walls are up in the basement and they are nearly done.
Due to a fairly recent move, I
had to completely disassemble my layout. I did, however,
save all the hard work by saving all the structures and a
lot of scenery. I will be building a nwe - bigger -
better layout at our new house but it will be at least
late summer 2005 before I get it going. Actually, I never
was really satisfied with how traffic flowed on the old
layout and I'm studying it more before I start the new

I am a retired US Air Force Communications / Computer / Electronics Engineer but still work part time and run my web site, The Woodcrafter Page at www.TheWoodcrafter.net. Work on the layout has been very slow as I stay very busy around my home where I live with my wonderful wife and youngest son (10 years old). This is, after all, a hobby and just for fun.
To date, I am
still playing around with track design. The layout should
mostly fill a room about 16' x 20' in a 'J' shaped bench.
Some of the features I am planning to definately include
are Barboursville, WV, Huntington, WV, Rancocas Creek,
NJ, Cass RR, WV, and Moorestown, NJ.
I will keep posting pictures of the progress here as I proceed so keep checking back. I've also posted some pictures of the layout in Las Vegas and of the module I constructed while a member of the Warner Robins, GA Modular Railroad Club as well as some really good shots my father took of a Berkshire running through Huntington, WV.
Do you hate
seeing those ugly switch mechanisms on your layout? I
have developed a quite reliable, yet pretty simple, way
to take those nasty looking old Atlas (or similar) switch
