One or two of you have been in touch saying they have sent pics in, but not seen them posted, or even heard back from me.
If that’s you, I can explain.
Most people send their pics in by attaching them to an email.
But I’ve noticed over the years, if you send me more than 3 pics in one mail, I don’t get them.
They just disappear in the ether.
Sadly, some people think I’ve chosen not to post their layouts.
This is not the case! This blog is for everyone. It’s just that I never received them.
So if you’re sending stuff in, please just mail me, but don’t send in more than 3 pics per mail.
Send as many mails as you like to get all your pics across.
Hope that makes sense.
Now on to Joe:
“Hi, several years ago i sent pix of my old layout, I have since moved and building a new HO layout. 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!
Jeff’s a man of few words but look what he’s put together in such a small space:
“Here are some pictures of my layout.
As you can see I don’t have a lot of space to work with, but I made the best out of what I have.
“Hi Al ,
just bought a new mini cam its the Mobius, and just a bit better in clarity than the old one, but after having that for 6/7 years now its given up the ghost (as they say ).
So splashed out and bought a new one, same camera but as viewers will se maybe that bit better than the old one.
No doubt will be spending more time in the loft with my Railway and making use of this little Gem…
A big thanks to Joe, Jeff and Dave.
Please do keep ’em coming.
If you’d like to share something, just hit reply to any of my mails to get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
That’s all for today folks.
Don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to get going on your own layout.
