Not sure I have ever posted my micro layout here.

I quick video of a train running today.

The train belonged to the Late Verne Niner a close friend of mine.

The micro layout was a fictitious end of the line industry for Verne's layout.

That was fun.  :)

So how long to build that entirely, start to finish (just curious).

Thanks Todd,

That is a hard question to answer.

I recycled the engine house, shop and two cabins from past projects.
The layout was then 95% complete within 10 months.

I have been pulling it out every 6 months for the last 4 years,
and changing around details or adding more as I felt the need.

All of this was done as a diversion from the main layout,
when I felt I needed a jump start.

Micro layouts are a great way to work on something different,
so you don't get stale.

Work continued on the Micro layout today.

I picked up a 6' folding and started to build a fiddle yard,
so I can take the layout to shows if need be.

There is now enough storage for 5 small trains and 3 critters off the layout.

The Layout will live on it's small base most of the time but it is fun to play.

Looking good Larry,

and "play" is a most important part of our great hobby,

so it's good to know that you intend to indulge!
