      That's a lot of Nuts! up here they are blaming the Squirrel population explosion on the heavy acorns production last year, but that is by far a ton. there have been road kill squirrels all over the place this year, to the point that they have been finding there hungry young'uns and taking them to animal shelters (bad move in my opinion)

      Well...having a layout underneath the oak trees is nice for shade in the summer (although it doesn't do much to reduce the humidity )

      Unfortunately, between the acorns and the branches that fall - it is tough for my buildings and structures.

      I had a branch fall on my turntable bridge so it's time to take it in for repairs...

      I will need to resolder the railing as well as replace a few of the boards.   Not a big deal, but it will take some work.

      and maybe install a storage shelf under that area to prevent this type damage when not in use

      Nah, that would just mean that I would have to remember to take it in each time.   That's probably not going to happen with my memory.

       

      Hey, what were we talking about?

      Bruce;

        Try looking for one of those plastic planters...the cheap ones...some are large enough in diameter to put over the turntable (Upside down), when you are not using the railroad. If it is on the light side, just put several bricks on it to keep it in place.

          Remember the ones we used for keeping the bheer and soft drinks in, with ice and water ?

      I think I've been misunderstood.   I am not trying to protect anything in between sessions -while  I get a LOT of my enjoyment out of operating my railroad, it's almost equal to the enjoyment I get just by looking at it while it's not being operated.   So, I'm not covering anything - ever.   I will repair it when necessary, but it's going to live in the elements.   Crazy, right?

      I understand what you are saying about enjoying your RR just looking at it. It is one of the ways to enjoy it, that is always there for you.
