Readers Model Train Layouts: Edward

I receive lots of pictures and stories from readers about their model train layouts (and I always want more). This week I thought I’d share an email and some pictures that I received from Edward Cully from Van Wert, Ohio.

This is what Edward had to say….

I am not a model railroader, yet, just like to play with trains, This is my maxium trackage on a table that is 4 feet 1/2 inches wide by 8 feet 1 1/2 inches long. It has inner and outer loops with double reversing loops, a pullout control panel, two train operation, 3rd transformer for accessories as I can afford them, 10 block sections, 13 remote switches, 6 uncoupler sections, and 3 activator-uncoupler sections. Also, my table is on rollers so I can get around it or move it out of the way. I enjoy your news letter. My name is Edward Cully, trainman 4×8. I am a retired farmer and live near Van Wert, Ohio, USA. I would like to hear any comments on my layout.
