  • Wow, I guess it's been longer than I thought since I'd last been on here. Sorry about that. I was without a computer for a while and then just been busy at work. Progress was slow over the winter. The bench work is all up, but then I spent a lot of time drawing layouts. With limited room and experience, I want to keep it really simple, a small yard, a siding, a little town, and a few industries. I'm finally to the point of laying down the yard and putting down track bed for the mainline. I try to get a little something done each week now, but there's always other things going on and work to contend with. hope all is going well on the MM&WRR! I'll be better about getting on here on a regular basis. Take care!
    IAinterState, Just wondering how your layout is coming. It's getting close to winter and about time for me to actually get in the basement and work on the Marquette, Monona and Western (MM&WRR). Plus, I'll be retiring from the National Guard this January, freeing up a little more time on weekends. I've been dragging my feet but am anxious to try some scenery soon. Regards.
    IAinterState, I assume you're modeling that railroad. I live in Iowa too. It's a good railroad and I used to live near it in Altoona, IA. Now I'm in Runnells and I'm modeling a portion of the old Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul up in Clayton County, Iowa, running through Marquette and Monona, Iowa. I'd be glad to hear from you. JimmyG
