Modeling free-lance transition era in HO.
After many years away from model building and fantasizing about having a layout, its time to get started. I am retired and have no excuses for putting off starting on a layout. The layout design is on my drawing board. I have finally started with bench work. The fun is just beginning. Hand laying all track and turnouts as I have the time and lots of building skills from years working as a carpenter-contractor. Hand laying track has been and continues to be very relaxing and enjoyable. Using Charlie Comstocks' video has led to workable inexpensive turnouts in any size or configuration.
Built the first scratch built structure and entered it in an NMRA competion. A good learning experience!
