My true love in model railroading is realistic scenery. I've been into my layout for 5-6 years, and no matter how close I think I am to starting scenery I never get there. There's always a problem turnout, a bad section of track, or maybe time/humidity/temperature revealing some other problem that needs fixed first. Most times just plain ol' burnout sets in, and I do a structure. I successfully installed a tsunami decoder into my Doodlebug. I even built my static grass applicator about a year ago but have only done tests with it. Currently I've replaced my Atlas code 100 turnouts with more-realistic Proto:87 detailed code 70 turnouts, but that now involves making sure my throw and switch stands all work correctly (they didn't before), with the wiring for the future panel and/or dwarf lights all done too.
Just wondering- does anyone have a finished layout out there?? Clubs don't count- you got man-power, I got just my own two hands.
