Starting with a bit of housekeeping today.
Some people have asked me why I have stopped mailing them. The simple answer is I haven’t, and nor would I.
But, if one day, you stop getting my mails, it’ll simply be because you haven’t whitelisted my email address, and your ISP may think I’m spam.
Easiest thing to do is whitelist my email address – then you’ll always get my mails.
If you google how to do it, you’ll see it only takes a second to do.
Now back on to trains:
Following up on my email yesterday, here are three photos of my 68″X68” HO layout. These pictures give an over view of the layout which include a country fair, a small airport, an auto racetrack and grandstand, and a tunnel with a station on the top.
I’m thinking that a monorail running over the layout would be a fun addition… but have not been able to find such a product.
I have three trains running…..
#1. A Marklin vintage model with a 3020 locomotive & passenger cars from 1947-1954
#2. A Marklin intermodal train which circles the airport.
$3. A Bachmann “The General” which runs on an elevated figure 8 track.
I just placed my order. I hope I can get some inspiration to take this to great places.
I know some of you are often puzzled when I post pics of a layout that hasn’t taken shape yet.
But for me, it’s the whole point of this hobby: creating something from nothing.
Looking at one hell of a mess and then scratching your head over wiring is all part of the process. Every layout you have ever seen, at one point, was a rat’s nest of wires, tools, track and profanities.
All you have to do is make a start because no layout happens overnight.
A huge thanks to Phil for sharing and I wish him well.
And who can help with his monorail idea?
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
