I have been working on the layout for about eleven years. I only run Kato engines and Micro Trains rolling stock. No particular community or railroad. If I like the look of the equipment it gets added. Seeing the trains running is my enjoyment.
In the beginning, I had only DC. Added DCC three years ago. After cleaning up the wiring from all the blocks etc. I had to get rid of some one hundred feet of used wire.
When our local club has a open house I can run three trains at a time.
I also run two HO trains around the perimeter of the room, above the layout. One of these trains leaves the room at one end and comes back a little later at the other end. The kids love this.
A favorite car is a box car that has a camera mounted. Battery pack is in the car. Picture is very good. Better battery life would be great. LED’s are new to me but I’m learning. I have always said that if I understood electricity I would be dangerous…
A big thanks to Sheldon – I do love seeing the personal touches folk add to their layouts: Sheldon’s planes made me smile.
Don’t forget today is the last today you can bag the launch price for the latest engine shed.
John’s ‘how to’ video for the engine shed makes it a fun old project too.
So fair warning – today is the last day for the engine shed discount!
That’s all this time folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
