Must do better!!
There has been some activity since my last post in June.. the Freemo rebuild is pretty much complete for now and a few of us had an informal get-together to play trains again.. big Freemo meet is due 24 September.
Big news though.. Brett has been put away and I've made a start on the replacement, using all 13 feet of the wall, plus a 90 degree stretch for a potential 'fiddle'.
It will be American HO again, and using my Yellow Pine Railroad. Primarily switching, although I haven't settled on a plan, I know that I will be resisting the urge to fill the new space with track, and will be keeping it simple and plain.. hopefully focus on the overall scene. I am drawn toward Lance Mindheim's approach in this regard.
It may seem a little 'cart before the horse' but as well as deciding on the space before the trackplan, I have already named this project.. "Greenville"
Anyway.. it feels like a bit of a cheat, but the first two entries in the Greenville Diaries can be seen here..
