Bad news...perhaps as soon as this weekend, I will begin dismantling the layout. We are downsizing our primary home and renovating our coastal home. All within the same couple of months.


Good news...It was built to be dismantled and relocated to a bigger, better spot.


I'm hoping to start early and really pack everything with great care. That's why I want to get started well in advance of the pre-move/last minute mayhem. I also expect to make some decisions about what I need to keep or not. Anyone need a Digitrax system with a couple of wireless throttles?

Alright, back in action...I took possession of my new layout room and spent a little time figuring out how I wanted to go with the trains. I very much love the shadowbox modules I've begun for the controlled lighting and viewing and the "finite" sense of the project...In other words, detailing and completing the smaller area is a lot less daunting than staring at a whole undone layout with so many other time pressures in my happy life.


I built a simple 4x12 foot L-girder platform that I will build upon, incorporating the two existing "boxes" which were built for this move. However, I'm not moving again for the foreseeable future as this is our completely renovated, built to order, waterfront dream home that we plan to someday retire to. I will build the layout upon this framework with similar shadowbox features without necessarily going module by module. Many happy years of modeling ahead...

Glad to see you back at it John!  I have the rest of Cundy Harbor in my garage whenever you're ready for them.  No rush though.  I know you have lot's of things going on.   ;)

Good to see you back in the train room John, I do believe that room would fit perfectly for Normal Scale though  ;) ;) ;)
I love photo's, don't we all.

Hi John Welcome back to the living.  A question for you.  I am thinking about scratch building the siding in Pelham where your family had its operations.  Do you recall the types of building?  I seem to remember some open sheds.  I'm also going to try looking up the  rail/real estate maps for info.  Thanks Jim and have a great summer
