Progress continues.....the word from Tim of Mianne is that the additional benchwork hardware in a few weeks.

Glenn Snyder shelving to go up after the 1st of the year.

....and even though it is 28 degrees outside, preparation of the RossBed continues (I am a little intense)....drying occurs in the garage where it is 60ish degrees....

Looks like a great train room Peter!

Please post pictures when you get all of the trains up on the shelves, so I can show my wife that I'm not so bad !!

Pictures do not do that train room justice. It is well on the way to being a magnificant layout. It was my sincere pleasure to spend a few days with my dear friend putting up these shelves. We had some learnings along the way. Well before the end, we had worked out a process for getting these on the wall!

Like you, I can't wait to see these shelves filled with trains! While Peter didn't mention it, we used every piece he had. Scrap is religated to gondola loads. We ran short by 1/4" on one section. Good luck finding it.....

Peter, now the real question is do you have too much shelf space, or not enough engines and rolling stock to fill them? That is of course a silly question because everyone knows that there is usually something on the layout, the shelves are just for what is not on the layout.

That being said, did you buy enough space to house quite a bit with room to pop more stuff on there, or just enough to alternate stuff out?

A first-class job by Tom, and now you have a whole lot of beautiful shelving to display a whole lot of treasured trains. You two guys obviously work very well together.

A selfie of both of us while nearing completion.......

....and a reminder.....wear your safety glasses like we are.......when you are generating "little pieces" of stuff!
