Peter’s been in touch with his O scale rail yard.
(If you missed his stunning O scale post, it’s here.)
He’s been kind enough to send in a few more pics and a short vid:
“Thanks for posting Al, and such nice comments!!
Couple more pics here and, two short video clips of engines running at scale speed through a yard.
Usually in the real world, around 10 to 20 MPH tops.
The trick and tedious job is to get these brass engines to run smoothly with the Dynatrol system.
the narrow gauge bridge module I sent you before, will be along that back wall when it’s painted sky blue.
Thought I’d send along some pictures of my attic n scale layout that is under reconstruction.
The Fairfield & Cheston Railroad is based on a railroad from Pennsylvania USA. It had operations that began in the 1800s in Gettysburg. Eventually it was merged into CSX in the 1970s. I am modeling the mid century period. This is a DCC system. The layout is 13′ x 5′.
My layout originally started as a 4 x 4 layout when I lived in Virginia. It grew every time I moved.
This is a husband and wife operation. My wife constructs buildings and does landscaping while I do the construction, track work and electronics. We both get what we want of this hobby. We are in the process of setting operations using computer control of the Zephyr DCC system.
Hope you find this interesting enough to post.
A big thanks to Peter for sharing his O scale rail yard, and to Yale too.
All these years on and I still love seeing what is going to pop up in inbox.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And if today is the day you feel life is slipping by without the fun, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
PPS More N scale layouts here if that’s your thing.
