Bills been back in touch again, with his never ending railroad.
If you missed it, his first post is here.
“Some more pictures of the never ending railroad.
I model in N Scale and after an absence of 25 or more years I have retired and have found space in our new home to get new construction underway.
To keep costs down and minimise the carpentry needed, I’ve used Ikea tables which are hollow core (like internal door construction) and foam topping.
Some – like in the main tunnel – is insulation (XPS) foam and the balance is just packing foam. Most of this was liberated from dumpsters at local shopping centres.
I also used Woodland Scenics inclines and risers to make it a bit smoother to get into the mountain and down the other side. All track is Kato. I picked up a lot of this on a visit to Japan in 2018. (A visit to the Kato shop and factory in Tokyo is a must see!)
Coming up for 6 months work now, and I have attached a few progress photos. Some of your kits are sprinkled around the mountain. Others can be seen in bridge abutments and retaining walls.
Lots more to do – so back to the grindstone. The printer is starting to run hot!
A huge thanks to Bill and Ken.
Loved Ken’s mountains – it looks like he’s thoroughly enjoyed every minute of his layout. And that’s what it’s all about.
That’s all this time folks, but don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if it’s your time to shine.
