And In A Diffeerent Vein
Thw weekend was the annual Model Railway Show for the public. Normally I demonstrate scenery making but this year the venue was a soccer facility - a single building holding 4 indoor soccer pitches, on carpet of course. They didn't seem to think that my messing with plaster, paint and water was all that good an idea.
Anyway last night I visited my friend Neil McKay's layout, to photograph it for possible publication. There is no real estate available anywhere in his basement - all full of layout and scenery and buildings. Already a huge steel mill sits on a second level. Neil and Dauna are busy building a model of the Milwaukee Station and where he thinks he's going to put it I have no idea. Unlike most modellers who never seem to get round to finishing their layout, Neil and Dauna have done a great job getting their layout looking very nice.
