Many thanks Tom.

I'll investigate.

Your pictures make me think of Copland's Hoedown.  :cb:

Beef, it's what's for dinner. 
Keep working on yer stuff, I'm loving it.
 
I was thinking... why to go to all the trouble with the map,
until I read that you want to print a full size one for the layout. 

Kewl.  :shades:

Steven,

I take that as a great compliment. Thanks. 

I wish I could say that the map on the wall was the motivating factor,
but just plain old nuts really drove it.

I would have known it said Tombstone and it would have made me crazy.

Look familiar?





Yup the old YCW is back in the mix.

I had to spend yesterday and today clearing out space in the garage for some work I have to have done.
Therefore I had to get the server cabinet out of the middle of the train room and move the old layout back in.

I will finish stripping off the old rail and start to figure out the new arrangement.
Since my desk/workbench has moved to another room the depth is no longer an issue.





I do like the town layout better on here and I can maintain my 15" minimum radius for my 4-4-0.

Coming together nicely Tom and with all the recycling,
I reckon the township should be called Resurrection City!  ;)

I presume there will eventually be a path,
to allow the congregation to get to the church on the high ground.

Nice spot so that it overlooks the township.

I take it you are scraping the "old new layout",

and putting into play the "new old layout"?

:)

But I see about a 2 foot expansion on the left.

Doug,

Resurrection City.
Darn you.
I like it and it even fits with the "history" of the city.
I just finished making the stupid Yellow Creek map...

If you go back and look at the last photo in the second post of this thread,
the camera is looking down toward the church area
(before I stripped off the flora and accouterments).

The original idea was that the path to the church is mainly "off camera".
That said I have been considering a bridge or land form,
connecting the ridge to the town center.

That makes my head hurt.

The new old layout will be resurrected as the basis for the new new layout.
The old new layout will become fill for the new new layout,
and the rail from the track on the old old layout will be re-purposed as the rail for the new new layout.

Clear?


Actually 2.5 foot by about 4 foot,
so about ten more square feet of modeling bliss.

Howdy Tom, I have "reused" parts of previous layouts...
structures, details, and entire sections with trackwork!
Why start over when what you have works, just maybe in a different situation.
Much of my old outdoor pike, the Mogollon Railway, was in sad shape from being outdoors in the Texas sun,
and occasional rain that happened (always does) when the layout wasn't covered up.
But some of it is now in the garage and being used.
Makes me think, maybe I'll post some pix of "then and now" with the recycled stuff.
Something to do (as if I ain't got enough!).

Woodie

Woodie,

I think your idea of then and now shots is excellent.

I know I would love to see it.

Tom
