We moved into our new home on August 22nd. After a little more than 2 months of drywalling, painting and carpeting, the WPRR is back in operation.

Congrats on your new home Jeff! Are you going to change the layout at all? Or is it not quite done yet???

You're not going to run those little BUMBLE_BEE geeps are you. By the way, it's spelled





Oh yeah, Congrats on getting up and running.

Nice work. I saved a few pieces of my old layout too, and migrated them to a new home in a garage. Only difference is, my walls aren't clean and painted like yours - they are covered with cluttered shelves.

But I'll happily take what I can get...! :D

That was the entirety of my previous layout - it came over completely intact, thanks to a friend and a couple relatives who hope that it will last a very long time in it's new location, never to be moved again. Especially never to be moved from a second floor apartment with a tight turn out the door onto the stairs again.

And it will expand off both ends, starting in January. I've been forbidden from spending anything more on the layout until after Christmas.

I'm personally hoping fo a Home Depot Christmas this year...

And yes, as soon as I unpack them, a bumblebee GP38 and a silver and black GP40 will be joining that BN loco on the tracks.

And a bumblebee MP15DC as soon as Atlas ships them...

I've got an unpainted GP-35 that will become BP 305--but that one is purple and orange and says Allegany Railroad on the side. B&P doesn't have a MP15DC.

Notice #2000 to the left.

The W&P doesn't have an MP15DC either, but it does have an SW-1200/1500 (#41) from the I&W. I figure that with the ongoing motive power shortage, the G&W can be convinced to cough up #45 and ship it this way.

I've seen at least one Allegheny RR GP40 wandering out here in the past, but I don't believe it's on the property anymore. Either that or it got repainted. They've just started repainting the StL&A GP40s into PNWR.
