Rough garage layout

5488 Views 20 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  tjcruiser
Had 2 tables sitting in garage for a while so i decided to use them as a rough layout for my hawthorne village coca cola express.I have a bridge tressel set and more track coming.I also decided to put a quick shot of the lionel train cars which i got from my grandmother in 1993.

I will be picking up a 4x8 board for the train but am having a hard time using the anyrail program to see what kind of layout i wanna do.I have the 18piece truseel bridge set coming tomorrow and soon more track also.

Dicey support on that second (smaller) table, huh? Are you planning on building a proper frame to support the plywood ... 2x4's, etc.? Legs? Hate to see you go too far with your layout, only to have gravity take over on that floating table.

Good luck ... ask questions as you proceed!


Looks like you're having fun with the white packing styrofoam. Go to it. Quick, easy, cheap tunnels.

Down the road, you might consider spending just a few dollars to buy some pink (or blue) insulation foam at Home Depot or Loews. It carves much more smoothly than the white stuff, without yielding all of the crumbling little white "beads" that packing foam is made from.

Nothin' wrong with a little creative recycling at this point, though!

"Ohh, exhalted King Gravitus ... I beseech thee to please be kind to Dukenukem. He dare doth venture ever so close to the Dreaded Edge. Nay ... sayeth not what you must think. For his intentions are most noble and pure. I implore you ... please grant him safe passage through The Land of Gravity so that he may live freely to see another glorius day in your kingdom."

Your most humbled subject,

... unfortunately power supply took a fall and died :(

Don't despaireth, good lad. For if we all pay due heed and homage to King Gravitus, and from this point hence do solemnly vow to move thy goods and wares away from the Dreaded Edge, we may soon find peace and harmony in our beloved land. But, alas! ... Ye who persist to be tempted by the siren wails of The Edge shall pay a dear price and move thusforth forward into the future in squalor amidst broken piles of rubble and forlorn dreams.

Pay good heed to these words of wisdom, lad ... pay good heed ...
