Great tip for making railroad tunnels

“If you trains ever derail in a tunnel, it’s a real pain.

Get round it by using an old picture frame in the scenery. Bin the glass and use the frame and the backing, face down, in the scenery.

Just take the backing sheet of to get inside your tunnel – and as most railroad layouts have bushes, fences or vegetation it’s easy to hide the ‘ridge’ of your frame.”


Another reason to use simple railroad layouts…
