Fiddletown display


Here's today's look at the Fiddletown display. It's a 30" by 36" HOn30 model railroad. There are two loops of track - the bottom track is mostly hidden except where the train comes out to cross the bridges.

I still need to build a deck truss bridge for the upper track on the left side and finish wiring it. Having had a cold the flu all fall have slowed me down a lot!

Later this winter I'll post a little about how this was built.

  1. Fantastic. Great inspiration for the little "pizza" layout I started with a hint of Fallberg.

  2. This is a neat little model railroad! I’ve been posting about E. L. Moore’s projects and in his article ‘Down by the depot’ that appeared in the December ’64 issue of Model Railroader (http://www.30squaresofontario.blogspot.ca/2014/09/e-l-moores-legacy-in-21th-century-all.html digression #1) he describes how to build a depot based on Fallberg’s Fiddletown depot (http://www.30squaresofontario.blogspot.ca/2014/10/the-fiddletown-depot.html). It was the centerpiece of his Elizabeth Valley Railroad (http://www.30squaresofontario.blogspot.ca/2014/04/e-l-moores-legacy-in-21th-century_23.html) Hope you’re feeling better soon and I’m looking forward to your future Fiddletown posts.
