Bob-the "old coot" in Dallas is now wishing that dream layout was located in FIJI or maybe HAWAII...
somewhere that ain't 10 degrees!

Actually, my dream layout right now, would be about 15 feet of test track.
 

I've found out I like re-powering, re-wiring, adding sound, adding lights, capacitors, etc to locomotives.

Far more than building scenery!


Now I just have to wait until the garage unfreezes so I can build my "dream test-track layout".

Right now all I have is three feet of track glued to a board.

:f:

I guess that's what happens,

when an aircraft mechanic takes up model railroads.

Hmmm... gotta say that I wouldn't want anyone's layout.
As good as some of them have been, none have ever caused me "layout envy".
The only layout I want is the one that I create.
That's just how I roll. :P


Dwayne,

I couldn't have said it better...

I second a lot of thoughts expressed by those tipping their hats to some in the hobby who inspired them,
and I owe a debt of gratitude to many modelers who shaped my own work over the years.

But when I close my eyes,
it's my own layout in 'completed' form I see.

Now that I've had time reflex on all the time, work, money,
and freezing my A--off !!!! to build my first home layout.

I'm going to take back my first choice of (John Allens layout),
and pickup my own R&P Lumber Company layout.

That I regret having to dismantle because we moved,
and I still miss till day.

That's a real nice scene, Ronnie.
I understand why you would miss it!

My previous layout was built in N, and I enjoyed it for 10 years.
I can still see every inch of it in my mind's eye.
I have decided my NEXT layout will be portable, so it can move if and when I do!
