Heinrich has very kindly sent in more pics of his superb HO South African model trains.
If you missed his last post, it’s here.
One thing I’m always banging on about is a theme – the layouts that have a theme from day one, are always the layouts that seem to turn out the best.
And I think that really shows with Heinrich’s layout.
He’s in South Africa and he’s based it on the South African scenery and surroundings.
But the wonderful thing about this hobby is you can pick any theme you like – it’s entirely up to you.
It’s just one of the things that make this hobby so fun.
If you look at Heinrich’s earlier posts, you’ll also so how every layout starts by looking no more than choas on a table or bench.
Then, slowly, it morphs into your theme and takes shape.
Again, perhaps another wonderful thing about this hobby is that you go at your own pace, whatever that may be.
And of course, a layout is never really finished – there is always something to change or do, so just enjoy the journey.
Here are a couple of pics of my complete layout, sans the electronic signals and control panel.
A huge thanks to Heinrich for sharing his South African model trains – what a layout!
That’s all for today folks – please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to make that start, just like Heinrich did.
