      Tornado? Hurricane? Nope. Moving

       

      I've taken up all my buildings and am in the process of moving. It's sad to have gone from this:

       

      To the above, but hopefully I can get some track out this fall and run trains, even if all the buildings are packed up.

      I feel for you Dan!

      But you're going to have a new layout opportunity in the new digs, right?

      Dang, but that looks good.  

       

      Where are you moving to?

      That was a really nice looking layout.

      Dan,

      What a shame.  Your plantings in particular are stunning.  Will we get to enjoy your artistry in a new location?

      Thanks for the kind words, guys. I'm just moving a couple hours north to Manhattan (not the NY one  )

       

      The new place has a lot that's almost three times larger, but mostly wooded. I'm still thinking about what to do about a new layout. I'll definitely miss all the live plants and dwarf trees, but don't know how much of that I can replicate under all the trees...

       

      I'm thinking about going more in the direction of Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha--they have acrylic buildings covered in natural materials that blend in to the outdoor setting. That would be a lot of work... but fun.

      Sounds good to me!   I like the "fun" option.

      Always have admired your "Garden RR"  over the years Dan ...especially that pic above ^^^^^^^  as there is A LOT packed into that area that the "EYE" can travel above and beyond if you look .

       

       

      Good luck on the new venture.

      Dan,

       

      I am seeing  an elevated line snaking in and out of those trees in your future...

       

      Have fun!

      I like your thinking Dan on that design direction. The guy who developed that layout has done many others:

      Lots of advantages to making the buildings blend with the materials that are bound to surround them, haha!
