Building a layout means thinking with head more than heart at times
Sometimes you want one thing, but need another. When building a layout for operations, you sometimes have to think with your head more than your heart. What this means to me is, I need more infrastructure than I do a shiny new diesel or great new freight car that has just been released. One engine improves one train, a new car helps one industry. I recently improved my modeling budget by some good selling on EBAY, and flush with spending cash, I could have gone out and picked up a new RTR engine or cars. But....these rechargeable 9 volt batteries will help every throttle I have for years, and ones my friends bring over also. The wheels will ensure great operation as they are proper gauge and free rolling. they will also stay cleaner.
I have been investing in better wiring for my DCC system, building hand built turnouts with help from fast tracks jigs. Putting in Bullfrog throws for easier operation and installing magnets to make everything hands free. So I keep wondering when I will get to the trains. Soon, but the wait will be worth it as everything will run better and more smoothly. I hope you can understand if you are also investing in a layout.
