My layout is 70% done. Which in my world means...TEAR IT DOWN! Ha! It's a 8'X10' N scale branch of the B&LE based on the prototype in the 70's. It's point to point with a continuous loop, but then it happens...I get the 2004 Great Model RR magazine, and I want to change my WHOLE layout. What keeps you guys from tearing it down so quickly, and how do you justify spending $$$$$ on glue, scenery, plaster, paint, etc, only to start over? Would Picasso or Da Vinci paint for the fun of painting, only to crumble up his paintings when he was done? I have the room to make an 10' x 11' U-shaped (no duckunders) layout. I would elevate the outer side but I'm afraid it would still look like trains pass through same scene twice, which I'm not a fan of...Your thoughts? P.S. sorry, I'm rambling today.
