Henry has been in touch with is model railroad diorama ho scale:
Thank you for your continued service to the model railway fraternity.
I look forward to your emails every day.
This email is a little different from my usual, as it does not show my layout, but a model railway diorama I was asked to build for a lady whose husband was a collector of South African model trains.
He sadly passed away, and he had gathered some items to build a display for one of his locomotives.
He never got to build it, and now his wife had asked me if I would build the diorama for her to display his favourite locomotive.
I include a few pictures of the diorama. I added a few details of my own, like the pigeon on the telephone pole and the cart with the milk churns.
I also replaced the incandescent bulbs in the signal with LED’s and wired it up to work.
I routered out a space in the wood to place a 9v battery and installed a centre off toggle switch, so the signal can be turned to red, green or off altogether.
Now to Hall of Fame member, Rob.
He’s shared his latest video on track laying:
This time I packaged up all the track laying wisdom I have learned over the last 12 years of building layouts and laying track.
In all I pass along 12 items of experience. It has proven very popular on my channel. I hope your readers can find a nugget or two that will help them.
Thanks to Rob.
And a very big thanks to Henry for sharing his model railroad diorama ho scale – it has a touching back story.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
