Nich’s been back in touch with his N scale door layout.
And if I’m not mistaken, his first post is here.
He’s onto his second, and here it is:
Not quite sure what to write so I give you some bare bones:
This is my second layout. I learnt a lot about track laying from the first.
DC layout as I was having problems remembering what was what in programming DCC on the last layout.
This time I used all peco track mainly flexi but set track for some curves and peco points.
Layout again N scale door layout with the underside cut away for easy access for wiring.
30mm kingspan PVA’ed to the baseboard.
All raised areas built from expanding foam and reshaped.
Gaugemaster controller built into the hill.
Handmade points switch panel fitted with cdu.
Points and controller fitted with independent transformers.
All layout covering ( ballasting, roads and grass) handmade from coloured sawdust.
Building second handoff eBay. Most altered to fit in with my layout.
Engine shed scratched built from card.
Lighting powered but flat batteries.
If you would like more details on a particular bit please ask. I will send the photos bu google photos. Feel free to use as you like
A huge thank you to Nich for sharing his N scale door layout from the very start.
Door layouts are popular size for an obvious reason – the ‘table’ is easy if you have an old door lying about.
It reminds me of Michael’s N scale on a door
Nich also had some wise words – his first layout was a learning curve, and that’s what it’s all about, getting started.
You can think as hard as you like, but unless you put some track down and get going, nothing happens.
Just get going and enjoy it.
I do love seeing a table or door covered in chaos and slowly morphing into a work of art. Loved his water scene too.
Hope you enjoyed today’s as much as me.
Please do keep ’em coming.
Here’s a load more N scale layouts if you’re after those.
Or perhaps you are undecided and over HO or N scale?
Either way, don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to get going on your own layout.
