Question by : Where can I look for info, either the internet or book, on building scale model towns like those for railroad?
I want to construct a town for my halloween village collectibles but having a hard time finding information and tips on how to construct these things. I anticipate it turning into a long project and not something I want to rush through. I want to replicate Halloween Town, Nightmare Before Christmas

Answer by david c
I did two goog searches using these terms:

Lionel 752w engine
and
diagrams of lionel train motors

Looks like there are a few books
that are published on the subject.
Kalmbach publishes one of them.

I’m not that familiar with train stuff,
but I’m willing to bet you could find a good
contact through one of those links.

HD- A Look at Two Fabulous Model Railroads from May 2011

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Watch in High Quality! This video features two of my friend’s spectacular model railroads in the Santa Ynez Valley. The first railroad seen is the “Morgan Mountain View Railroad”. Only a small portion of this humongous G Scale layout is seen in this video. Unfortunately I was unable to take more footage. The two trains seen on this layout are a UP Mixed Freight and a Santa Fe Cattle and Reefer train. The second layout seen is the “Santa Ynez Valley Redwood Railway”. This O Scale layout was having a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new addition of their “Stockton Yard”. This outdoor layout has two separate yards, two mainlines, a Tehachapi Loop, and over 1000 feet of track. The trains seen running on this layout are two UP SD70ACe’s pulling a mixed freight and a set of oilcans, a mail train pulled by the infamous Santa Fe 3751, and the freedom train. Enjoy the HD footage of these two spectacular layouts! Thanks for watching ©UnionPacific18 2011
