After building the benchwork and laying track, the CTT staff got to work creating scenery for this layout, including a backdrop that splits this compact layout into two distinct scenes. Get the full story in the March 2014 issue!

  1. I like the idea of a central backdrop with a rural scene on one side and an urban scene on the other. I thought that the scenery looked very nice.

  2. Another brilliant layout with a fantastic transition between the 2 scenes. This layout and the most recent project layout in Model Railroader have inspired me to complete my own layout which seemed to have hit a dead end of late. Thanks
    guys!

  3. Very Interesting! This was fun to watch, but I would have like to have seen the train running through the scenery after the work was done!

  4. I am planning a new layout that will be built later this year. I am going to utilize some of your building techniques. I commend the Classic Toy Train staff for their expertise.

  5. This video is great! Man you guys work alot faster than I do. I am building a new layout and have picked up a few tips and ideas from the articles and videos.

  6. Yes, not a beginner's how-to, but is a great overview, start-to-finish, "here's what to expect as the railroad progresses". One thing, "Day 4" involved at least three clothing changes. That's a lot of wardrobe for one day. Keep up the great work…

  7. Great article; CTT has always proven to be a wealth of information for me in my efforts to go "railroading!" Cool video – if only my work went that fast (than again, it might take all the fun out of the hobby, not to mention the satisfaction of building a railroad).

  8. Jeez, I worked up a sweat just watching that thing!

    Man, you guys know how to WORK! Or was it a coffee overdose?
