Great lesson from Pierre but please, can he tell us why he dismantled  his fabulous  Wabash layout?

... for an even more fabulous SP layout!

Hi Dean:

If you haven't done so already, check out Pierre's blog... https://elgincarshops.blogspot.com ... where he is documenting the changes and the progress on his new adventure.

As he wrote back in March (https://elgincarshops.blogspot.com/2018/03/mogul-races-in-st-thomas-yard...), he realized the Wabash layout would not come to life in the manner he had hoped.

Cheers!

Hi Trevor, are you still working on a home layout?  early on years ago you were sharing video of your model. Would love to see an update on your layout as well as some of your scenery techniques etc...Do you have a link to any photos of your work?

Hi back: Thanks for the interest in what I'm doing. Yes, I'm still working on a home layout. I maintain a blog about it, which you can find here:
