An impending visit from the grandkids led our crew of gandy dancers to finish laying track on the mainline of our spare bedroom O gauge project layout. I snagged a couple Plasticville buildings from the kids’ layout for scenery:
Just like prototype railroads, model railroads are all about location
After years of not having room for an O gauge model railroad layout, I finally moved into a new house that has enough room for an O gauge model railroad layout – in fact, several rooms from which to choose – and now I’ve got a major decision to make: location, location, location.
Where prototype railroads search for the best possible route that would use the least possible track, my goals are to create the largest amount of track through the most challenging route.
So, where can I create the best model railroad layout: a spare bedroom, or a spare stall in the garage?
