AstroGoat and CaTT's Model Train Room

Re: Sailor and CaTT's Permanent Layout

Things are progressing... slowly, lest I overdo it and end up back in the VA Hospital ER again... which is not fun.

As many may have noticed, the walls in the train room are brick and block, which are not exactly conducive to background painting and such. I have some ideas as how I want to move forward with that, but I am wanting to see what others have in mind for suggestions.

I would think that the walls being brick or block is an indication of lack of insulation, and that would seem to be an additional reason to put up some studs and drywall. I hear it can get pretty hot in the summer and cold in the winter in GA.

Putting up just a backdrop may be a little less work than full drywall, but it wouldn't help in making the room more comfortable. Or, you could do both, and even cove the corners in the backdrop, which really isn't that difficult, but makes a big difference in the appearance.

Insulation is not really needed to be added, as the room's walls are over 12" thick, with some insulation in the voids in the blocks, not to mention the inner blocks being vapor barrier clad as well. But putting in more studs and drywall would make for easier and better looking shelving though.

Some progress has been made on the train room, and it has been decided that the closet will be redone to fit a twin size bed, for those times where my sleep schedule is badly messed up such that I need to sleep during the day.

Still pondering about the layout, though.

Umm... okay. I have not finalized a design of the layout, but I do intend on making the layout a great one.

Yep, thanks again for the layout.

Now it is a matter of adding more scenery and stocking up on fuses.

More pictures and video to follow soon.
