The following page is following the construction of a G scale model railroad build for Thomas the Tank Engine week on Idaho Northern and Pacific Railroad in Emmett, Idaho. The model railroad layout was a joint effort by Courtenay Enterprises and Jitterjunction. Click on a thumbnail photo for a larger image. The railroad overall size is approximately 8' x 16' with three levels of track to allow the running of three trains at once.
From design to run the layout took about one week. The above photos of the layout in assembly were done over a weekend time period. After everything was fitted into place the roadbed was painted a brown color. There will be wire mesh covered with sod and small live trees to finish the landscape. There also will be several rocks to simulate a dry river bed.
The following photos were taken on Tuesday evening 6/18 upon setup of the model railroad on site. It is beginning to take shape!!
And finally we have a completed railroad! The following group of pictures were taken on Wednesday 6/19. There are still a couple of pieces of sod and some trees that need to be put in place. See you all in Emmett, Idaho!!!
