Back last spring one friday, I uncharacteristically checked my work email before leaving the farm to go to work, and saw that school was closed while they decided what to do about the virus, by the end of the weekend I was off for 6 days. before that was over I was off for a month. before that was over I was off wor the rest of the year. I was planning on retiring over the summer.
As soon as I was done for the spring, and for good, my wife , who was in Houston Texas to care for her folks wanted me to join her. turns out they were going to lock down Houston, so I had to go well in advance of when I planned, without much in the way of tools and projects
I built this silly little station out of toilet paper rolls, take out trays, grocery store meat trays, clear plastic salad boxes, and cardboard from cereal boxes. The wall to the right of the steps was broken in transit, and I have not found the piece, so I'll have to patch this up, but my foam masonry skills have reached another level. I'm posting this in the union station thread, as it is foam masonry, had I used the current techniques, it would look better, and nhave taken much less time.
there is some interior, I had planned in interior stairs and had plotted windows to follow the spiral staircase, that was too difficult to set up , so I went with a ladder instead, and had to fill in the windows, so I tried my hand a carving bricks. without a plan for either of my two next layouts. in retirement I will be spending most of the year in Stewart TN. and winters in Houston Texas. I don't have plans for either layout finalized, but with less usable space in Houston I may do all HOn3 there as almost all my Hon3 locomotives can do 16 inch radiuses.
