Would like to see pics of layouts with a lighted scenery elements (bridges, street lights, beacons, buildings, crossbucks, etc). The more the better. Less room/ambient lighting is also good. Thanks!

15x5 basement layout

Garrett76 ·
I'm about to enter the brotherhood of the basement layout. Will probably be able to swing a 15x5 layout with some additional area for a freight yard. This is my initial design in Lionel Fastrack. The lower level is a large figure 8 with locomotive service yard and turnouts for the freight yard. The upper level is elevated with some bridges. I have the unlicensed version of SCARM, so couldn't have all track pieces in one file. Had to break into two and overlay the images.

There has been some chatter on some the forums asking if the www.RailroadBackdrops.com backdrops are ad durable as we say they are. Yes they are waterproof, yes you can wash them with most household cleaners, yes they are alcohol and scenery cement proof....but....can they really hold up to plaster? Here is a link to our new youtube video from scenery expert Peter Lloyd-Lee of www.CustomModelScenery.com showing just how durable our backdrops are https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txVjiMfblXo

Has anyone modified the scenery around the Morton Salt Building base? If so, how did you remove the old grass and trees? Any suggestions will be appreciated, thank you. Tom

Re: No Dust Styrofoam Cutting

Rayin"S" ·
I may be coming late to the party, but finding this thread was what I needed. I have some Styrofoam to cut indoors and wanted to avoid the mess. I went to Menards, Home Depot and Farm & Fleet and could not find these blades, also I have a Craftsman saber saw and the Bosch blades probably would not fit. I did happen to find some knife edge blades for my saw on Ebay, but thanks for the tip on the type of blade, I didn't know they existed. Ray

Buzz, I agree totally, I am glad you posted as I had some of these blades in U Shank, but I recently picked up a really nice Bosch 5.5 AMP heavy duty jig saw. I have used the "knife edge blades" to cut rigid foam, homasote, and most recently some 3/8 inch thick commercial carpet tiles I installed in my train room.... It's great to have a part # for a Bosch T shank knife edge blade, these things are great.

A couple of quick clips of my layout in action with LIGHTS! I just added a Geo Bush loco (number 4141) in honor of The First Lady! I am still at work on my road, so you will see the underlayment still exposed. Scenery will come soon, as well as a second level in the back of the table (where I going to put my collection of Dept 56 buildings).

I put a Harly sound in the MTH Harly dealer. adjustable volume, I can hear it over the trains. I have the telephone " Joe's Diner" That's heard over the trains. The MTH gas station needs to be louder.

Re: buildings with sound effects?

Garrett, If I may offer a simpler solution. You can always find buildings and then have a speaker externally to them that makes sound. I just found $1 MP3 modules on eBay and $1 MicroSD cards that go in it. That way, for each building you could find a sound effect in MP3 form and have each button wired up to activate them for the guests. You could get more elaborate if you wanted to go wireless and fancy. For example, you could have a Bluetooth speaker hidden from view and have a device to...
