Title: My Layout Photos!! (Finally!)
Post by: PRRThomas11 on October 26, 2007, 06:59:53 PM
I finally got pictures of my layout up!!! It isnt finished so dont be disappointed by the look. I know this should be on the N-scale forum, but oh well here it is.

Im making my layout from the Woodland Scenics N-scale Scenic Ridge Layout Kit. It is 3 feet by 6 feet and is made from the subterrain system.

As you can see it still nedds a lot of work. It needs paint, ballast, grass, and a little cleaning too.

Good Start. Its actually an FA-1 not a PA. Ithink the aTSF GP is either a GP40 or a GP38.
Looks like you have a lot of good locos(PCM E8, 4-6-2, RS1) and a few starter set not so great but still nice ones (the other steamers, the F3, the GP, the F7's, the trolley, and the superbowl loco.) Anyways, good start.

Thanks, I couldn't remember the name of the FA-1so i said the closest thing. The way my camera takes pictures doesnt realy look to good with the flash. The trains look better in person.
By the way, every time I do something new I'll post the pics on this topic. ;D

Not bad, are you going to get Percy, Henry, and James for your N scale layout too?

You can usually find them for about $300. You can go to http://woodlandscenics.com and look at the layout kits.

Yes I am going to get the other sets. I need to do a little more work on the layout until i get something new.

Thanks for your coments guys. Corrie what do you think?

Actually, Woodland Scenics sells the kit for $300, the building se is only $70 at http://blwnscale.com and I used flex track and saved some money (although I bought it after I got the track pack which didn't work too well).
