Six Weeks of Construction in Three Minutes: Another Video of the Thompson River Canyon Layout

Another video! And just a day after the first one was posted. This time you can see the construction of the Thompson River Canyon N scale layout from start to finish in just over three minutes--from photos to video at the end.

  1. I found your Blog through the Video posting you did on Model This is really an inspiring project - both in it's execution and in your reason for creating it. I'm just getting started in the hobby and a relatively simple track plan like this seems like a good place to start. Would you mind answering a few questions about your track / layout and engine? Regardless, It's great that you took the time to post in-progress pictures. Part of the fun of hobbies like this is seeing how everything comes together. Thank you!

  2. Happy to oblige. The track is Atlas, the locomotives are Kato, the cars are a mix of manufacturers. A simple loop and scenery is a great way to learn a number of techniques.
