Do you have a layout? Photos?

I am going to go ahead and add some pictures of my layout. I don't work on mine very often. I usually end up just running trains on it instead of doing anything else. Since the only time I really get to work on it is after my five year old goes to bed, and then I usually only work on it on the weekend after my wife goes to bed. I call is a semi-permanent layout, I am fairly certain I will be having to tear it down in a few years when we are able to get some work done on the house we own.

Since the only time I really get to work on it is after my five year old goes to bed, and then I usually only work on it on the weekend after my wife goes to bed.   Boy I know that feeling well. 3 kids all school age and yes it doesn't get any better as they get older( Music lessons, Band, and other after school activities, nd other life issues) , . Some work while they were in school but mostly at night after everybody went to bed. Have a huge backlog of Kadee conversions now as lately all I want to do is sleep.  Layout looks good try to post some more pics to see what you have.

IMG_0016IMG_0016ed [3)IMG_9784xIMG_0191IMG_0180b_edited-1IMG_0176b_edited-1Luvindemtrains mentioned (and thank you, sir, for your approval of my layout) his having bare plywood. My intention in suggesting participation on this thread was to encourage and invite a sharing of ideas and accomplishments that benefit us all by seeing what we have had and may still have, or have begun. Exposed plywood is part of the fun and accomplishment (see middle photo above).

The thread inviting "what did you do on your layout today" is popular because it has us all sharing what we have worked at presently. However, some of us no longer do work on a layout, aside from maintenance or operating, or have had one we don't change but enjoy just the same.

Sometimes, a layout is simply enjoyable to look at, realizing, "Hey, that's all mine!" Enjoy what you have. Or had. Then, come tell us about it here, if you please.

All of the layouts shown along this thread so far, are amazing in their diversity of creativity and enjoyment of our hobby. Clearly, a lot of guys are having a whole lot of fun. One of the many fine examples of loads of fun would be seeing Barry's layout, which was a particular surprise for me because I had never realized he had one. (May we see more, Barry?)

Shown here is, however, a place on my layout I did change not-too-long-ago, which was mentioned in a Run of OGR. As our editor pointed out, I wanted to open up the view from the aisle into the RR service yard, so I changed plenty of what was around it. "What was" is shown in the top two photos; then, you can see the same area stripped. Next, comes how it is nowadays.
