Jim’s been busy on his N scale module for his model railroad club:
“Alastair attached are photos of the 2 6foot modules that myself and another member of our model Railroad Club are building.
Still needs more detailing but we do have N Scale trains running.
Our club layout has always been HO so members of our club running N scale were not able to run our trains with these new modules we will be able to and club members can cross these modules with there trains on the upper level.
I have sent a total of 9 photos 3 on this email and 2 more with 3 each
Moose Jaw, SK. Canada”
N scale modules for a HO club – love it!
Now on to Eytan:
I m a newcomer to that game, When I lived in London in the 60-70th, I bought from Hamleys a Fleishmann set.
For 30 years it was laying in an old suitcase.
Cov-19 made me do work at home and I found the suitcase,,,, that was 10 months ago.
I started reading on the internet everything about layouts and how to start.
Your site is my daily teacher and master.
I table is 330cm u shape and 150 deep (on both sides and 80 cm at the centre).
I used only wood from old pallets. I have started building 8×4 feet, but very soon realised that I would not be able to reach all points on the table.
Then I decided to change it to U shape.
not knowing/having a computer programme, I started with my own planning.
I m enclosing my layout without and scenery.
I m sending a few photos.
Many thanks indeed for all I have learned from you
Regards Eytan from Israel”
