Condo/Loft Layout: Progress/inaugural run


My continuing blog about building an 'affordable' small switching layout in the living room/dining room/kitchen, ie little real estate for a Model Railroad. ;)

Benchwork is sorted with foam core and cork roadbed, Fascia and everything painted to match and now some of the track work laid. I haven't purchased my DCC system yet, looking at the NCE PowerPro and my first DCC locomotive, the expense being directed to trackwork, mainly turnouts. But I had my first DC run. Here's a few pictures... not the best quality, but pictorial progress in action. :)

I am ready for the October issue


I have finished reading the September issue. I am ready for the October issue.

I can't believe it is not out yet.

Joe is probably wasting time sleeping, eating, spending time with family, and working on his layout.

Safety First on the Trenton Subdivision in N Scale


All railroads strive to reduce accidents and injuries, so reflecting this mandate on my layout is an opportunity to create a small diorama within the layout.

The club blog


I decided to start a blog on the events that take place at our model railroad club. Instead of just being a look at what we did or what event we are hosting etc type of posting I thought I would do something different. Some info on those types of things may enter in to the blog but I thought the focus would be on the camaraderie of the membership. I would also post some of the humorous things that happen when a bunch of grown men are playing with trains, doing maintenance and making improvements to our building.

Back Issues


I've been doing some computer clean out and updating.

I needed to rebuild my collection of MRH magazines. So, I've been downloading them for the same price that they cost when they were first issued (free).

Looking at the business model of other magazines, I think Joe should charge at least double what they were.

Oh, wait a minute, that's still free.

Thanks, Joe.
