      "If I can ever clear out my garage again I can get back to work on this, track is down

      but its covered by boxes currently. Gotham Harbor switching layout"

       

      Vic, is that track plan all LGB R1?

      It would be a lot of fun with 0-4-0 and little diesels with short 2 axle cars.

      Yes, all R1, the plan is to use Aristo 0-4-0s and Piko 0-6-0Ts as primary movers, all the freight cars are modified shorty cars like Eztec and Scientific cars modified with trucks and bmann knuckles.

      I have the garage. My wife has the ENTIRE house!

      In Australia that's known as his shed/her shed   

       

      Ah, the old "He shed / She shed" argument.

      But as Vic implies, SWMBO always wins. But go for it Vic, make that shed, declare the house hers, and claim imminent domain on the garage!!

      And post videos.

      Went to the house for a pre purchase building inspection and took a couple of pic of the space down the side of the house which is on the shed side of the block.

      The first 2 are down the side of the house, the third shows the outside of back corner of the big shed looking toward the small shed.  The clothes line is going to move SWMBO has ordered that so who am I to argue especially when it frees up train space.

      Looking at those trees and thinking you probably aren't going to need a snow plow; and wondering whether there might be a carfloat in your future.

      OK. Found the right thread(s)

      - There is one long one on the latest phase of indoor construction here: http://www.largescalecentral.com/forums/topic/26294/cvsry-indoor-division-phase-iv/view/page/1

      - And one here with tons of detail about how it is operated: https://www.largescalecentral.com/forums/topic/26529/1st-invitational-op-session-on-cvsry-indoor-div/view/page/1

       

      Nothing special as far as scenery goes, but fun to operate.

      If it snows in this place pity help those in cold climates.

      It is about 5 hours by road to the Tropic of Capricorn only snow I will see is when I defrost the fridge.
