Model Train Slide Puzzles #1 to #3

slide puzzles trainsSomething a little different for you this week…

Below is a link to 3 slide puzzles featuring model train layouts. They look simple but will take a few minutes to solve. When you click on a picture square next to a blank square it will move across to fill the blank square. Keep moving the squares until a picture is formed with each square of the puzzle in its right place.

    Interesting puzzles, I never did get one solved. I prefer jigsaw puzzles.

  • Bobsays:

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen this type of puzzle. Took me 4 minutes to get one. Thank goodness they were not 4×4 or 5×5; I would have been at it for hours. Thanks for the fun.

  • Rich Farroughsays:

    I think there is something wrong with the setup of the puzzles. On all 3 of them I find two tiles need to be swapped to finish the puzzle. I spent a considerable amount of time trying to solve these. I just played other online puzzles and was able to solve 3 of them in under a minute each.

  • Gerard Bohlmannsays:

    Interesting puzzles. Tip – Number the tiles 1 to 9, including the blank one, based on where the tiles need to be in the final picture. Makes it easier to figure out.

  • Johnnysays:

    Stupid fun. Loved them. Took me way too long to solve them (I got too involved in the cool pics to concentrate on the puzzle).
    Keep them coming, and thanks for your blog.

Use Tiny Railroad Micro Controllers

A micro controller is basically a small programmable computer device to help the model railroader “make things operate.” It is clever way to realistically replicate the movements, actions and functions you are likely to see on a full size railroad.

It’s YOUR Railroad!

Your rolling stock and locomotives might actually be the center of attention on your layout, but the scenic features that surround and envelop your layout is what's likely to make your train setup stand proud of the rest. Your selection of scenery and structures will add an element of customization that will make your railroad truly unique.

Scenery, structures, and fine detailing is a fundamental aspect of any good model railroad, particularly if it is intended to replicate a true-to-life railroading scene. How realistic or authentic you make your railroad is entirely up to you... and you alone.

Some enthusiasts like to replicate every tiny detail so as to accurately depict, in every aspect, a miniaturized version of a real life scene.

Others in this hobby adopt a more "free-style" approach and choose to mix and match accessories and features they personally prefer. Even though the purist will possibly be unimpressed with unrealistic or out of context elements, it is YOUR railroad layout so you can make it anything you personally want!
