Merry Christmas to you Dats.

Santa is going to need 1500 hp these days to pull his sleigh. There are many more kids who each get many more presents than 100 years ago. Funny that you should post your picture of Rudolph as I was proposing to do something similar to my Bachmann ten-wheeler (G gauge), but ran out of time.

Hello everyone.

First post in 2017.
I'm thinking of extending my layout. The extension would be 12" x40". When I attach the portion, my layout is going to be C shape.
I'd like to include at least two industrial sidings and LA version of a creek with concrete walls.  I think it's called "wash".

I'm also thinking of having a road but when I think about doing switching moves, the road might be just a pain to deal with.
Anyway I want to come up with a plan before March.
Hopefully I can show you the benchwork by February.
At the moment, I'm not using any fancy gizmo such as CAD. Using a big sheet of paper.
Following up my reputation of being a caveman of digital age.


Also, I finally bought Atlas GP9 loco on eBay.
I wanted get the loco with SP scheme for several years!
I have to change the engine number for my era so that would be another challenge.



I'll report back to you on the trackplan or something similar.

Looking forward to seeing how your expansion develops, Dats.

And, the GP9 is one of my favourite locos and yours looks good in its SP colours. I'm also a caveman in the digital age. My plan was done with pieces of paper, first small for basic planning and then full size to finalise it all and put down track.
