Hey Everyone, Thought I'd put up a pic or two of a shelf layout I've been working on. The original plan was to go narrow guage since that was what I used to model, but I've been bitten by the New England bug. Yeah, I know NE had narrow guage, but I enjoy shortline standard guage also and wanted to capture the mill scene with industrial track similar to Holyoke MA. I love the old brick and stonework and plan on scratch building some of the more pictueque structures. I've been spending the last half a year taking pics of anything that catches my eyes while driving down the road. (Caution, I slam on my brakes for things like interesting old buildings, bridges and abutments, dams, etc.) The layout has been on hold while I develop a new plan, but I have a pretty good idea of what I want. Regardless, this layout is more of a R&D project to try out some techniques that have been introduced to MRRing while I was absent from the hobby. Some tech info: Layout size: 1' x 11' Control: Block (no use for DCC, yet) Construction: Shelf brackets and 1x2's with 1/2" plywood. Tapography: Foam board hacked with a hotwire I'll add more pics as I move along. Who said you can't build a layout in a small space.
