Jerry, smart to make the layout movable. The realtor told me to leave it up during showings so I had to scramble to pack up and tear down.  The layout was bolted together in sections so it might have been movable. But it wasn't to be. Did you use the same construction as the club layout. Looks like it would make moving easy.

Just to make Bill happy and keeping it going, I am posting one of two pictures of my current layout.


Hopefully one of these days things will improve and I'll feel comfortable to travel to see it and work on it again.


Yes, I followed a similar way of construction as the club layout, foam and light weight construction.  I didn't use the same connectors because they're too expensive, so I just used spade connectors instead.  Since I don't plan on a lot of set ups and take downs, that's fine. 

Every realtor I've talked to didn't want the trains in the basement since they took up too much room.  Too bad, since I could really use a bit of a train fix about now.  It took me almost two weeks to pack up my trains and I'm still not completely done! 

It measured 10'x18'

Here it is at the lasst time I hosted a club meeting

I guess now it will never be finished.

BTW, I like the water tower too!

Sorry I couldn't find a way to send it "off line".

Take care,
