Dean’s been in touch with another instalment on his Scenic Ridge layout:
“This is the seventh video in an 8-part series discussing my construction of the N-Scale Scenic Ridge layout (kit from Woodland Scenics).
The layout is 3 feet by 6 feet in size.
In this session, I will discuss the buildings I’m adding to the layout and construction of roads and streets.
We’re coming to almost the end of this series as I plan on having only one more main video on final scenery (grass and ground cover, trees, coloring rocks, ballast the track, etc).
Here are some photos of the overall layout and of the buildings.
Al, thanks for all your support and help in this endeavor. Cheers!
And, finally, the video.
A big thanks to Dean for sharing his update on his Scenic Ridge layout – I know a layout is never finished but it looks like he’s getting close.
If you want to see his last post (on mountains), it’s right here.
Now on to Ross:
Attached photo is a S-534 Locomotive ‘Bakewell’ on static display, since 1976, at the Perth Western Australia Rail Terminal.
The loco was built in 1943 (with 9 others) at the Western Australian Government Railways (WAGR) workshops in Midland Junction where my father worked for 44 years only interrupted by 4 years in the UK during WW2.
Just 3 remain in static condition around Australia.
With best wishes
Now on to Nick – who sent this track plan in after a post – but it got lost in the cracks:
Many thanks for your kind comments!
Please post the following replies to comments posted:-
To Roger: Thanks for your comments. I am in fact English from the London area but now live in Canada.
My son was a train fanatic, never missing an opportunity to travel on real ones, so the rolling stock I bought represented trains he had travelled on – Network South East and Eurostar!
To Michael: Thanks for your comments. Hornby track plan attached
To Dangerous Dave: I do have a bit of a derailment issue at the bottom of the short gradient.
I didn’t have enough room to put in the correct gradient angle so it will only allow a small tank engine with one car to travel on it, otherwise rolling stock derails! Any advice would be much appreciated.
That’s all for today folks – please do keep ’em coming.
Please just email me if you’d like to share anything.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if today is the day you start on your own layout.
