    Hi All,

    I just found this forum and can't believe all the great info and layouts everyone has. I started on a layout in my basement, but have stopped working on it due to the fact that a move may be in the works in the near future.

    Here's a link to some pics...

    I've started some 3' x 1.5' dominoes that will latch together... This will keep me busy and I'll be able to take them with me without resorting to the SAW. Here's some good advice: THINK AHEAD!!

    I'll get some photos up soon... Looking forward to sharing my progress!

    A nice looking layout Mickey. I know what moving around is like and have had more layouts torndown then re-built but finally had to retire to get a stable location. Are you hand laying track like the turnout you are showing?
    I see this is your first post so here is a big welcome to the Gauge.

    Thanks all for the welcome, and the nice comments!
    I've scratch built about 12 turnouts with good success but the track is all atlas code 55.

    Hello Mikey, welcome to The Gauge.

    I hear you about moving, I am currently renting an apartment. I have started an 11x6 layout and am building it in 4 setions so I can be moved.
