“It’s been 20 yrs in the making, just never had the “gumption” to do it. I always thought that because of the seasons we have that the maintenance would be a real pain. Now that I’m retired what else do I have to do but put the effort in. Really, my adult son’s doings, I think they want to keep me busy !
I’ve shared what you have sent me on all the projects under way and that got them psyched. So my wife and I went away for a brief vacation and the boys went to work.( I’m still trying to figure out what they did that I haven’t found out about ! lol lol ) I will send you progress pictures and videos as we go. Awaiting for some what will be nice additions, Bridges and more rolling stock. Waiting till it all gets balanced and secured before we break out the real expensive toys.
Really a big work in progress every time I speak with the boys there always either a slight change here, siding there, new track coming for extension areas, I never know. This I do know it will be a triple bridge extending over the pond stream, a tunnel which was planned years ago when doing the pond, a small rail yard and long runs with limited switches although there are a few manual/ powered. So I guess you can call it an “Over under 8″. Hope to have track laid in beds this weekend ? Lot of rain is to be coming for the next three days as well as a holiday so I’m not sure why that does to the schedule.
Keep the ideas coming !
Did you find the video as mesmerizing as me? I think it’ll be a cracking layout in time. Can’t wait to see the progress pictures.
