Thank you guys. I am thinking of setting up a temporary layout outside in the designated permanent layout area to see how it looks and have a spot to run the train(s). Christmas decorations are taken down tomorrow, so a good time to move it outside.
The bad news is that I am not sure when I will be able to start on my permanent outdoor layout, my employment ended on the 31st (no sadness, I knew it was coming - the sadness is for all the employees I had to terminate although they also knew it was coming) and there is no extra cash for purchasing track, etc. I am glad enough to have a bit of stuff already to be able to run something.
I may be able to start on something On30 in a newly opened spare bedroom (another sad thing, I had to put down my feline companion of 19 years). I think I have most everything I need to start on a module that I can add to later. Those On30 4-6-0 loco's that are on sale at Trainworld are EXTREMELY tempting although they do not fit into my current ideas. I will start something in the On30 forum when I am ready to ask a bunch of questions and run ideas past you all.
