    This is one beautiful layout and is a inspiration for any who want to get
    into ho scale trains. I am in the process of getting back into trains and
    am thinking about using either Sievers or Mianne ready made bench work
    because of time constraints and being the worst person on earth when
    involved in any sort of carpentry! ?

    Thanks i used to be BIG into Lionel trains (O gauge) i have alot of it and
    after a while of not using them i decided to get into HO, i have 3-4 engine
    all of which are small. I have a few train cars but i really want to get
    into the bigger better stuff, like what i had with my O gauge layout. I
    really appreciate your help. (sorry if this was a rant)

    If you’re just starting out in model railroading, I recommend you get a
    couple track planning books (my favorite is Track Planning for Realistic
    Operation by Armstrong) and start planning a small layout. Don’t try to
    build your perfect layout for your first layout. In HO a 5×9 or 6×10 layout
    is great to start with. For N a regular 4×8 is fine. Use this layout to
    practice techniques for construction, and run whatever kind of trains you
    want. You can narrow down your era and prototype later.

    I cant wait to see this done!, gives me inspiration, is there a special way
    to start something like this? Starter kit, or table.
