Tom’s been in touch again with his N scale 3×5 layout. Have a look at what he’s been busy doing.
“N scale 3×5 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.

“Here’s another trick I learned for window glazing many years ago.
Go to your nearest store that sells Science KIts,…..ask them if the sell Microscope Glass Slides. The glass is easy to work with…..cut to shape with simple draw of a single side razor blade.
I use them for bldg windows, engine cab and passenger car (esp effective, since you can cover numerous openings based on the scale ie. (O HO or S).
God bless & Happy Modeling!
A big thanks to Tom and RJ.
As you all know, I’m a sucker for a layout update – I do love seeing how they change and morph. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it.
That’s all for today folks, but please don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide. Course I’m biased, but if you want to stop dreaming and start doing, it’s an easy first step.
