Building a layout is a project that brings a family together because there's something to do for everyone. Kids learn to work with their hands and about the basics of electricity, carpentry, painting, and how to create scenery. These are skills that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. Grown-ups in the family will have fun, too. We will walk you through all the steps on how to build the table from scratch.

Model Railroad Track And Layout Mistakes To Avoid
 
01:45
Model railroaders free report at http://www.modelrailroadhub.com/free.html With the pressures of getting everything into your railway layout, there will without doubt be temptations to lay the curves and loops tighter than they realistically should be. This approach is generally problematic, even when you’ve done a few test runs with locos and long cars around the curves. Even when the trains run alright – • Does the tighter track curve look really natural? If you intend modeling a present day railroad, car and wagon lengths will be considerably longer than in earlier days. Long rolling stock will make the curves and loops appear sharper than they actually are. • Would a real life-size railroad have curves that are that tight? Most likely not. Real railroad curve radii will be much larger than is possible to accurately scale to fit a reasonable space. The compromise solution is to construct the curves and loops as large as the available space permits - then apply some clever scenic tricks to distract the eye from the curve appearance. • What will happen when you purchase a new locomotive or a longer piece of rolling stock that won’t navigate safely around the curve without hitting something or derailing? In truth this relates to the selection of era being modeled. A scene with big late steam era engines is probably not a wise decision for a confined space. Mining, logging or switching puzzle railroads with shorter cars will be a better choice if your circumstances demand sharper curves. My golden rule is to make your minimum radius AT THE VERY LEAST as large as what’s recommended for the longest rolling stock you intend to operate on your model railroad layout. That’s the way to avoid regrets later. For more tips to help plan your railroad layout, download this complimentary report. It is absolutely FREE.

How To Align Model Train Track On A Modular Railroad Layout

A modular model train layout generally comprises two or more small railroad layouts (called modules) that connect together to form one big model train layout. The modules are designed for easy transportation and reassembly. The aim is for each module to be designed in such a way so as to connect to any of the other modules in the bigger model railroad layout. The number of modules used is only limited by the space available. To download the model train e-book mentioned for FREE go to http://www.modeltrainclub.org/free.html It's well worth reading.

How High Should Model Railroad Benchwork Be?
 
01:34
More model train tips at http://www.modeltrainclub.org/free.html Constructing model railroad benchwork to at an inappropriate height can have a bad impact on the operators and railroad operations. Model trains will generally look most spectacular and realistic when operated close to eye level. If your bench work is built too low, the tracks will also be too low. And, having really low benchwork can cause constant bending so as to access trains and accessories that are towards the back of the layout. Squeezing underneath the bench work to fix or alter the wiring could cause additional problems. Without being very short, or having a double deck or other constraints, around 42 inches would be considered the minimum height for bench work. A height of around 48 inches OR HIGHER would normally be considered more practical, but that would depend on the height of the operator. On the other hand; constructing the bench work too high will cause other problems. The taller the bench work, the more difficult it will be to stretch over and retrieve a derailed car from track at the rear of the railroad. Your friends and visitors (children included) will be keen to view all the details without needing to haul themselves higher to see the train track. With high benchwork you might have to build steps for viewers to climb on to view everything. For additional model railroader tips, download a copy of this FREE Model Train Tips & Ideas eBook. This is FREE to download to your PC and is over flowing with practical ideas.

Model Railways - Not enough staging track or storage?
 
01:54
If you’re into model railroading, you’ve probably already discovered there’s more to the hobby than just running some trains around a track. Apart from having a well thought out layout and a work area, you’ll also need storage space for parts, supplies, and non-operational trains etc. Under the bench is one option for storage, particularly if you are able to pull cabinets out on wheels and still access the under-bench wiring… and that’s important. If you can’t get to the wiring, then that could create all sorts of problems later on. Shelving above the layout is another option to consider. Be careful, though. You don’t want items stored on the shelf to suddenly come crashing down, and become part of your layout, complete with collateral damage. Not a pretty sight! Another solution is to incorporate staging track into your layout. It’s another option if you want to store and/or display more trains. But if you are going to install staging tracks, it is usually best to do so at the planning stage. From experience, I suspect you’ll probably need more than you think, because those staging tracks will soon fill up as your collection expands. Another idea is to have hidden spurs or sidings where trains can come and stay for a while. This can not only add interest, but also provide some flexibility. So, there’s a lot to think about at the planning stage if you want to avoid problems later on. I hope those options and ideas are helpful to someone. If you would like more tips and solutions to think about, you can grab a FREE copy of this Model Train Tips ebook at ScaleTrains.org . It’s packed with ideas… and, right now, it is totally free to download.
