What did you do today on your layout? (HO and other scales)

Catzilla!

 

i see a spoof video with cats in the making to BOC!

 

that song was one of anthems in grad school at Berkeley as it did so well cranked to 11 (yes I fixed it with nice new numbering so our 250w stereo in the lab went to 11). Sure I lost a couple of db of hearing to it...

When one doesn’t do any “proper” layout building. This is not HO scale.

It may not be "proper" but it's damn cool! 😎

And pretty fun too 😄

I love the automation tiles. Too bad they are not sold individually.

Hard wired DCC in to my tramway Kiha 23 with some oversight, and then detailed it when I got home. Its hard to see but there is a lady in the cab and some people inside. (ignore the obvious wires please...) the light is so bright in the first picture because it doesn't have the destination board in yet

still needs some work. I screwed up some how, and the lights on one side just stay on all the time so eventually I have to open it back up and solder some more. As well as I need to work on concealing the wires from the DCC chip because they are quite noticeable from the sides... but Its a start. I like tramway, but many of the factory installed detail parts kept popping off and I had to glue them in, and the canopies they came with wouldn't go on so I had to cut the pins on them and glue them strait on...

Finally got around to building modules and my next layout. They've been replanned twice now, but have since settled onto this fairly elongated arrangement. It will be laid with modified N scale track for HOe trains.

In town A the station will be shared with normal HO scale track and town B will have a similar arrangement for connection to a HOn3 layout. In the middle is a farm and a lead for a mine. The mine lead will also serve as a connection to other HOe modules. The other side piece will be an uphill climb to a hotel/onsen.

Well thankfully I'm working on that. I've finally about given up on my old Crown Vic and am working on buying a nice minivan, something that will last me a long time.

Update:

The first rails have been laid today for my dandy new narrow gauge layout. I got a huge lot of N scale track off of EBay for dirt cheap, so it looks like that's what I'll be using. I figure the frequent tie spacing will be hidden under ballast, turf, pavement, walkways, the usual narrow gauge stuff.

Initial test:

And a slight track rearrangement:

Once again, sorry for the upside didownwn pictures. I still have a few things I need to get for the rest of the layout, but construction should go at an acceptable rate now that I have most if not all of the track I need.
