Mike gets cracking again

Some of you will remember Mike, who builds a new layout every year for a show.

Here’s his second last post, when he’s still on the thick of it.

And here’s the finished article.

So I can’t wait to see what his latest creation will end up looking like. Here’s where he’s up to so far:








I’ll finish today with a few words about the stone wall embankment. It’s proved a real hit – so thank you for all the kind comments and emails.

Don’t forget, this offer won’t last forever, I really do need pull my finger out and get the buildings on the site.

That’s all this time folks. And if Mike and Keith haven’t inspired you to get started, the Beginner’s Guide might… but you’ll never know until you decide to roll your sleeves up and get involved.

That’s all this time folks.

Please do keep ’em coming.

    Hi Keith,
    Keep us up to date as it goes, very interesting and I’m really envious of your “Room” for the layout.

    Keith and all other modelers….your skill at carpentry always amazes me. I pray every night that my layout won’t collapse. I built my HO layout using horses that I used for my Christmas Lionel layout which I took down every year. I have leveling issues I am always grappling with, nothing I can’t remedy, but a more solid foundation would have been better. Always learning from you guys.

    Keith :the [ L ] brackets should have been turned under structure attached to bed then up the inside of structure in my opinion.
