    • Bill;

       

      Best wishes for the new layout.  I hope to have another layout "someday."

       

      Regards, David Meashey

      Their son is into N Scale (I'm fully to blame), but he loves my G Scale layout, too.  

       

      Given the handsome Rock Island "Rocket Freight" livery on the Geep in the thumbnail I can see why your G scale would be appealing.

      (Well, it appeals to me!)

    • It is with a melancholic mind that I share with y’all that the Farwell, Lafayett, Irving, & Prospect will become a fallen flag this spring as my wife and I are moving through the month of June. Melancholic as the new landlords are open to a garden railroad AND have given us the unfinished attic for “storage.”  It has the entire footprint of the classic Milwaukee bungalow. I‘ll have an indoor empire with adequate space for all the large locomotives stored at my parent’s place to operate. 

      I can’t wait to share the new line with y’all.

    • And for the latest update:

      Starting from the road in the center of town and moving to the right..

       

      A little closer picture..

       

      And an even closer picture...

       

      And moving left from the center of town..

       

      Below is an overall look of the right side of the town and area..

       

      And another overall look to the left..

       

      Most of the work being done now is all detail work..  Probably hard to notice unless you compare them to earlier pictures..

      More work on the horse farm area, and the buildings further back..  Also much more definition of the woods on the background

      hills..

       

      So, that's the latest updated pictures...

    • And for last weeks work:

       

      We are starting to spread out from the main street in town and worked on

      the edges of town..   Made a Horse/stable farm just outside town..

       

       

      A closeup of the farm...  More buildings will be added the next time she's here..

       

      Started putting some hills in on the left side of town..  Pencil sketches to be done also...

       

      And that's all for now..

    • You can almost count the bricks

    • Update from last weeks work..

       

      The whole town below..

       

      Below is a closeup of the right side..  If you are wondering about the blue, it's tape so when she's painting or drawing on

      the wall before painting, she doesn't smudge the building tops that the tape covers.

      And a closeup of the left side..

       

      And that's all for now...

    • Bruce, We are hoping folks will be able to visit..

      Am on a list to get vaccinated, so we'll see how that goes...

      Hopefully, by the fall, all this covid stuff will be stable..

    • It's not quite dead yet. Through a G group on FB I got in touch with an online outfit called Frogtown Trains who occasionally offer handbent 20 and 30 inch circles, they were out of the 30 but had a 20 inch offered so I grabbed it. pulled up the Gargraves stuff and set this down instead, had to cut and add a couple 3 inch straights to make it all fit, but this just might work now, it certainly looks an improvement.
