CHECK OUT OUR NEW VIDEO: SAVING THE DANEBURG SUBDIVISION - EPISODE 3

We've gotten a lot of questions about the Benchwork we've been building for the Daneburg Subdivision. This video gives a quick overview on the process of building these super cool trestle style legs that are going to hold the layout! Keep an eye out for a future blog with the plans for these so you can make them yourself!

Seems like a lot of work for something that’s usually covered up, but it’s a way cool result!

Very interesting and unique benchwork.

Thanks also, for the all too brief look at your home layout. It looks simple, but still fun to operate. I sure would love to see a trackplan! One of the highlights of the fairly recent Mountain State RPM was being able to see some for your craftsmanship in person, especially your car barge.

REALLY sharp-looking supports. I’ve never seen trestle bents for layout supports before and now I’m wondering why? They look super cool.

Anyway, my question is, why did you paint them gray? Why not creosote color?

Thanks,

Galen

You are a true artist! Beautiful benchwork. For what MHO is worth- your decision to go with plywood seems pretty wise. Can’t wait to see how this looks under the modules.
