I've switched to doing a mostly kit bashed and scratch built layout. This means that I do stuff, but the layout is coming really slowly. I just made small piece of "hand laid" track. I used sectional track and removed some ties then glued in shaved twigs. I just kept doing it until I replaced the plastic with wood and have my first section of track. It's gonna take a while to do this even for a tiny oval layout, but in the end I will have a layout that I built with my own hands. Victory!!! What did you make for your layout that felt like a huge success no matter how small?
