We start designing the Dixie Central II on Jan 1, 2011. The three zero's up in the title will be used to count the days. I've GOT to finish my remaining NMRA Achievement Program certificates before the National Convention in 2013 so that I can get my MMR at the convention with my friends there to throw things at me.
Right now the room is in reasonable order except for the old layout stacked in a corner. Hopefully I'll get a bite on it soon.
I'm already going through plans and ideas for the small basement area which is just slightly bigger than a bedroom. While cleaning it up I ran across Model Railroader April 2001 which has one of my all time favorite layouts in it...The Georgia Southern by Steve Flanigan. On page 48 (see, if you had the DVD set you could go look it up right now!) he demonstrates what I think is one of the finest small layouts ever built. It has a great blend of scenery, realism and operations that just can't be beat. I'll read the article again tonight.
So Jan 1 we get started! Maybe we'll finish this one!
