This video series, hosted by Michael Gross, will teach you the simple how-to workshop techniques you need to know to take an HO scale electric train set and make it a scenic model railroad. We’ll show you how to build a 4×8 model train table (benchwork) from plywood, lay sections of track, create easy realistic scenery using foam and paint, assemble model buildings, and wire your layout with a DC power pack. When you’re done, youll have a railroad that operates well and looks real. Our techniques would work in N, O, S, G, or Z scale also.

I wish I wasn't just a starter and knew more about train models to discuss with him for an hour ;_;

Arthur Ashema says:

so with the layout your teaching people to build, is it possible to extend it and add to it or do you have to take the skills you tought us and build another one but to your own liking

Michael Gross is so cool. I wish I could just sit down and discuss model trains with him for like an hour.

It would've been really nice if GreatestHobby would've labeled these videos like "1" "2" "3" "4" and so on, to give the viewer an easier way to follow.
