Turing Your Layout into a Centerpiece
This is where the layout starts to transform into a focal point, the fascia and curtains help guide anyone looking at the layout towards the focal point which is the scenery and track. I also install the lights so we can actually see the model because once the roof section is complete not a lot of natural light will be able to get into the layout. Finally some foam is added between the tracks so that it's ready for scenery. It's exciting seeing the layout come to life and this was a big change!
Wiring a DCC Model Railroad
In this article and video I'll be guiding you through the process I've decided to use to wire the modular model railroad. This is not to say everyone must do it the same way, more so that this method works for me and there's a good chance it will work for you, especially if you are choosing to build a modular layout that needs to have the option to connect and disconnect the modules. This will make great wiring for a convention layout that will travel around to various train shows.
Laying Track for a Modular Railroad
In this article and video I'll be taking you on a step by step journey on how I lay track, specifically for joining modular model railroads together. It can be a challenge to get them to align perfectly however with the method I'm using in the video you should have no problems being able to lay good reliable track that keeps the trains on the track.

Build an EXTREMELY tiny RC Truck & Obstacle Course - *You Can Drive On!*
I’ve built many different dioramas and model railroad modules over the years and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to shrink down and walk around inside some of them! At the moment shrink rays haven’t been invented so the next best thing is to drive a tiny RC vehicle through them instead!
