    Roadside America Inc?

    If it wasn't a decent drive I wouldn't be worried. [Well, I'm not really worried anyway]. Sounds good though, I'll have to make it a point to head out that way.

    Roadside America Inc?

    Has anyone ever been there? My gf mentioned it was near her grandfather's house. I can't really tell if the emphasis is on trains or not so I was wondering if anyone had any idea. http://www.roadsideamericainc.com/ I really don't care to go if the emphasis is not on the trains. :cool:

    "What are you working on?" Thread

    I can be a sucker for impulse buys some times! I tend to get side tracked unless I have a specific list. Especially with something as large as this... I don't have the time or money right now really. But anyway, I agree... working "smart" in an organized manner will be quite benefitial in...

    "What are you working on?" Thread

    I have nothing exciting going on really. I'm still ironing out a plan for my reconstruction. Getting a list of things I have that need to be repainted, things that I'd like to acquire some day, etc.

    Newb saying Hi [and pics of my layout]

    I still don't understand... you mean redo the one that is there? For that, I'm not going to go too nuts. I"ll have my girlfriend paint a background to put back there, but that's about it. You can't really get close to there anyway. I did not know of that. I'll have to keep an eye and ear...

    Newb saying Hi [and pics of my layout]

    I shouldn't say she's interested in modelling, so much as she seems interested in my layout and is bummed that she hasn't seen it run yet [the track *needs* to be scrubbed]. In addition to her, I have a little cousin who is always bummed out because the train is never working. I guess both of...

    I'm open to all suggestions. Every suggestion will at least get my brain thinking about something different that I hadn't thought of!

    Kennedy, I like the idea of putting the rolling stock storage in another room. I never thought of it... but that makes so much sense! Which wall? The brown painted wood to the right of the layout in the first pic is the rise right now... I had no intentions of changing that right now...

    Custom-Painted Locomotives

    Do you have a part number or model number or something for the labels? I did a quick scan of Staples.com and couldn't seem to find something that would work. Thanks.

    I'll try to resize them later tonight... Well, it's winter time and I have no garage, so I can't work on the car :) I'm not sure what else. I think the fact that I have an awesome girlfriend who is interested in model trains as well may have helped. I kinda got an itch, and began looking...

    If the pics are too big let me know, I'm on my second computer, which only runs 800x600 so I've lost all perspective.

    Hey, I stumbled across this site while looking for info as I revamp my layout. I've had the set since I was about 6 - so about 15 years. Anyway, on to the pics! The basic layout, where most of the action is: The original engine I got with the original trainset a while back. The...
