    '1943, Somewhere in England', N scale Monster Layout

    Thread Starter: armyairforce

    Since getting back into railroading in 2005, I built three N scale layouts for myself. 'Dreamland' was the first on a 6 x 2ft board. 'Area 51' was next with a similar but enlarged track plan on an 8 x 2ft 6in board, both of which operated diesels. My last layout was 'Storage Depot 41, Kingman'...

    beginning stages of phase one of the layout

    Thread Starter: gseritt

    So with the "inclement weather" that has kept us home bound for a few days I finally got bored enough, today, to start on the benchwork for my son's portion of the layout. Still only have a very vague idea on the track plan but built a bench, and loosely laid some foam board and some 24" curved...
