Ho layout diablo junction,subway map nyc poster,used g scale train track for sale singapore - Tips For You

The theme of this layout is a branch line somewhere in the American West, probably in the Mohave desert in California or Arizona because I like that desert scenery. It's a roundy roundy layout with two levels so the train goes around twice per circuit, and will probably end up 5' by 9' or just a bit bigger.
Cool, I have always liked train layouts, not my thing to make but lie what you can do now with what's available. I usually glue the tracks down but I've gone for Hornby track here and it has little pins to nail down the track.
My health has picked up and I'm feeling the best I have in a year (I've been discharged from the dialysis unit and I'm doing it at home) and the weather is also much better, so it's time to get back into this! I'm finishing up the wiring and trouble shooting the track in preparation for ballast and scenery work.


This is unprototypical as anything, but I didn't want to build anything too big (the last one was just a bit big to complete in a reasonable time) and the size and simplicity of this layout gives me constraints to work to. This is pretty unprotypilcal but part of the whole nostalgic layout theme I'm aiming for here. I had dabbled with making this a British outline OO layout, but after running trains on the layout I'm going back to the original HO American West plan.
The bottom level will have a bit of a yard, while the top will have some small hills and a desert industry scene. The basic plastering is done and all the track is all laid (awaiting the terrible job of wiring it in).
Now that I'm back home from hospital I'm going to take the opportunity to work on this a bit.


The track eventually gets a surround of ballast glued around it which fixes it pretty firmly in place. The speed and size of the American rolling stock suits the small layout far more than the British stuff. The track does take a current but it doesn't really spark (unless you intentionally bridge the rails, and then the spark is pretty minor). Also, I want to continue on with my Mohave scenery (which I'm much better at than any other theme!).
