I'm getting the 6-car set plus one of the RF&P coaches. I hope I can expand my layout to the entire upstairs so I can run this thing if not, it'll be put on display (if I can get along enough shelf).
I know the drawings indicated 52-seats, just want to make sure the correct info gets out to everyone.
Cool! I hope you can make enough room to run it.
You have any photos of your layout?
A few, I really need to concentrate on detailing and scenery, something I hate to do cause I have ZERO artistic ability. Here's a diagram of the track plan:
The main loop is in a 12x12 space and the section south of the Wye is maybe 10' long (stairs are where the 88" measurement is shown).
There's yet another space south of the turntable that's probably 12x12 or longer, but it contains my workbench and a load of stuff that belonged to my wife (passed in 2014) that I need to pack up into smaller boxes.
Any new plan would only be an extension of the mainline, running around the perimeter of the upstairs. Once I get it cleaned out I may get someone to come in and redo the sheetrock, plaster, and carpet, but I'd have to dis-mantle the layout for that to happen.
It could use it, this was done in pieces and shows it.
