George's first layout

Posted by RedgateModels , 21 December 2016 · 408 views

One thing I have been doing over the summer is making #2 son's first layout. Quite refreshing bunging down set track!

 

It started as a 1st and 2nd rad loop set across the corners of two 2x4 boards using my now familiar dowels and toggle clamps. Power transferred from one board to another via the clamps.

 

Santa is bringing him a centre board with turntable and engine shed :)

So he can still have the simple 2 boards for a quick play or all three on a weekend (and Dad has a test track at last lol)

Sneaky, very sneaky.

Absolutely fantastic! I have a 3 1/2 year old (also called George!) and this is giving me ideas for a few years time.

He currently has the Marklin 3+ years old train set and loves it.

 

Merry Christmas!

 

Best regards,

 

Jeremy

CTJ... Don't leave it too long.

I built a layout for grandson just before 3rd birthday.

At 8-y-o he joined the School's Model Club building Airfix planes, never given the railway second glance since!

I used to be into airfix models, I had quite a fleet. I did do railway modelling too as I enjoyed both aspects.
