Have you ZZeen it? 

Expandig my Z-scale model railroad with new sections

Parts of the old layout was finished in 1991, like the bridge you can see picture of on the left side of this page. The model is very little, the bridge mainspan is only 20 mm high. The modell of the bridge is scratch-build, using small pieces of wood, a total of more than 1600 pieces of Northlands are used.

Expanding the old layout
There has been no activity on the layout for some years, in spring 2002 the major part of the old layout was destroyed, and planning for e new extension was in work during the winter 2001-2002. The new layout will be with much less track, so the old "spaghetti"-style layout will not be continued. Only the small section (100x60cm) from the old layout, with the big wood trestle, will be saved for the new layout. That part will also be remodeled, with new rock castings, more trees and new colors.
The new layout will be build in at least two stages, the first section will be a complete solution, and it can be extended with another stage, to give even more tracklength to run the nice little trains on.

There are slow progress in the building of the new layout, but some work are normally been done from week to week. Stay tuned and come back soon for an update:
