Well, for those of you who feel like you are not making enough progress on your layout... you are not alone.
This April marks the 20th anniversary of layout construction here. Family comes first, but I sure enjoy this hobby. I
told my wife way back when, that I would be done with the layout by 2016,
and it is apparent there is still a lot of work ahead. A conventional
single level linear layout would have been my first choice for ease of
construction and walk-around design, but I am grateful to have been able
to cram this multi-deck spaghetti bowl into our garage at all. For the
most part it still retains mostly walk-around design features (with a few
hiccups), but its configuration has swallowed significant labor hours as
opposed to a more traditional linear design. Adding the peninsula to the layout was not part of the original plan (started back in 2011), so I tell myself I would still be on schedule otherwise (lol). At least now things are
finally moving more to the scenery stages, so I am glad to have put the saws and
drills away for the most part. Slow but steady progress has been, and still remains the
Looking forward to sharing my progress as a layout host for SoCalOps 2016 in June.
