I'm new here and joined because my interests although mainly N scale but love trains and layouts of all sizes.

I would like to introduce my layout built for the seasons festivities. the Piano Top Rail Road. A 4 section nscale layout that has a basic 2 maint rails, 1 siding for Santa's workshop, and a traction line through the city. The city is Baldwin city (Name of the piano)

Hope you enjoy this and I'm always up for critiques ;)

 

Here's a video

Liked the "Nighthawks" scene on your layout.

Great idea... never thought about finding an Edward Hopper painting at a layout :thumb:

Unfortunately I can't watch the video, as it contains "Content of Believe, WMG, Sony Music Entertainment, The Orchard Music and INgrooves" and is censored in Germany. Long live the power of music industry...

The "Nighthawks" scene was also done in O scale by John Armstrong on his layout, and written up in Model Railroader.

John was professional layout designer, who had many layout plans published in MR, and also did designs on commission.
