Good Morning everyone. I will introduce myself. I am Sheldon, I live on the prairies here in Canada. I grew up in a CNR train station in a small town, my dad was the station agent there from 1966 till 1975. We lived in the train station, and it was a pretty different upbringing to say the least. I am 57 now, and have been into my layout since Mar 2019. I am very good friends with Wounded bear, and Sid has been responsible for getting me into the hobby and has been my mentor. Sorry buddy have to blame someone.. LOL.

I have to say i love the hobby and i have a job that affords me plenty of time to work on my layout. I work from home so any free time i have is spent in the basement.

Regards Sheldon.


This is a 12 x 8 x 4 L shape layout.


The Cork went down nice and easy. Was tedious marking the track with pencil first.


Was a long busy weekend of ballasting, but well worth it in the end. I actually mixed a couple of colours to get some of the effects i wanted.


Welcome Sheldon!

Off to a great start, indeed!  Great to see another layout on the rise.  Appreciate the photos of your progress.

Looking forward to more shots as you build.




Thank you Jonathan. i have such a long ways to go.


Hey buddy! Good to see you finally posting.

Sheldon and I have known each other for about 20 years now and talk on the phone almost daily. The other big thing him and I have in common is our sickness for horsepower.

Keep on posting man. There aren't enough people posting layout pics here.

Another "man of the motor" so to speak? I really like the layout with all the curvy stuff.
Feel like a Mogul.

You're layout looks amazing! Can't wait to see more!
Bachmann trains are awesome. I hope they come out with Stepney one day.
