    I can remember pin setters in some of the lanes when I was growing up. couple of years ago, th emanager of our lanes was in a panic during city tournament when the confuser on a couple of lanes took a dump. He called my and asked if I could come in and score. Nobody knew how to do it the old fashion way with a pencil and score sheet.

    Looking great there Colonel. Still can't believe you switched to HO, but layout looks awesome.

    Modeling a bowling alley in HO takes up too much room. It's an N thing

    I can't imagine that a bowling alley would take up more room than your excellent theater. Though your developer might have to offer the razing of some existing structures that have long since outlived their usefulness. Of course the town's administrative council would have to approve such action with support from the planning commission.

    Though for me, I would love to see your interpretation of a classic 1950's era bowling alley. Of course it would need to have a removable roof displaying your intricate attention to detail.

    Go ahead its not that large, length of an alley is 80', then 10' in back for the pit, and 20' in front for the concourse, 110' depth of building.

    The alley in which I bowled in the early 50s had only four lanes....small town, doncha know. At any rate, that might be an easier challenge.

    If you decide to skip the interior, it would be possible to put it towards the rear and need to do only a portion (either a flat facade or just a portion of the overall depth)

    I want to see what building I can find before I decide on how many lanes. But I will keep it under control :LOL:
