HO Scale Layout-- Post 2 (10/30) Platform Construction

Posted by John Brady on

Platform construction

Lumber choices are not the best at the time of the build. The bow in the wood will be corrected by creating "L" girders.

L girder after being glued and screwed is now true and structurally sound.

Pre set screws and clamp makes it easy to do all the assembly by oneself.

Normally would use 2x4 for legs, but the only 2x4 I could find were cork screw and twisted. Creating legs with 2x2 and 2x3 glued and screwed L girders were actually a less expensive way to go.

Fully assembled base.

Layout fitting to base.

 Layout in the HO and N DCC locomotive display area.

Next, the scenery fun begins.
