    Removed and painted the fascia black today--looks so much better!

    Also got a couple new boxcars in the mail this week. These are Trainworx reworked Fox Valley 5283 DD Boxes. The waffle peieces are individually installed.

    Been a while since I posted photos here... Long story short, the SPS is in its new home in North Dakota.

    Love the multiple seasons! No boring same old-same old there. Have wanted to do some winter......so what is the snow? And how do you keep it clean?

    OK, I got excited....asked a silly question and then went back and reviewed the thread and found the answer. Duh.

    Thanks Hemi! It looks great!

    Moving a layout has got to be one of the most daunting parts of relocating. I'd like to know more about how that all worked out.
    Glad to know the SPS lives on!

    As you can see, I built a custom crate for shipment. I built the basic layout in 2009, shipped it to Germany, and 5 years later, shipped it to North Dakota in the same crate. It was well protected and secured.

    Here's hoping the layout continues to survive well. Do you get your own shipping container as well, for all household goods?

    In a way, yes. The movers box everything up, and load it in large crates. At least overseas to CONUS.

    I was just wondering the other day when you were due state side again, welcome back. Glad to see the layout made it okay. Now to entice you to come to Galesburg at least once before I move.
