After some forty years of “arm chair quarter-backing I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and join the rest of you operators out there. Much of this is due to wifey’s begging, cajoling, arm twisting etc. The bad part…..condo livin’ ain’t the most spacious thing to work with. Room allotted ... was an 8.5' X 12' spare bedroom that serves other multi-purpose functions! Space allotted .... was a miserly 31" X 144" (yep...that equates to approximately 34 square feet folks . Spent many hours trying to devise a workable plan that included my wish-list. First up was continuous running so I could run a 20 - 25 string of what-ever ... behind a couple of heavy pullers and not be chasing it's tail. Next was a sizable yard to park what I've been collecting over those years. Also I wanted to be able to work off the main while watching those horses chug by. Throw in a few industrial sites to keep me busy....and that's about it. An added bonus is 2 reverse tracks for turning things around. The good part....bench-work is complete (incuding back-drop) and am at the track laying stage. I’m hoping that a few comments from any of you out there would be helpful. Attached is "THE PLAN" as I visualised it. But....West Virginia (the local) and Saskatchewan....are a few miles apart....so comment away ! Best I can do is a pic of the plan….tried playing with those CAD thingies with very little success ….aiyaa…..the joys of getting old and “un-trainable” !
