Site seeing – the Second Hand Inglenook edition – September 20, 2018

I admire modellers who can get to the meat of a project, quickly and with vigour. Gazmanjack (Gary) on RMWeb used second-hand track, wood and other parts from his modelling left-overs to create a stunningly good small layout for operations. Read on for more.


Linden Ford – the second-hand layout

Gazmanjack (his handle on RMWeb) back in 2014 built an outstanding layout from left over bits and pieces, as an adjunct to his current layout, to give himself something to operate on during the other layout’s longer build. I’ve only just found it and wanted to share the forum post with you.

And what a cracker this layout is. I won’t go into too much detail here, as I think the adage of a picture telling a thousand words is true on this occasion. There is plenty of information in the post too on the build including scenery, tree armatures, and so on.

I hope that you find inspiration in the post. So much with so little that turned out so well. Well done Gary!

About Andrew Martin

After a long IT and Telecommunications career in the USA and Australia, I've decided I need a break, I've changed focus and now work in the public transport sector - a complete change of pace. Hobby wise I'm focused on model railway layout building and modelling. I blog, write and publish as often as I am able.

    Thank you Andrew for the addition to your blog. The photo you show above is in the mid stage of the build as you would have noticed in the RMweb thread that there were many more additions to the little layout. On its second exhibition, I took out ‘Best New Layout’ at the 2015 Epping Model Railway Exhibition in Sydney.

    • Thanks for commenting on the article and giving more information Gary. I really liked the layout and thought it was a great idea to share with my readers. Glad to hear that it was well received too.
