Well I finally took the plunge and began tearing down my layout. I started by removing all of the various and sundry vehicles, lots and lots of vehicles. Yeee Gods I had no idea just how many of those things I had until I started to remove them. Just the GHQ and Period Miniatures seemed to take forever . . . and then there were the Classic Metal Works. Don't get me started on the Classic Metal Works. Along the way I began removing some of the structures and details, mostly so I could gain access to; wait for it YET MORE VEHICLES!!! I've been using a mix of Isopropyl alcohol and water to dissolve my liver . . . no wait, that's the other alcohol mix, the Isopropyl is for dissolving the glue holding much of this stuff to the layout and after a couple of hours work I can safely say that there's a good chance I'll die of old age befor . . . let's not dwell on the negative here. But seriously folks, this is going to take a while as I have a tendency to breakdown and cry as I watch 15+ years of work being slowly and painfully reduced to a collection of "Model Railroad Stuff". I can't wait for the point I take a circular saw to the benchwork so as to cut it into small enough bits to fit in the dumpster.
