I've created a new YouTube Channel for the OASIS District Layout.

Here's a video slideshow of the construction of the layout.

OASIS District Layout Completed


The OASIS District Layout is now completed, although a model railroad is never truly finished. I do plan to add extra details and tweak a few things on the layout in the future.  

I plan to post additional layout photos in the future and of course, I will be operating the layout quite often.

A sincere "thank you" to everyone who has followed along over the last 5 years!

Layout Update 11-17-22

Lighting System Ordered

The lighting fixtures I want to use for the layout are back in stock! I placed an order, and they should be here by Saturday. 

My layout room uses daylight LEDs, but as you can see in the photo below the valance produces a cast shadow at the top of the backdrop. I'll be using 6500k cool white fixtures behind the valance,and they'll be mounted to the top portion of the backdrop brackets. This should be a super easy install. 

Valance produces a strong cast shadow 

Backdrop brackets at top will hold mounting clips for light fixtures. 

The layout will be completed after the installation of the light fixtures. Well, as finished as a model railroad gets! 

Until next time,
