“Al, Here are several pictures of my layout.
It’s built over top of a pool table. The bottom part is fixed with the top on many small castors so it can slide back and forth so I can get under neither to the bus and feeder wires.
My HO gauge layout is 6′ x 10′ and I can roll it in one direction 5′ and I run into a wall, 6 the other way and there is a sliding glass door.
There are two separate tracks, one I call the “red” line is surface mounted and is giving me trouble with shorts.
The other “green” line is elevated 5 to 8 inches and has not been wired or ballast yet.
The “green” line will have a passenger train which will stop at a train station to let passengers on and off.
The “red” line will be a freight line and will stop at a gravel building for a load of gravel. I have built out of sight in the gravel building a small motor with a remote control to move a gate back and forth to release a load of gravel stored in the building to a freight car below.
The layout called “Johnstown” will have a business section and a residential section.
Now on to Stan – here’s why I’m always banging on about the print out scenery. It looks great, and its a lot of fun as well:
With all the help I get from the videos on your site. This is my first scene. I still need a lot to learn . I am happy with how this looks.
Thanks for all you do on the site.
Stan from the Carolinas y’all”
It’s wonderful to see the print out scenery on a layout. Stan’s done a cracking job.
