    I think I read this one a thread here but couldn't find it. It was talking about order from thinking to having finished a layout (or as finished as you can get. LOL) Can anyone point me to the right post or have your own suggestion?
    Thanks,
    Stan

    Don't know about a thread, but here's how I do it. This assumes that the layout room is already prepared.
    1.Plan
    2.Benchwork
    3.Backdrop
    4.Roadbed
    5.Track/wiring
    6.Test with train
    7.Weather track
    8.Run train
    9.Ballast
    10.Run train
    11.Buildings/lighting
    12.Roads
    13.Landscape/scenery
    14.Run train
    15.People/vehicles
    16.Details
    17.Run train
    Numbers 11-13 can be done in a different order depending on your mood. Hope I haven't left anything out.
