for a newbie?
By that I mean something to get started with track
layouts/benchwork/etc. It's easy to get trains/scenery etc. All the
books I read say I need this magical stuff called 'homosote'. Tried
three nearby lumber yards - nobody has heard of it. Online search says
the nearest supplier is 33 miles from me. Not really interested in
renting a truck just for this. I've seen Woodland Scenic benchwork but
it looks to small and I'm not sure how sturdy it can be for that low
price. However the scenery to go on top seems expensive for a bunch of
foam and I'm not sure if it has the appropriate plywood/homasote substrate.
I'm interested in building a modular layout where I can swap out say a
forest section for a desert section, etc. Each module would have common
entry/exit points for the track.
Anything like this out there?
