My HO Scale Layout

This section is for all of you who would like to 'show and tell' about your Trains / Locomotives - whatever the scale or gauge!

Just a small section of my modest sized basement layout. This section is Greenbrier, MO circa 1920.

Nice :thumbup: :thumbup:

I'm a Model Railroader at heart just don't have the space. I have lots and lots of nice kits I collected while working with a close friend who owns a Model Railroad shop in the Atlanta area, Riverdale Station.

Good afternoon,
Sweet railroad layout, Doc. I built a coffee table layout in 'N' scale back in the day. I still have all the bits just no table or cover now. I will take it up again one day if Father Time allows.
regards,
Panless

Thanks. A large scale garden RR would be cool and enable me to use my Tiger1 along with it.
Doesn’t it seem like Model Railroad shops are getting scarce?

Like Painless I had/have an "N" Gauge layout modelled on the British Railways transition period Steam to Diesel,
LMS/ Tring -Berkhamstead
Then I discovered large scale r/c Aircraft which needed the space so the layout was stripped down and packed away,
I still fly the aircraft but Armour tends to not fly into high trees or destroy engines after heavy landings so the Tanks have most of my attention nowadays :haha:

I used to have two layouts.
A Tri-ang TT, this got sold off.
And a Lone Star triple O gauge with all locos and livery made from diecast metal. I still have some of the rolling stock and locos.

A superbly conceived and presented landscape, Jim, especially with all the components in a scale that looks authentic, and really pleases the eye. :thumbup:
Love the train chugging along too. It must be a great way of unwinding to be able to watch the loco passing lazily through this unique setting. :thumbup: :thumbup:
Lucky man!

I like it. I had a 00 layout years ago in one of the bedrooms but it had to go, space was needed. Good use of the scenic backgrounds, it blends into the layout perfectly. Still got all my stuff but I'll have to board out the attic first.

Thank you. I’m building small garden railroad this spring. Eventually I’ll build a diorama for my Tiger 1 and flak 36. Hopefully scenery in a much larger scale won’t be horribly difficult.
