:sad:As of the end of June, we will be moving.  I have just come in from working on disassembeling part of the layout.  I knew we would be moving someday and I never had any hope of finding a new home for Miami Rail Service Company  but my friend and fellow large scale modeler, Harry Kelley, has made me a great offer.  Harry has a nicely finished barn in his back yard.  He has his trains on the main level. Harry has offered the loft as a new location for MRSC.:rah:  We'll have a lot of room prep to get the space ready but it's a big space and I think we'll be able to save at least the essence of the layout.

Well, just when I have this layout about complete I will be starting over, sort-of. :bang: It will be a chance to rethink some things and hopefully make them better.  We did make it here long enough to get our photo-shoot done.  Paul Dolkos came on May 13th and photographed the layout for Model Railroader.  At this time we are scheduled for the 2012 issue of Great Model Railroads.  I hope this all works out but you never know about those things.

BTW, Harry lives about 6 miles from our new home location so the RGS 1/120 layout will be my only HOME layout.  It may be a while before I have much time to work on it bui I'm in no hurry.  I want to enjoy this one.

Unk

The final pix you posted is one of those ones that truly take a second look to see whether  it is real or model. Glad that all that hard work will be preserved.

Howdy Bob-please keep us posted about your move and "reconstruction".. I trust that the Miami Rail Service will keep moving the freight and looking as great as it did under your "supervision". Now, get to work on that cool TTn3.5, I just love that stuff!
