Thanks to Pete Snyder for providing these photos of his model train layout and sharing his story.
This is what Pete had to say about his model railroading experience…
As I promised, I’m sending some photos I’d taken several months ago. Keep in mind, that most layouts do change appearances from time to time, especially when they’re still being “finished” …if ever?
Unfortunately, I don’t have any of the “super structure.” Never thought to take any pictures way back when I first started it, almost 7 years ago.
Back then, it was only a piece of 4 x 5 plywood with some skeleton frame work underneath without legs. Just laid over two saw horses when working on it. Then upended when not in use.
Today, it has folding legs, because it remains “in place” with the work continuing as I feel so motivated. In between, I’ve other projects as well. There’s always something going on.
Anyway…hope I’ve been a little helpful for others to get some ideas from. Again, everything in the pictures, have been all scratch built, with a couple of exceptions where two or three warehouses were purchased. I found for my scenery, the usage of wet paper for constructing mountain shapes, and using “plaster”cloth worked best for me.
Take care, and happy “tracking”….Pete
Thanks Pete for sharing.
