My HO train layout
by Russ Suender
I used a 6x6 foot section of thick plywood for the base supported by two sawhorses. I bought a cheapo Bachmann train set and an oval track layout. The steam locomotive gave me a lot of trouble, so I bought a Bachman San Francisco cable car which runs better than the locomotive did. The couplers on the rolling stock also gave me a lot of trouble being that they weren't Kaydee style. The layout theme is the 1930's era with a working silver mine, a wharf, an abandoned haunted cemetery (with a zombie and vampire rising from the grave, a South Western USA village, and a large farm with a home, barn, and sheds. More scenery to add. I added quite a few scratch-built structures for the wharf and the village.
