The purpose of this site is to share progress on the N Scale Model Railroad Layout that is being built in my basement with the help of some great friends and model railroaders. Comments on techniques we're using are welcome as are questions and critiques.

Progress at Gallitzen
We are continuing to make good progress, including quite a bit of recent work at the "top of the hill".
Here Bernie and JB wrestle the turnback section into final position. The section was built at the workbench, allowing wiring and switch machines to be installed without working underneath the layout.
The hole that JB is "testing" allows emergency access to a turnout at the back of the section.
We have also been working on scenery in this location, including finally getting track painted in preparation for ballast, backdrop painting, planting trees, and preparing for the first layer of scenic material representing the open fields just north of the railroad at the east portals.
Here is an aerial view of progress to date.
