Planning is progressing well for the lower level staging yard. Using AnyRail, I’ve been trying out a few designs for the two staging yards, one for the freight and one for the Metra passenger service. While using track planning software helps a huge deal, nothing beats laying it out in situ. In fact, doing so showed up a huge flaw in the AnyRail plan I’d done, or rather, the way AnyRail does the turnout drawing (I’ll show you what that was in a future video). In the meantime, I printed out the adjusted track plan and overlaid it on the […]
Follow along as I continue the build of my N scale model railroad. In this episode I do a test of the helix using a freight and passenger train, as well as giving an update on my track planning using AnyRail. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to follow my layout building progress. Also please follow my Facebook page, as I will be adding photos and updates to that as I build my new layout.
Follow along as I continue the build of my N scale model railroad. In this episode I unbox the laser-cut N scale helix kit, and then progress with the building of this kit. I’ll show you all the steps and explain the process as I build this helix. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to follow my layout building progress. Also please follow my Facebook page as I will be adding photos and updates to that as I build my new layout. The laser-cut helix kit was bought from Gleiswendel Shop (Track Helix shop) https://www.gleiswendelshop.de/ This is a […]
Following on from my fourth video, in Episode 5 I finally start on my track planning, beginning with the helix, which will be the anchor point from where the track planning starts. Follow on as I explain why I’m doing this, as well as what track I have chosen for the helix, and how I’ve decided on a size for the helix. More to come in the following months (& years!), including researching and photographing locations, deciding on a track plan, and then the fun bit…the actual construction!
