I took these photos of my previous model railroad layout in November, 2013 so I would have a record of what I had accomplished to this point. Some of the buildings and rolling stock go back many years, as far back as the 1960s. Some have been built recently. I am constantly tweaking the model train scenes. The railroad was practically finished when I took these. The backdrop behind Summit hadn't been done and there was some ballasting to finish in the yards. I add model train scenes when I find interesting figures and other details. I am still building freight and passenger kits although I can't even use all the ones I already have built. Some are a real challenge! There are still freight cars to weather and engines to fix or convert to DCC. Always something to do! These photos provide an overview of model train scenes around the former layout room.
I am currently building a new UNRR in a new home (2016). You can follow along its progress as I build it.
