Ii you’re following Tecchan’s Facebook page, you might have seen that I recently received a parcel from Japan containing scenery parts. I really needed those things to keep working on the layout just because I have to see the real size of stuff to plan the rest.
I needed a real life draft of my layout!
The houses and various buildings help me evaluate the size of the town parts. I also took a set of Tomytec cars so I could try different roads width.
But more important: I had to have the tunnels portals to be able to know the real size of the tunnel and the minimal height of the hill as well. (not seen in the pictures as there’s not much to see)
So I spent some time this weekend building various Tomytec buildings and put them on the layout to have an overview of what it will look like! I already had two buildings, the catenary poles and the Lawson (convenience store) on the left.
I haven’t had time yet to work more on it but even raw like the layout is starting to look cool. I really feel like I’m going somewhere!
Next step: building the hill with the tunnel under it!
