A 2021 Christmas Layout memoroy
So far I showed the left third (plateau) and the center area of the 14' wide layout. Time to start on the right side which is 6' x 11'.
An overall shot, closeups to follow in subsequent weeks. In the front is a drivein scene and in the back is a smallish town.
My 12’-by-8’ model railroad, completed in 2004 – see OGR Run 214, April/May 2006 – has room for five locomotives on three independent loops, each controlled by its own transformer throttle. Although I don’t usually run three trains at once, that’s what I did this week.
On this layout, I usually run trains representing several northeastern railroads. In the video, Long Island Rail Road 4-6-0 camelback #18 is on the outer O-72 loop. Boston & Maine ALCO S-2 #1274 is on the O-54 intermediate loop, and New Haven ALCO RS-3 #531 is on the inner O-36 loop. New York Central GP-9 #6001 is also seen on the siding of the O-54 loop but not running in the video.
Good morning, all. I now have everything for my steam engine service area, just need to figure out the best placement. The ash hoist will need to be mounted in a hole in the table top, so that is why it looks too high right now.
....a few views from the Club layout this week.....Trainbros89 (Greg) brought some great scale engines.....I stuck with "traditional -sized" one......here are a few more videos....
Have a great and safe weekend, folks!
Great pics and videos today guys, I'm working like a mad man to get my room situated the way I want it and trying to figure out the display shelving, I've set all of mine so that the bottom of each shelf is 5 3/4" above the one below it. I know this is a little high but I like to have a little extra room when I'm trying to put the really big and heavy locomotives on them, it just seems to make it easier to get them up and on and easy to get the trucks on. I know that I'm probably wasting some space but I'd rather be safe than sorry if you know what I mean. I'll post some pictures her pretty soon and maybe hopefully a video or two of my cloud railroad.
Thanks for the great inspiration today, keep it coming.
