George has been in touch with his Old West model trains:
He’s a man of few words, but his pics made me smile:
“My 1st humble attempt at a HO layout…all scratch buildings.
George’s layout reminded me of Mike’s Wild West model train layout.
It’s another example of how important it is to choose a theme for your layout before you get busy.
I know I keep saying it, but the layouts which have a clear theme from day one, are always the ones that turn out the best, by a country mile.
For me this hobby is all about picking a theme and making a start – that’s it!
It doesn’t matter how much you mull over and ponder your layout, unless you roll sleeves up and get going, nothing happens…
A big thanks to George for sharing his Old West model trains.
Whenever I see a wild west layout I always think of the Saloon in the printable scenery, which is at the bottom of this post.
One day I’ll get round to putting them all in the same place. It’s been on my to-do list for a year or two now.
That’s all for today folks, please do keep ’em coming.
