Michael’s been in touch with his 6×9 N scale:
First I want to thank you for sending all of those great pictures and very helpful info on DIY projects for our railroads.
Without your help and time that you take, we (the e-mail subscribers) would be unable to complete our designs with the very useful tips and other info passed on by all great the readers. Your tips and hints passed on to others are a very important part of our railroad building experience. Thank you so very much for helping others to make this an enjoyable hobby.
Enclosed are a few pictures of the start of my N Scale layout.
It will measure 6′ 6″ in length x 9′ 0″ wide, it is being assembled in 3 – 6′ 6″ overall length x 3′ depth sections (for ease of movement).
The back section (shown below) has 2 tunnels and a long double track bridge between the 2 tunnels. A small river connects the lake to a triple waterfall area surrounded by handmade trees from green filter furnace, Elmer’s glue and wooden bamboo squire sticks painted brown.
More to follow, thanks again for your wonderful website!
“Hi Al, more or less finished this big change now, just needs the Ballast painting and the track with the rust, maybe the odd tweak here and there…
I have shown some very reasonably priced signal lights which I found on ebay… also shown how I started back in 2007 when I retired… so no excuses, never too old to start.. and a hobby which gives us all many hours of fun.
A huge thanks to to Michael and Dave. Just goes to show – again – it’s all about making a start.
That’s all this time folks. Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to take the plunge and get going on your layout.
