    Hello, I am considering purchasing an O ga layout that will need to be moved 600 miles. Has anyone had experience with moving layouts and can provide a recommendation for moving companies to contact to move layouts? I went to a big name mover to request an estimate and the smallest lbs they would consider quoting on was 2500 lbs, about 5 times more than the train table and accessories to accompany weigh.

    (Wife says no way to a (fly/drive a uhaul back) road trip now)

    This sounds like a very tough question to answer. Is there a time limit, within which you must make the move? It really sounds like a road trip could be best. That way you control the safety of the handling and packing- which would be my biggest concern.

    No, just a couple coins burning a hole in my pocket. Agree on the safety of the move, Wouldn't want another Delta Lines disaster!
