    Well, I guess another way to look at it is: logging lines didn't stay in one area for a really long time. When the trees were all cut down, they had to pick up and move on to somewhere else. Of course, they used all the same sized engines, structures and rolling stock at their new location... :)

    As much as I hate to see the old one go (AGAIN), I look forward to seeing the new one!

    Let's see, at this rate it will be On30 this year, and then next year at this time do we expect to see you tear out the On30 and move on to large scale?

    I couldn't agree more ! Oh, BTW you're going to have to change your "member status" now, there's a new On30 "Newbie" in the conspiracy. :D :D

    Ahem,

    Ah, Shamus, ya know the next logical step up from On30 is to give up the narrow track and go to "S". also, the 1:64 scale is a nice compromise between that "Big" "O" scale and that "little" HO stuff. Not too big, not too small.....

    And the baby bear said, "This is juus"S"t RIGHT!"

    The commercial moment is over....

    Shamus, i cannot BELIEVE, how often you take your layout down and redo it! Are you Hindu? Looking forward to seeing your progress. Know i'll learn more neat stuff.

    The Red Fox is dead, long live the Red Fox!

    Regards,
    Ted (the lone "s" gauger)

    Paul, do I see another CD book in the making, only on On30? I too look forward to watching the new layout develop before our eyes here on the "The Gauge."

    Ted, you ain't the only S gauger here.

    Hello!

    I feel quite sorry as seeing the Red Fox being brought down, :( but I am very much excited at following this new layout being build. ;)

    I consider the work you have done on Badger Creek and Red Fox as very artistic and outstanding!

    I am planning to build my first layout later this year, and I was wondering about how you take design decisions as you develop your new project?

    Thanks,
    Jean


    1. How do you decide of the design of your new layout? (e.g. structure, lenght, rail mapping, road, brigdes, etc.)

    Is it simply based on the previous one (e.g. Red Fox extended to On30), or you create something completely new based on your experience?

    Do you try to innovate when you create a new layout? (e.g. trying something new you have never done before, or stay with proven methods)


    2. How much of your previous work in HO can you reuse in On30?

    Can you reuse locomotives, carts, scratch buildings, trees, directly or by adapting them?


    3. What will you use to drive it? DC or DCC, and why?
