Train Layout by Don Matija

Posted by John Brady on

For the next post in our series about our customers' layouts, we are featuring a layout by Don Matija! 

Many of our customers tell us that they have been in the hobby for years, and spend a lot of time building and refining their train layout. This is the case for Don as well, who said "I’ve had Lionel Trains since I was a child over 65 years ago. Over twenty years ago I started my existing layout. It has grown over the years to what you see here, the majority I’ve bought at Brady's" 

One of the best things about model railroading is that your layout is never done. You can always build on it and expand by adding new accessories or even additional track-- such as an elevated loop!

Zoomed in, this layout looks almost like a photograph of a real place. Adding lots of scenery and details always helps to increase realism. Woodland Scenics has an extensive line of scenery products for those looking to add detail to their layouts.


We at Brady's Train Outlet always enjoy hearing about our customers' layouts and love of trains. Send us pictures and a description of your layout, or share a favorite memory about model trains, and you might win a special prize this month (January)!  December's winner will be announced soon.

We look forward to hearing from you!
