Tom’s been in touch again. Have a look at what he’s been busy doing.
“N scale 3 feet by 5 feet layout.
What I have been working on this past year is bring my plan to life.
Using woodland water I built the rapids and the water fall area.
All my building are card stock and I am presently looking to replace them because I believe I can do a better job framing them.
The other thing I learned is the size of the curves. Being a first timer – I wish I would have used curve track vice bending my own. The reason I would like a greater curve is be because the largest steam engine I can use is the 4-6-0 .
This layout is a light weight all form layout.

And now on to James:
Quick note from another new guy. Long story short.
Worked in a hobby shop as a teenager and loved all of it but the trains stayed with me.
First Lionel as a kid then HO in high school and in and out of it till a few months ago when the isolation began because of the dangers of the virus.
Jumped into N gauge because I could do a door sized layout in the corner of my shop that is normally full of old Brit sports cars (have about ten of them) mainly MGs but just about all of the 50’s and 60’s over the years and that’s a lot of years as I’m now 82 but still kicking.
Railroad wise I’m well along with my mountain style layout with a lot of scenery in that little space.
Keep up the good work. I enjoy the variety of projects on your site.
Best regards to you and fellow enthusiasts.
A big thanks to James and Tom.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
