“Hi, several years ago i sent pix of my old layout, I have since moved and building a new HO layout here in Florida. I have less than two months into it so here’s some early pix.
All the buildings you see except for the one with the shops below and apts on top I built myself using balsa wood and pix taken from the internet via google images.
The roadway is convex using wall compound spread with a 3 inch blade. I still have to add an oil streak down the lanes.
The background views were taken from the internet and expanded using print shop as a banner.
The train station I built is in the middle of two 3ft passenger platforms.
I would estimate that after just 2 months work i’m about 20% along. Hundreds of trees to be added and more people. Street lights and telephone poles will be added soon.
System runs on dcc with Bachmann locos.
I will send more as it progresses!
“Hi Al, just uploaded part 4 of my re build on the layout.
In this video I show how I ballast, adding rust to the tracks, and a few tips…
A huge thanks to Joe and Dave.
Joe’s flying along – two months and all this done already. Can’t wait to see more pics.
As for Dave, where does he find the time. He also keeps himself busy with his Koi pond and garden.
That’s all for today, folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
