I have two layouts for you in today’s missive: Ron’s HO layout, and below that, the suitcase layout!
“I completed this layout this past holiday season.
It is a 4X8 HO layout built and planned for expansion. I built this with the idea of selling it as my joy is in the building and seeing the finished product.
It is foam over a wood frame and very light weight. The scenery is all hard shell plastercloth, with both molded and sculped rock and features made from light weight Hydrocal.
It is entirely painted and covered with landscaping materials.
All builings were built,kitbashed and aged. Some are scratch built, such as the lumber yard,covered bridge,etc. As soon as this sells I will start the expansion or a new design.
This is wired so that it can be used as DC or DCC Quite easily.
Hope enjoyed Ron’s HO layout as much a I did, now on to CW:
Attached are pics of my “Train in a suitcase”. I have now sold it, but I am still working on another, larger layout for both analog and digital operation. Hopefully I will soon be able to send you some more pictures of my current venture.
Big thanks to Ron for sharing his HO layout. I do enjoy the 4×8 HO train layouts.
One last thing – there’s a glue question on the forum. Can anyone help?
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
