Scott has shared his model railroad layout.
He’s been kind enough to send in pics, and a video of his layout in its early days.
I thought it worth posting, because it just goes to show it’s all about making a start:
“Alastair. Some of the comments asked to see track plans. Here are some early days on the layout without scenery.
You’ll remember from his last post that his layout is approximately 100 square feet with two layouts connecting from inner to outer.
His inner layout is from an old Atlas book with 18 radius turns and the outer was freelanced.

“My wife thinks I went a little overboard as now I have the 4X16 HO switching layout and the 3X15 N scale layout and I’m in the planning stage of a 4.5X12 O and ON3O layout.
For the HO layout I have scenery basically finished and now I’m going into detail mode and will be weathering cars and engines and finishing up a variety of small projects. While it’s mostly done it’s never done and Ive been enjoying operating the layout.
“I have something to show everyone: my ballast Despenser. An 0-4-0 loco hauls the wagon and ballast falls out the bottom on to track.
How to build:
Drill along the under side of the wagon so you have a long narrow hole from side to side.
Then add ramps so ballast goes out the hole. Couple to your loco, fill with ballast then go!
A huge thanks to Iwan and Scott.
Still love seeing your pics and tips after all these years. Please, please do keep ’em coming. Just email them in to me.
That’s all for today folks.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get going, just like Scott did.
