17.4.15. The final details are added such as Lichen, and Sea Foam trees. You can spray non-scented hairspray over these and sprinkle green scatter for leaves if you wish to. PVA glue dries clear. Varnish is added to create a small amount of water (it is still drying so it appears white in this video). The skull with red LEDs from skeleton Creek is still here as a fun element. The bird grit idea I got from ULC35 - he makes similar quick layouts. Then I get to run a mixture of Southern and Union Pacific, a GP50 diesel, and a Big Boy. They would never have met really, and operated in different times too. But this gives an idea of how the layout looks with either steam or diesel. Really I want a small switcher for this layout. I may also run Anglo trains on here but I have to admit it does suit the American trains best I think. So ‘Trio’ has changed into ‘Double Take’ layout and is booked in for a show in Romford in November. Who knows I may add further small details but this layout is essentially finished. Finished to ‘stage 1’. After one month. Music is from Walking with Beasts and Master & Commander. Internet search 'Calvertfilm'.

The layout is built out of 1" thick foam insulation board that has been layered and glued together. After the terrain was carved out of the foam, a layer of plaster was painted onto all the non-flat areas of the layout. A few rock castings were also added with the remaining plaster areas roughly carved and scraped into a rock-like texture. Part of the backside of the layout between the two tunnels actually had to be chiseled out of the plaster since I didn't leave enough room for the track. The scenery was then painted using various cheap acrylic paints, mostly in the form of washes. Ground cover consists of Woodland Scenics ground foam along with some grass fiber from Noch I think. Trees are a mix of Grand Central Gems (evergreen) and Woodland Scenics (deciduous). The track is all Kato unit rack and is just a simple loop with 6" radius curves. I added a few sets of feeder wires and soldered some of the rail joints together such that every track section either has a feeder wire attached to it or is soldered to a section of track that does. Overkill probably, but not much extra work for such a small layout and that should prevent any track power issues down the road. The track was ballasted using the Kato ballast, with the track rails then painted with Neolube. The track and ballast was then weathered using weather chalks. Since the chalks kept rubbing off on my hands when handling the layout, I sprayed the entire layout with dull coat out of a spray can. The track of course then had to be cleaned with a cleaning block and alcohol. I used a two-part resin for the water in the creek/pond and the mine building is a kit bashed Walthers Glacier Gravel Co. kit. Power is supplied with a simple plug in AC to DC power converter that has a variable voltage output (selected with a slide switch) that varies between 3 and 12 volts. This allows for speed control. On/off/direction is controlled by two toggle switches on the front of the layout. A standard power pack could of course also be used, but really isn't needed for this type of simple layout, so I chose to use the basic AC adapter/power converter instead to keep things simpler.

This model railway layout in 1/24 scale is set in the 1970’s and depicts a small Uranium mine somewhere in the Canada. The diorama was presented as minimum gauge micro layout at the Warley Model Railway Exhibition. Although the layout is not based on an actual mine, Nick Wright has tried to capture the industrial “run on a shoestring” look and feel of a typical mine of this size. Generally, these minimum gauge or micro layouts are small model railways, usually less than three or four square feet in area, that have a clear purpose and offer a degree of operating potential.

30.3.15. (30 March 2015) This will run either 00 or H0 gauge trains when done. It is an abandoned mine theme layout. Tonight at the club I carve some insulation foam board and stick it to the backscene. I spray it with red primer and black, which gives it is nice finish, ready to accept gravels. But I do need to fill in some of the gaps another day. I have a cast of a boat which needs paint but will look nice in the dried-up lake-bed. Funnily enough it is called ‘Pam’, the same name as my sister. I have a little N gauge track feeding the buckets at the back. These then in theory go up to the top of that building and sift the material into different sizes on the way down, for dispensing into wagons at the front. Finally I film the layout as t stands. Now it still needs lots of gravels and some vegetation. So more to come. Music is from Jurassic Park. Internet search 'Calvertfilm'.

Subscribe My Chnnel For More Videos https://www.youtube.com/modeltrainsrailroads Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/modeltrainsrailroads Free model trains e-book from http://scaletrains.org All model railroaders make mistakes when planning and building a layout, even those who have constructed several model railroads before. But, the key with anything in life, is to learn from mistakes. For beginners, one of the more common mistakes is selecting the wrong scale. It’s advisable to measure start by measuring exactly how much room is available, and also consider how much space you might need now, and in the future if or when the layout expands. Unfortunately some beginners start collecting in one scale and then later decide to change to another scale. The beginner will either begin all over or even attempt mixing scales. That can be a very bad choice, so it makes sense to decide critical things starting from day one. Another suggestion is to visualize what you want the model railroad layout to look like, prior to getting started. Decide what you want the railway to represent prior to racing out to purchase something. Choose whether you want your model railroad to replicate a contemporary railroad, or if you prefer it depicts a period in history. • Do you prefer steam engine or diesel operations? • Do you prefer to run a DCC system or the more traditional DC? • Do you want your model trains to transport freight, passengers, or perhaps both? • What style of scenery and landscapes do you prefer for your layout? Farmland, mountains, a city scene, or perhaps a smallish town… consider carefully what elements you would like included, and what will work best in the area you have for your railroad setup. • What style of structures, buildings, bridges etc., do you want included? Would you be thinking of including some warehouses or factories, a school, fire station, some shops, a church, a mining town, a container port … the possibilities are numerous depending on your theme and era! • Will your railroad be on one level or perhaps spread over several levels, or perhaps your space might be more suitable for a shelf layout? • Which track configuration would be best in the space you have? Maybe a figure 8 design, a point-to-point layout, a twice-around track, or a dog-bone track format? • Will you be wanting a mainline, with perhaps a branch line? • Will you be adding track sidings, or possibly a classification or staging yard or roundhouse and turntable? There is no shortage of options worthy of consideration prior to geeting started. And, it’s usually best to imagine how your completed model railroad will look, prior to getting started. Undergoing some historic research and careful planning can be really interesting if you tackle it with the right attitude. And, carefully considered planning can actually save dollars and frustration later. For example, a common error is to make gradients that are far too steep. An engine will run smoothly along the flat track and then reach a gradient that it needs the power to climb. It could stop or battle to climb the grade if it is too steep. If the gradient is visual, then restricting it to a maximum of 2 percent is a good option. If the grade is out of view (such as inside a mountain range, or as part of a helix), then possibly use a steeper grade. The weight ratio on a scale model railroad actually permits a steeper grade than would normally be found on a real-life railroad. Unlike on real railroads, few model railroaders operate 100 car trains, so the model trains can generally be expected to tackle steeper gradients. Difficulties also occur if track curves are made too tight. Although shorter engines and freight cars can navigate tight curves, longer passenger cars potentially run the risk of getting stuck or derailing on tight curves. railroads, trains, railways, model railroader, model trains, scale models, ho scale, oo gauge, track, locomotives,model trains, trains, railroad, g-scale, santa fe, toy train, model trains, model train, model trains scales, model trains for kids, model trains n scale, model trains 2017.

The model railroad layout, called “Mara Harbor”, was built by Martin Welberg. Martin is a well-known model builder and model railroader in the Netherlands. His interests in model railroading or railway modelling are coastal narrow gauge railroads in On30 scale. Some years ago, Martin started building a new modular model train show layout for the famous model railway exhibition OntraX 2014 in Utrecht, Netherlands. His idea was to construct a coastal line railroad layout, including an engine shed and locomotive depot with turntable, wooden bridges as well as a lot of trees and bushes. Of course, a dock or dockyard - also known as a shipyard - should not be missing. On Martin’s superb American themed On30 layout, we see different steam locomotives shunting along the coastal railway line between the fiddle yard on the left and the dockyard on the right. The whole layout, which was presented at the great “Modelspoor Expo 2018” in Belgium, takes approximately eight meters in length. Apart from the rolling stock, we will discover absolutely perfect weathered buildings on Martin’s railway layout. He is a professional in weathering and in the reconstruction of wood structures. By the way, On30 scale - also called 0n30, On 2½ or Oe gauge - is the modelling of narrow gauge railways in O scale on HO gauge track in 1/48 scale ratio by American model railroaders, in 1/43.5 scale ratio by British and French model railroaders and 1/45 by Continental European model railroaders. Please, visit https://www.pilentum.de and watch some pictures of his great layout.

Test run of the N-gauge Kato 11-103 powered truck. I'm using this as the basis of an On18 (O scale running on N scale track) mining micro layout to be added to my On30 (O scale running HO track). You can see some comparisons of sizes in the beginning of the vid. There is a On30 ore wagon and a O scale mining cart. The Kato 11-103 was purchase direct from Japan via Ebay. Its kind of light so I'll be adding some weight to it. The plan is to build a battery storage mining loco on it. More info at: http://gasmechs.blogspot.com/

If you’ve ever wondered what a gold mine looks like from the side then this video is for you! And while we’re at it I’ll step you through every stage of how this awesome diorama was built. The techniques used to build this diorama can be used whether you’re building a huge model railroad or just a tiny little master piece of a model, you can also use these techniques for war gaming scenery however when it comes to sealing the scenery with Woodland Scenics Scenic Cement I’d use it undiluted for extra strength. The hot wire tools I use in the video are supplied from ‘The Hot Wire Foam Factory’ and I’m giving you my 100% honest opinion that these tools are absolutely fantastic! This diorama idea has been on the cards for over 12 months and it was not until I started to use the hot wire tools that I was able to get the results I was after! I highly recommend these tools!

An excellent show today, we have included 10 layouts from today, hope you enjoy. Duffield Lane Pit – O-16.5 NG. This is a work in progress. The aim of the layout is to show that it is possible to have a narrow gauge double track circular railway system including a fiddle yard on a relatively small board. The layout depicts a run-down private lime/chalk quarry linked to a processing plant by a 2ft 3in Narrow Gauge railway. The End of the Line – O/014 – The End of the Line represents the distribution point of a very small coal mining operation in the early 1960’s. Wickwar – N Gauge – Farnham and District MRC Wickwar is a small town on the important secondary line between Bristol and Gloucester modelled as it was early to mid 1950s. The layout uses either DC or DCC, the control electronics are based on MERG modules and the MERG CBUS system. Hayling Island – OO Just off the south coast of England is Hayling Island. At the end of the nineteenth century the railway had been constructed for the use of goods and the local community. After the 2nd world war it became a well visited holiday resort by both holiday makers and day-trippers during the summer months. Dufftown and Craigelliachie Brickworks – OO-9 – Brighton MRC. This depicts a fictional narrow gauge whisky railway on Speyside in North East Scotland. Nictun Borrud – OO Gauge – Fareham & District MRC This is set somewhere in the rolling chalk downland of the Hampshire Downs. It represents the terminus of a small branch line with some freight facility and is set in the late steam/early diesel period. The layout is built to finescale OO standards and features mostly kit built Southern Region 3rd Rail Electric units. **** I have just noticed that I have accidentally duplicated a clip from Hayling Island at the end of the Nictun Borrud video - apologies ***** Ivley Magna – N Gauge – Woking Miniature Railway Society Modellers The layout represents a bit of the West Country in the 1950s (BR Southern). The continuous main lines (up and down) serve a station which has two through roads, passenger loop, bay platform and goods yard. Over The Top – 1/32 Scale – 60cm gauge and gauge 1. The model represents the final stages of the 1st World War somewhere along the western front. Ashbury Wharf – Astolat MRC This is the oldest club layout and has recently been restored to operation and a complete rewiring and some track work repairs. It was built nearly 60 years ago and is in remarkably good condition. It depicts a busy port serviced by a narrow gauge freight railway. Much Murkle – population 1452 according to the 1931 census is set in a fictitious 1930s community in Herefordshire. It is served by a single track branch from the equally fictitious junction at Newent on the Gloucester to Hereford Line. We hope you enjoy. Steve and Anne – Steam and Model Railways

Tom has just cleaned the track, so it's time to run a freight train through part of his N-scale layout. The scenery, though incomplete, includes a mountain through which the train runs (two tunnels), a coal-mining operation, and a small town. There are a few glitches where the wheels run slowly - or stop! But it makes it to the end of the run.
