Phil’s been back in touch – this time he’s adding to the collection of WW2 model trains.
Well, I say WW2, he’s dialed back the clock even more to WW1.
What I love about his layout is the theme. Any layout with a theme will always look better than one without. That’s just the way it is.
(Have a look at this post by Martin on picking a model train theme)
And just as important as the theme, is making a start: Phil’s first post is here.
I thought I would share an update on my WW1 railway. If you recall it is set somewhere in the south of England in 1918.
A couple of things that I think worked well were adding balloons and elements of the grand fleet to the back scene. You can see this in the photos. I just downloaded some images and resized them to suit
I have also added an airfield with plane landing.
You will see I have installed the Oxford Rail railway gun in a siding which doubles as a small military camp. I have decided it is too much trouble to actually get the gun to run with the clearances it requires
The eagle eyed will see a loco running a signal. Working signalling is on the to do list
A huge thanks to Phil for sharing his WW2 model trains. Oops! No that’s WW1 for this post.
Here’s a military model train layout from WW2.
And who can forget Will’s army themed layout from all those years ago?
As long time readers will know, I do love a theme behind a layout. For me, it brings it to life. There’s only one thing I enjoy more – an update! So today’s post ticks all the boxes for me.
Hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here, if you want to get going on your very own layout.
