    Now this project is way too large for me to post here. It is one years worth of work at the club. So if you like watching a build from the start here it is.

    I know I posted some of this stuff here before but cannot find it.

    25 people have looked as I can see in the stats. Maybe some comments ?

    Looks cool. I was surprised to see that you are using that scale indoors. :)

    What an awesome undertaking. How many people are involved overall? Do you feel there are any areas of expertise over/under-represented? Only a club (or someone with a LOT of friends) could succeed at this scale [pun intended] of enterprise.

    There are around 30 members and we have about 25 active. Each of us has a unique interest be it modeling, operations, scenery, wood working, electronics. When we tackle a project it is together and we all learn from each other. Sure there are disagreements but we are men and that happens.

    It is a an honor to be apart of my club and I treasure my time with the guys.

    That is one hugelynormous layout.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Thanks for sharing.

    I particularly like the tip about testing before adding scenery -
    although in my experience, a high-speed derail tends to assist in problem-solving by moving much of the scenery out of the way.sign1

    btw: what scale is it? :rolleyes:

    HO scale, and yes it is big. Havent tried the plow technique at the club. My Son did yesterday on his (my old) layout.

    Seattle, eh?

    That's a bit of a hike to visit the WMRC club mentioned. You'd be closer if you lived in Florida!

    You know what i mean, how does the saying go ?

    many hands make light work of a huge layout ... Find a club close to you, this is possible anywhere in the world.
