Some progress on Shane and Sean's father and son Train set: hen I was a child my father and I built this 4x8 HO setup, and I enjoyed it a lot!!! I spent hours and hours playing with it! I grew up and the train set sat still, till recently when my dad hauled it across the country to me and my son! Dad had to cut the 4x8 to get it here, hence the boards on the underside. I set it up quickly and filmed this video, so this is the "before" shot and you will see my updates each week!!! I love this hobby because there is no right or wrong, as long as you enjoy it. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=D-8qwe3DpDE Shane age 1.5 year old loves to watch it go round and round, but he is far too little to let him touch it yet. Here are some pics of the progress I have made in the past few weeks since I started: Got started on the car junkyard, will do a dirt ground treatment and setup gravel roads around the layout. The pavement is almost done, just needs another coat of paint and need to fine tune the rail crossing a bit. The drag strip is setup and looks good: I still have some buildings I need to assemble, many of the buildings I placed on here for the pics will not be used in the final layout. I just wanted to put some buildings on and check out how it looks so far. Thanks for looking I am having fun with this project and Shane loves watching the trains go around and around and smiles each time they come out of the mountain!
