    Just stopped in and was wondering if anyone here has ever thought of
    building the Bailey yard in North Platte.
    I am going to do the calculations tonight for fun and I bet it would take
    at least a 4 car garage.
    Sorry for the interuption, I'm just floating around tonight.

    See Ya,

    I am verry much a start and stop person. I walk by my layout every day and haven't lifted a fingers to work on it for at least 3 months. I have 90% of the track laid with a couple of siding and the area where I hope will someday sit a turntable, which I can't afford at this point :cry: :cry:

    I need to make some decisions about scenicing the thing as well, but now have some ideas about how I want to do it, it is just a matter of getting started again. Summertime isn't good railroading time for me as much of the summer we have grandkids visiting or we are off visiting them and their partents.:D :D

    I enjoy it too much not to get cranked up again soon:thumb:

    I sort of was addicted when I started to build my first layout. Then we moved and it took me a long time to get started again and I got this far and have sort of put it on the back burner for right now. I'll get after it again because I can't stand having it sitting there partly completed :curse:

    If I lived in your part of the world right now I'd be more interested in knowing how the walleyes were biting :) :)
