Dan Morgan

Dan Morgan fell in love with model trains at the age of six when he visited an NMRA Convention in Seattle with his father. Forty two years later, his passion remains just as strong. After achieving a successful career in architecture, Dan’s particular interest is within layouts and buildings. With a wealth of knowledge on the subject, Dan loves nothing more than sharing this with others and is delighted in the forum of members who are brought together over the hobby they have in common. Dan lives with his wife Helen in Washington. As a professional painter, Helen has learnt through Dan about Model Trains and they now enjoy working on projects together. The only member of the family who isn’t allowed to join in is their over-enthusiastic Labrador called William who has been strictly banned from the workshop! You can find Dan on Google here!

    I was wondering what Cody used for a base. It looked like some kind of material he had cut to size. Thanx

    After spinning my wheels, for too long a time, Cody Grivno’s video, on scenery, may have given me some traction. I’m hoping his methods are as easy as they look, and as light-weight as they seem. While looking at the many videos has been enjoyable, NOW I am ready to get down to the real nitty-gritty of creating my long-delayed layout. Thanks, a bunch!!!!!

    Hi Cody, your presentation was very good as always but I am left with some disappointment when you applied static grass without the static charge that makes them stand up. I hope you will demonstrate a static grass application using a monster static grass charger that would be grounded with a nail or screw underneath the layout that would require rubber boots and gloves to operate. No, not a good idea? I really would like to build a static grass charger that would do a larger area using multiple grounds under the layout or diorama.

    Styrofoam packing blocks can be had for free and the interesting shapes can inspire one to build mountains and structures that would not otherwise come to mind.
