M8 the fun part is taking your time

Buzzy Mees says:

lol its an amazing system but all this stuff cost more than using power tools tho

Making Miniatures with Max says:

Just adding on and what I've to clarify: The ModPodge was there for extra support for the track, so when I was tacking it down it so wasn't moving about especially with track pins in place, And so it fits in perminatly… But then I accidentally got a little bit into the Rail Jointer, which is questionable now if the train will run. plus apologies for the second comment..

Making Miniatures with Max says:

Beautiful work guy's! and I have a 4×8 Kit as well that I bought quite a while ago that I've completed… but am starting to re-install track of my choosing. (the layout previously had had Bachmann track) and needs road bed modification (I can do that with your advice from this video) I just need some more advanced modeling advice, I am working with really uncommon track that's (HO/OO) that was produced in Britain during the 1960's (albeit I am an American) I was working with ModPodge, then tacking it tin with modern Hornby "Railroad" Track pins that have been pushed in, and I accidentally got some into inside of the "Rail Jointer's" or "Fish Plates" however I really don't want to take the track up, I spent 45 minutes to an hour doing that.And was proud but annoyed. I was working a little bit of track (3 sections to get a feel) with one of the tunnels on the lowest gradient, is there a way to remove the substance… but preserve the Scenic Cement and ModPodge underneath the track? would silver solder work… or something else? I am working with Tri-ang Hornby Super 4 Steel track (Just think better built and more uncommon Bachmann steel track,), and don't want to rip off in a funny way, It's kinda hard to get more especially off eBay.. Thanks for the Help if possible! And the reason why I am adding Super 4 is so I can run even some of the oldest HO DC powered loco's built in Britain

Gerrit says:

Woodland Scenics, it seems like you have products for everything, so why arent you marketing us a newspaper equvialent to put under the plaster cloth

Making Miniatures with Max says:

Cool! I actually have a 4×8 layout kit by you! I modified it to best suite Bachmann Ez track, however it needs to be badly updated. with your mountain valley kit ;:)

Connor O'Brien says:

At 1:30 were risers included under the track?

Donald Moore says:

Awesome video

miguel bernal molina says:

Soledad McLain says:

Will this work with Hornby track or Atlas brand track

Dean Lambert says:

I really enjoyed your video you taught me stuff I did not know how to do them before thanks.

Iv Re says:

how much did it cost to build the layout?

grudainc says:

Is the whole system available is one package?

William Spears says:

im using an open grid bench work (Sievers modular benchwork) do i need a plywood base under my woodland scenics to support my N scale trackwork scenery etc

Dave Hollamon says:

Very informative video!! love the music!! really am interested in using you're products now!

Art Maines says:

Hi! I've been trying to find a video about wiring a layout that uses Woodland Scenics products, especially the risers. I want to use a wiring bus and suitcase connectors for power distribution under the layout base. I wonder if you or others have come up with smart ideas for handling the wires from the rail joiners to the underside of the layout. Any recommendations?

Rob Hayes says:

I love this video its very well made and relaxing. The music is wonderful what is it please ? Puts me in a good mood and I would like to listen to it on its own.
Cheers 🙂


My question is what if your using a track system with built in roadbed, like Bachmann's E-Z track.

NManz23 MBTA/CSX Railfanning says:

if i use bachmann ez track, do i use trackbed, or what do i use?

Jansle Farias says:

fantastico seu trabalho muito bonito, muito realistico

KnightTrain 1957 says:

At the 18:20 mark you mention that Woodlandscenics tunnel portals come in HO and N scale. I am going to work in O. Am I wasting my time watching these videos or are there a series of products for O ?

What do you recommend for the elevation % so your locomotives aren 't 'dying'?
