We’re starting with Allen today because today’s post is all about starting a model train layout.
He’s shared pics of something I am always banging on about: making a start.
It’s probably the most important part of any layout.
You can sit there day dreaming, cogitating or planning – but until you grab a table and start putting track down, it’s all pie in the sky.
That’s why I happily post pics and narratives of half built layouts (and it’s also good to see the journey – I do love an update).
Just remember, it’s the start that stops most people when it comes to a model railroad.
Take Allen, for example. There’s not a lot to see on his layout so far, but he’s made that start. He’s up and running!
i am sending a couple pictures of my ho model railroad i have most of the track layed and now the hardest part the scenery!
Now on to Henry:
Thank you for your daily emails, I always look forward to seeing them pop up in my inbox.
I have added names to all the towns represented on my layout, and in one of the small towns, semaphore signals are still in operation, so I had to add some LED lights so that it can be seen during the night time too.
The semaphore signals have a red and green lens, so depending on the position of the blade, the light either shows danger/red and when the blade is in the raised (upper quadrant) position, it shows green.
I would like to share a few photos and a video tour of my layout.
A big thanks to Henry and Allen who have shown what starting a model train layout is all about – stop dreaming, start doing!

That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
