I’ve been enjoying your site for a number of years now and noticed that a lot that has been published have been very large model railways.
Although they are absolutely brilliant models not everybody has the room for a large layout. Also I feel it’s a bit daunting for someone new to this
I’ve included a few photos of two builds I’ve done to show being small doesn’t have to be a boring flat layout.
The first pictures are on a base of 5ft x about 3ft 3” with the sidings.
The second is 5ft x 3ft I built for a severally mentally handicaped young lad. It was built to keep it simple as not to confuse him with points, lights and switches ect.
Although it’s quite basic with a tunnel and water fall gives it that little bit more interest. With this size layout I put on castors so it can be slid under a
single bed when not in use.
I hope these few photos can give a few people some inspiration to give it a go. With a bit of imagination and possibly the help of your “How To” book there’s no limit to what they can achieve.
A huge thanks to Bill – he really does demonstrate something I’m always banging on about: it’s not lack of space that stops people creating a layout, it’s lack of imagination. You’ve just got to roll your sleeves up and have some fun.
And now on to something completely different…
Months ago, I ran a silly sale on a huge bundle of print-out scenery. I did this because I was going to change a few things on the site, and I was going to get rid off the all the bundles.
But this never happened – I had my hands full with moving the site over to a secure server.
So now I’m back to where I’m started, but before I get going on rejigging the site I thought I’d give you the chance to grab the silly deal again, to those who want it.
Have a look at how many buildings you get – for just $29. Like I said, it’s a very silly price (but only until Sunday)
That’s all for today folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
