More from the Tracy Train Layout

Last week I posted about a model train layout that was on display in Tracy.

Tonight I thought I would share some more pictures from another visit this past week. I hope to make one more visit before the display is over.

Old German Passenger Train, model railroad, HO ScaleCatching pictures of a moving train is sometimes a bit challenging. Here part of this old German passenger train is in focus and the rest is a bit blurry.

One of the things I like to see are the many different train cars the members put on the tracks. Some of them have some very unique sets of train cars.

Ivy covered house, model railroad, modelsI not only like the trains, but also the buildings and landscapes of the modules. The different models look so realistic. I really like this ivy covered house and it brings back memories of similar houses I have see in Germany.

German town, model, church, model trains, ho gaugeThis is one of my favorite modules and I almost feel like I am visiting a German town. At the moment I am thinking of a visit I took to Aalen, Germany where some of the buildings in the downtown looked just like this.

I also like the church building in the background. But, where are the trains in this picture?

Train modules, ETE, European Train EnthusiastsThis is the corner module just beside the church building and we see two trains going in opposite directions. The modules are set in a square and have two tracks all the way around, with a few sidings along the way.

Train Control, HO Railroad, Model Railroad, Switch HutI really like the detail here. we have a switch man directing traffic coming out of the rail yard. The have a staging area with multiple tracks and this is where they pull out onto the main route.

Ah, this brings back some memories of my train set and some of the buildings that I put together. I must post this before I get too nostalgic and put in an order for some trains.
