Building the Table (Part 1)

A couple of months ago, I got the go ahead to buy some track to build the layout I’ve been dreaming of building since I was in highschool.  Atlas HO-23.


The track plan requires a 5′ x 8′ table and I’ve only ever had a 4′ x 8′ table.  My old layout was fairly simple and as you can see this one is pretty complex.  I decided to add a little extra room and planned for a 6′ x 10′ table, so I could expand things and have more room for a larger yard and possibly a round house for the engines.

David and I spend a couple of hours building the frame for our table.  He’s pretty excited about the whole process. 🙂
