My Dad and I have been building a layout for the past 6 months and here's a very short progress report of what has happened. It's in a space of 13'x16', and is based off of a John Armstrong plan "The PRR, Schuylkill Division".

I mean he's building some bench-work. 11/23/06 View attachment 36572 This is the Bench work basics. 12/07/06 View attachment 36573 And finally, let's jump ahead a few months... This is the latest track work I did on Thursday. It's the upper level main yard. 4/12/07 View attachment 36574 As you can see we got a fair amount of stuff done in 6 months, while working sparingly on it. I live 2 hours away from him and work and go to school, so my time is limited. (who's isn't right?).

To see a full progress report on it from the beginning go to (Link deleted-admin) That should tell you the whole story. I also have all my videos on Youtube.com http://youtube.com/watch?v=NKy4TGPMofU Click on the tab to the right of the videos that says "More from this user" to see all my vids. Thanks for looking and will update periodically.
