Step 4: Next Steps
The HO train ran around the room successfully without any problems.
Even though the layout is limited to a main line and a siding I can only run one locomotive at a time. I have looked at DCC and it is a viable next step to upgrade the layout. I have enough space to have 2 or three locos on the layout alternating them around the room.
Taking ideas and experiences from others and incorporating to yours make this a great hobby. Yes... there are a few things I would do different and most likely when I have a chance I will change them. Meanwhile I will enjoy looking at my trains go round and round instead of in a box in the closet. Perfect, no it is not perfect but prefection calls for training and experience with lots of expensive tools.... tools I would love to have but then again I need a large shop to put them in... <;o)
