Waynesville Terminal Ry - HO 80's

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

My son and me we are building a little shelf layout in HO scale. This layout is destinated to my son. I help him to make it and learn him the skills I know.

 

We started in 2016. I made the workbench using light wood parts.

 

The first tries:

The trackplan was choosen

My son was only 10 and has screwed all the parts together with my advice. He was very enthusiast.

We used 10 mm thick foam underneath the track to give enough space for wiring and rods to drive the turnouts.

 

My son glued the foamboard.

I've wired the turnouts and glue the track on the foamboard.

More work: the scenery by my son. I'm an enthusiast of his work! He is very young but his scenery looks realistic!

I like the close up of the track, looking good. Does he have a say in what rolling stock you have?

Oh yes: he buys what's he want. And from time to time, I buy him items he likes to help him. I accept and I respect his choices.

I'm an end of 50's and 60's fan. He is a 80's fan. No problem.

 

He likes OO English trains too. Now I like that too!

I've build him a bridge using recycled calendars.

Excellent project - father son time at it's best! :D

 

Judging by the excellent scenery work, the apple certainly didn't fall far from the tree. :)

You must be very proud of your son Jacky, and rightly so.

 

Kind regards Peter M

Thank you for your kind comments. My son is making good modeling. He is inspired by military modeling. That's very good.

I'm not sure we keep the steam pump house beside.

I've saw and adapted this building to the spare space we have on the layout.

The Conrail semi truck is an old Athearn kit built and weathered by my son.

This is coming together wonderfully, Jack. Your son is making great strides, and it's fantastic how you are supporting him. :)

Thank you Dan (and F-UnitMad),

I'm glad and proud he makes nice modeling.

I learnt him a part (the basics) and he develops himself how to do. I think he has the sense for the weathering and for the scenery. He is patient. So that's good.

 

Here are photos of his work for scenery and just beside, you can see the new module. The layout is growing!

We have decided to put off the bridge at the end of the module to widen the view.

I made the woodwork, tracklaying and the electricity (often it's only a 2 wires difficulty). And I let my son to do the scenery. His choice! He loves!
