I’ve started my O scale layout which will also have On3 narrow gauge behind it as well. The track bed is lying on the bench work for now, but will be raised about 3 inches when track plan is set. Standard gauge height is 40” and narrow will be 50”.
So far your looking at 9’ 7” with another 5 and a 1/2 feet to go. Simple bench work; 2 by 2” legs and the rest is 1 by 3. I’ll keep you posted as I go along with pics of progress.
Just Uploaded part 3 of changes to my Layout, a few more tips on there, using a wider marker pen for the white lining, also using a puffer bottle for adding grass to cover joints etc.
I did take on board a few comments from part 2 especially about the road width, this has now been changed, bit of luck should finish all this now next week…
Just got the lights and a few of the electrics to do yet .
A big thans Peter and Dave.
Love the approach Peter has taken: secured a place of his own and then some solid planning from the ground up. After reading your posts and updates for years now, I can safely say it’s the right way to go.
And all the hints and tips over the years are all in the the Beginner’s Guide.
That’s all this time folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
