“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.
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.
