Lou has made a start on his double oval HO scale layout:
“Al we’re getting going on a new layout we took down the engage started out with a whole new table we’re going ho this time and fortunately I saved all of my old track and what I had of train.
This is how far I’ve gotten so far and I hopefully it’ll look really cool when we get done will keep in touch with new pics as we go then.
Thank you all
A few photos of my completed lift out “bridge” across the doorway to complete a loop around the layout. It has all the scenery on it including a small “hobo” camp.
The two Photos below show it during the scenery stage on the floor.
Photo below has two hobos walking along a path towards the others just behind the tree to join them for a meal and some music.
The hobos getting ready to settle in and enjoy a meal. The chickens had better stay out of the way if they don’t want to be the meal for tonight.
A bird landing on a branch in a tree to watch the hobos.
Better get a move on old man otherwise we will be late for the meal.
That’s all for now.
Keep up the excellent work Alastair.
Here is a photo of my hornby railroad 08 shunter after I weathered with a wash of grey, black, and brown paint.
Most diesels do look dirty after they have been in service for a while.
A huge thanks to Paul, Brian and Lou.
I know there isn’t much to Lou’s layout at the moment, but I like publishing the ‘work in progress’ layouts for two reasons.
Firstly, this hobby is all about making a start.
And secondly, I do like seeing the choas of a layout before it starts to take shape. All of them, every single one of them, look like that at some point. So if yours does, don’t despair – just crack on.
And also, it’s a double oval HO scale, which seems quite popular.
That’s all for today folks. Please don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if Lou, Brian or Paul have inspired you to get going on your layout.
