Continuing on with my story of my early layouts.
The layout shown in the last post was torn down in 1973. Two friends also into N Scale gave me a hand to pull it down in just a day.
As my garage was quite large and after convincing my good lady that the car could stay outside I decided to build the Virginian & Ohio layout not in HO like the one shown in so many articles but in N Scale.
I purchased a copy of Model Railroad Craftsman and set about to draw up my track plan to fit my garage using the V&O as a reference.
So over the next several months we set about building my third model railroad and my first railroad using L Girder.
Peco track and turnouts were still the track of choice and so too was my trusty Duet power pack.
Unfortunately due to me not owning a conventional camera during the construction of this new layout there are very few images.
They might not look to flash by today's standards, remember no home computers in 1974/5, however they worked a treat.
That's it for today.
