene Masonite board on the side…

I think the same people are there in the daytime? Great Pub

Enjoy the video and put the sound up.
A huge thanks to Joe.
If you want to see part 2 of his layout, it’s here. It’s worth revisiting because you really get a sense of how Joe put this layout together.
(The backdrops he mentions are on the bottom of this post.)
That’s all for this time.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And if you want to make a start, just like Joe did in his previous post, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
