I've moved to the new flat

Postby Arseny » Sat Apr 20, 2013 4:41 pm

I've moved to the new flat several days ago.
I am still in Saint-Petersburg, Russia (and even in the same borough), but now I live near the "Sosnovka" ("Pine-place") forest park.

Some views from my windows:

And if I go out of my doors and go 200 meters...

My new flat is 3-room ("2-bedroom" in american notation?)
And where are you living?..

Yess!!! 8-)

And I hope I'll be able to build a 1.5-1.8m*1m (approx.) layout here.
I am just reading some Model Railroader issues now, concerning 4*8 ft H0-layouts :wink:

For example, I love their "Turtle Creek Central" layout (published in Jan 2002) or Virginian layout published in Jan 2012...

1.5 X 1 meters is plenty for a nice small layout. You can do a single loop and a bunch of switching! That's what I would do anyway :)

We are in the midst of moving to a new house ourselves and will have more room for all of the trains.

I think I'll decide on this one:

Another option is this one:

we discussed it here:

january-2012-model-railroader-project-layout-t1361-10.html

- but I am afraid it will be too difficult to me to build the mountains; it is my first layout

What is your opinion about Tillig's EW1 switches? I have a lot of them; won't I have some problems if I use it on the layout?..

There is a very good video on the dream plan build dvd series of switching operations on the turtle creek rr. Don't have it anymore or I would try to upload. you can probably find it on the Model Railroad you tube site.

Ok, I'll try to find it; but what is your advice - Turtle Creek or Virginian? :think:

Yes, you are right :wink: and it's another reason. :wink:

So... do you advise the first one? Turtle Creek?
