- The ICNW - Illinois Central / Chicago & Northwestern urban switching layout in HO scale
- a Rebuild of the ICNW in a smaller shelf built layout in HO scale
- The MC Junction layout (a fictional shortline railroad in Meredosia, IL) in HO scale (never got very far)
- The Rock Island: Illinois Division in N Scale. This was the first fully successful layout.
So, not too bad considering I'm nearly 40.
She responds what about the layout in your parents garage? oh....
Well, I need to confess something about that layout.
. Well, the layout in my parents garage must have been changed / rebuilt 20 times (maybe not that many, but at least 10+ times). Of course, I would chock that up to my inexperience and experimentation of the hobby. Funny thing, I had a Tyco Rock Island locomotive back then too. I just remembered that.
My wife just smiles. I still proclaim that I'm on a quest to model the ROCK prototypically.
Corporate deliberations are still continuing over the fate of v.1.0. Maybe CNN will setup camp in the front yard providing live updates of the events. LOL!
While the corporate psychologist was previewing tonight's blog post, she stated there have been numerous revisions to the four layouts I have constructed in the past. The ROCK has had many additions or major changes as well!
My response....."ohhhhhh.....I wasn't counting revisions.....that's a whole nother story." LOL!
Sounds like this is going to be tough debate. I cast my vote for the ROCK v.2.0!!
