My N-Scale Model Train Setup (Modest but fun!)

Just bought this N-Scale Bachmann model train setup. Great for setup in the dorm, as I can get it up and ready in 10-15 minutes. What you see here is the Bachmann Highballer setup, with extra EZ track straight tracks and a Bachmann Lehigh Valley boxcar. It’s pretty fun, considering it’s Penn State lol. Hopefully I can build my collection a little bigger in the next few months. COMMENT!

Cabride Tour of an N-scale Layout

See the Orlando N-trak Club’s permanent layout from an N-scale track camera. The club is located on the east side of Orlando, Florida. The train room is 30ft. by 60ft. and runs on a Digitrax control system. I forgot how much the run is in scale miles, but when ran at scale speed it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to make a full trip. For more pictures and diagrams of this layout please visit the club’s website at Looking to purchase a N-scale track cam?

Jackson Family N-Scale Model Train Layout

This layout was based on a Woodland Scenics kit and done by our family when our sons were about 13 and 17, about ten years ago. It is 3′ x 6′ in size. The kit contains many of the materials to do the basic landscape and scenes. Ours did not contain the buildings, track, people, vehicles, and additional landscaping materials. Since we made this layout there have been many changes in model railroading. Lighter weight materials for the base, such as insulation foam, and I’d probably use laser cut buildings over plastic because they are not only easier to paint and construct, they tend to look more realistic and detailed. Newer style trees can also give a layout a better look. Anyway you look at it, making a home layout takes a lot of time, patience and money to complete the job. Fortunately we were able to work together as a family and make something that made us all proud.
