“This was built for a friend who has shown great interest in my layout
Have a look it was made using leftovers from my layout
A wonderful layout – and made from leftovers too!
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.

Hello Tracy. That is really quite nice. I liked the “step by step” pictures. There is still plenty of open space left to add to or modify the layout.
“Never discard anything”. Great, Tracy. You’re a great
“perspiration” to us all.

Thanks Tracy. This train is like my birthday present. I love it!!!
K.I.S.S applied very well. SSUperb scenery and nothing overdone. A real sense of space. Thanks for sharing. D/
wow ole boy said you did an excellent job and i agree.
Judging by the size, it would make a nice coffee table, glass top and sides, nice to watch the trains go round
I love creating a project from leftovers, especially when they turn out as well as this one did, nice job Tracy. What a great way to share the hobby. Cary in KY
I think that what you have done shows a lot of creativity. I am keeping some of these photos since they give me some good ideas for my unfinished layout. Great job !
Good looking layout–but I had to look twice before I realized that what I thought was a giant Ferris wheel or a fancy bridge in the background was in reality a kitchen chair! LOL
Thanks for sharing
one of the best I have seen on here
Thanks for the inspiration shows what can be done in a small space
big is not always better.
What a nice thing to do for a friend, Tracy. Built from leftovers or not, it’s a great looking layout by any standards. One question: what scale is this, HO? Hmm, OK, two questions: what’s the overall size of the layout? Thanks a million for posting, it sure makes me want to get going on mine. ( If only I can find a multi-talented friend to spend a few weeks on it…) Warren
The comment on Farris wheel looked like a bridge on first look then I figured it out as a chair.
Great job there Tracy, yes I liked the stepy by step that you did with the pictures. Did you go to college for an geologists? Why, because on how you made the surface of the mountain, one actually two of the mountain peaks look like extinct volcanoes. Then the grad that is around them looks like it also. Very nicely done job. What scale is this?? It looks smaller then HO, N gouge???
Keep on trucking and keep them on the rails.

Keep up the GREAT work! ~Hemi
This is great. You wouldn’t think it’s from leftovers.
Great layout aa well as imagination. Congrats on your efforts! Well done.
Tracy, you’ve built a great layout. I love the different levels you’ve created,and the rocks and mountains are very realistic.I don’t think there’s a flat piece on your layout. It’s not overcrowded with clutter but retains it’s realism. I’m sure your friend is delighted with there new layout and appreciates the time and effort that you’ve put into it.
Hi Tracy. Can I become you new best friend ?. Layout looks great. Especially like the cliffs and rock scenery. A really nice thing for you to do for your friend.
Great job love the Mountain, Looks close to the kitchen, Grab a cold beer and enjoy!!
It’s a wonderful build! I like the people standing around the unfinished building and fence. They keep you company as you work. ;-D
Great job, very good.
A most impressive little layout. I wish I could do as well.
ell I’ll be dog-gone–the bridge is really a CHAIR! Wouldn’t have caught it without help from other commentators. In fact I was wondering if I had that same bridge somewhere in my left-over boxes.
