Another small layout.

In On30,  this was about 3' x 3'


I managed to install DCC and sound into this little engine.

What's the big thing behind the engineer ?

The speaker enclosure ?

That's all the DCC and speaker stuff. 
There just wasn't much room to put stuff.

Sounded good though as I remember. 

Still have it.
Not sure which bin it is in. 


The wife decided that it was time to clean out the garage,
and get everything organized. 

Which translates to, now I can't find anything!

Not sure why she had an issue,
just because I haven't cleaned the garage in 16 years. 


Sometimes women just don't get it.

Here is a (4 x 4 feet) portable HO layout I built about 25 years ago.
It folded up in half, kind of like a suitcase. 

It was a bit on the heavy side, didn't know about foam way back then. 
But it was solid, and none of the rails got out of alignment.

There were plans for expansion, but never got that far. 
Too many moves, caused the layout to be abandoned.

Hi Michael  :wave:


Now THAT'S the kinda funky-junk, I'd like to have rolling my way !  :thumb:





If only 'Tri-ang' hadn't mastered the art of injection-moulding ...  :)

... & 'Hornby Dublo' hadn't found that tin-plate was so cheap !  :P

An alternate history, might have meant the 'Transcontinental' range was DIECAST !!  :shocked:


Nice to have those personal historic photos.  :thumb:


I have 2 boxes of about 5,000 or so 'Kodachromes', taken by my Dad ...  :shocked:

... there's probably 1 or 2 frames in there, of my early 'Tri-ang Hornby' layout !  L: 


How's the house "re-modeling" going ?  ???

Filed for divorce yet ?  ;) [whack]


:java::us:


Si.

House re-modeling:

Things have slowed (stopped?)
as we wait for flooring to show up.


I didn't realize just how much I have in trains,
until the garage was cleaned out.
 
Now everything is in totes and labeled.


Divorce?  No. 

But have considered getting a couple of burros,
and just wandering around the Death Valley region,
for the next several years.


Which brings up something else.
 
We are talking about making a move out of California. 
Just getting too crazy here. 
We'll see how that goes.


For the funky HO stuff. 

Sometimes you just can't help yourself,
when you stumble across something,
that really grabs your attention. 

Don't know what I'll do with the caboose,
but it is kind of cool.
