“Hi Al, I made a terrible mistake in late summer in visiting a local Model Railway Exhibition.
Well that did it, I just had to make another one.
It’s just to show how a small 5ft x 3ft model railway can have as much detail and interest as a large one without being over cluttered with too many buildings Ect.
As you can see it’s single track with two sidings, one leading to an engine shed. The Points are electrically operated and the buildings are lit with LEDs. A few street lights were added to give surrounding area a bit of light.
The tunnel was made using insulation foam with a river and several waterfalls flowing into a river made from epoxy resin.
I’ve Used copper tape for the wiring as I find it keeps thing really tidy under the board and although it sticks really well I put a bit of glue on the ends and corners using a glue gun as a bit of insurance.
I hope this Layout will be of some use to your readers and maybe give them a few ideas for their own Layout.
I’m sorry this has to be in two parts but files are too big for one email.
Keep up the good work Al, love seeing other modelers Layouts.
A huge thanks to Laurence. Loved this little layout – it has bags of charm.
Over the last week or so we’ve had so many different layouts that just goes to show:
1) Your layout can be anything you want it to be.
2) There are no rules.
3) You can build one over weeks or years.
4) And are they ever finished?
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to start on your very own layout.
