Yes, it can be done.

I call it the Yankee Table as I decided to start building it with whatever I had on hand, could barter for, or get on the cheap. The green is called "Asperagus" Don't you love it? I had it on hand from another project 10 years ago. The blue is the paint from last year's bathroom project, and the train is from a Xmas gift to myself last year. I bought the power supply on ebay for $18. The layout is from Thor's site. Its a great loop but you need to keep the train short otherwise the loco can get overcome by pulling all those turns.


The white board will be a painted sky backdrop. Something simple...

Its a Lionel 0-6-0 from a Flyer set w/matching caboose. A guy was selling locos and cabooses from Flyer sets for $60 on ebay last Xmas and I couldnt resist. I have to say the Flyer isn't very powerful, but it is pretty bullet proof.

I like that for a name too, "Dog Tail Chasing".

Background Update 15JUL12

Painted a back drop in keeping with the simplicity of the layout. I plan on eventually getting the full matching B&O PEEP car set from RMT to finish out the B&O F3s I have. I did some experimenting and I will definitely need the motorized B loco to pull anything more than two cars through all these curves.

I do have to say that I really enjoy this simple 4x4 more than my 8x4 right now. Not sure why.

I like the skyboard, it really makes the layout look larger. :)
Ditto what John said.:D:thumbsup:

Too bad you don't have the room to make it a bit bigger.:eek:hwell:

This table was actually a left over from when I initially made my first table. There was a large support pole in the way so I had to make one 4x8 table and one 4x4 table in order to have what I had originally planned. I ended up just working with the 4x8 table and had this left over.
