Three quarters of our room size sceniced layout (32 x 22) will be removed and remaining will be a three track diorama approx 30 x 3. Obviously a lot of buildings and rolling stock will not be needed. Buildings are all but impossible to ship because of the size of the boxes needed to hold the assembled buildings and required packing material.
To our members - What do you think of having a Saturday open house for anyone interested in the buildings(DownTown Deco, Ameri-Towne, Korber, Atlas, Walthers, scratch built, kit bashed, DPM modules and kits, Menards hotel) to come and when they buy an items, remove it from the layout and take it directly to their vehicle? Prices would be on each building. About five buildings will be retained for the diorama. I would post the Open House information on this Forum and our one local hobby shop. If successful, I'd do a similar open house for the freight cars.
I'd appreciate your comments, suggestions Or is this a hair-brained idea?
Thank you, John
