PostSubject: A clip of my HO model railroad.   Wed Feb 16, 2011 2:10 am



A Level Crossing on my HO scale model railroad. A long way from finishing but just thought I'd upload this clip.
Traffic Light and Crossing Signals are from Walthers.

Thank you both.

And probably for a few years. HeeHee
Not even half done.

Thank you forn sharing , Alex! I liked very much the lightening of the railroads...It seems to be very REAL!

I always liked scale model railroads. I used to have one when a girl, but my brother has it right now for the children.

Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

Great, Alex! You and my brother in law would get along great....not sure what his scale is, but he has a beautiful railroad set up in his basement. It's in a spare bedroom and the entire perimeter is filled with platform for the railway, with an area where you have to walk up through the center and stand in the middle (so you have access to all sides)....does that make sense? Anyway, it's been a hobby all his life....fun!

I love those things! They have the hugest display scene her that I have ever seen. It turns dark in the room with stars and stuff on the ceiling. Then the lights go back on again to represent day time.

Hubby is into model railroading too. We always do a joint holiday venture on a Christmas village with rail service. We have a lot of fun. He's going to be starting a layout sometime soon.

The wheels of progress move slowly but surely. "Main line" and industrial branch finished laying track.

Industrial branch is up top right of photos and future freight yard will be in bottom left of photos.
