    Over the past few years, I have built an HO-Scale, ~18 x ~18 ft sectional layout that is stowable/portable. It currently fits in a two-car garage space. The plan is based on the area in SE Kansas near the intersection of the Frisco's Afton and Parsons Sub-Divisions. It includes a branch line to the town of Weir City Kansas. It is set in the ~1920s, near the peak of activity on the Weir-Pittsburg Coal Field.

    I will make a few posts on the current status and provide periodic updates....

    Wow! Nicely done, well designed and scenicked, and it looks like a blast to operate as well.
