Looks pretty far along, advanced for a beginner. Lots of room for a nice layout, looks good!

I still see myself as a beginner. I am always learning something new with this layout!!

You could say I am into comics!lol
I don't have a huge collection, but I do have a few. IronMan would be my favorite. I have maybe 60 comics of his.
Here lately I have done most of my comic readings on my phone, or iPad. So I don't really have a paper collection of the new stuff. Truthfully I'm not sure I would collect any of marvels new stuff lol!

I am not into new stuff either, started out in 79 attempting to regain what I had as a kid in the early to late 60's.
Once the superhero runs were completed (to where I wanted them) I decided to go backwards and I moved onto Atlas/Marvel Pre-Hero Horror/Western Books.

Unfortunately I do not have the first appearance of Iron Man from Tales Of Suspense 39 (out of my price range) but I do have all other issues of TOS featuring Iron Man (TOS 40-99, shared the title with Cap starting with issue #59).
The TOS title ended in 1968 when Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Sub-Mariner and Silver Surfer all got their own titles.

My bedroom looks like a toy store from all of the action figures/Marvel memorabilia.

Enjoy Both Hobbies!!!

Just some morning pics on the rail. Finished up my buildings. I'm loving the navy blue with white for my layout.

A nice little update. I put on my Santa Fe freight lines to run a bit. I have my switches wired in on my 2nd track. I still am working on the yard wiring.

Thanks guys!!
As of late last night I have found out that I will be moving my layout to a new room in the house.
This means bigger & maybe better

So here is the layout now after the move. This would be just a rough draft. I plan on putting down foam board for the actual layout. Still thinking on adding a grade to have a different level. Hmmmmm

I have had the ez track for a few years now. I don't usually have a lot of issues with it. Every now & then I have a car give me problems. Most of the time it is the cars issue ( coupler height, wheels spacing, or just bad trucks)
I have only had one loco not like the switches & that was the bachmann berkshire I have! Lmao! Go figure?!?
As far as the red & silver goes I always have a soft spot for the war bonnets

Neat! Hope to see more progress in the near future. I have a soft spot for layouts that use EZ Track, as I always have been a big fan of it. Love the shelves of locomotives as well!

I always use ez track. I like how when I want to move , or change it. I just pop off the hot glue I use and unsnap the track. Yes it does sometimes give me a bit of attitude. I have discovered most of the time it is the car, or locos issue.
I have already said it. I really only have problems out of one loco on the ez track & it's the bachmann steamer lol!!

I hear that. I just had to replace a couple sections of track on my own layout. If it had been anything but EZ Track, it would have been painful to fix. But, as it is, I just gently pulled apart the sections of track after moving a couple structures and some road out of the way, put the new ones in, and voila. Less than 10 minutes of work to get everything fixed!

Just a short video of a few trains running. I have to admit the ez track surprised me a bit. I just click it together & laid it down. It's not glued down , or nothing. Plugged it in & away they went.
