It's been a long time. For the past 25 years I've only set up Christmas layouts around the tree... but, I'm heading to Lowes' now to buy the lumber for the layout. This is going in the attic apartment/office/guest room and it had to pass the wife's approval. So, I'm pinched for space *especially width/depth*. 80% of what I run will run on O31 (Lionmaster steam and Diesels). The few scales I have will run on O54 (even O48 at very slow speed). The layout will have 3 lines/loops of O63, O54 and O48.
Here is how I've been running trains after the tree comes down...
I will post as I go along... hoping for suggestions/observations to keep me out of trouble!
