I am happy to report that renovations on the barn loft are under way.  Harry and I worked saturday and today installing insolation and the first OSB boards on the walls.  We hope to have the area ready to start reassembeling the layout in a month or two.  I am anxious to get Mami Rail Service out of storage.

Hi Unk!

With that much space, you can not only do Miami, but half of Georgia too!

Work is going well on the barn loft.  We were able to brace overhead and remove the two support posts so we now have 28 X 29ft of open space.  We are about ready to start painting and benchwork construction isn't far off.

 

This all started as a way to "save" my Miami layout I had in Abbeville but as this is a joint effort for my friend, Harry (UNCLE HARRY?) and me, a fresh start is in order.

SO........May I introduce "THE LOGANVILLE LOCAL"!!!  This will be a 1/29 scale, current times, CSX, layout based on local switching operations in and around Loganville, Tenn (freelanced namd) near Knoxville on former L&N track.

The Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee are quite a switch from Miami but the conciept is similar.  As hard as it is to plan a point A to point B loyout in HO, it is far harder in a scale as large as 1/29.  So, like the Miami layout, we will focus on what goes on at Loganville.

What goes on is pretty interesting.  Two through freights to work,  Two branchline jobs come and go,  Lots of local industries to switch.

I am attaching a track plan and a diagram of our plans as they now stand.  There will likely be changes and modifications as we build.
