On the road . . .

I'm off to the NMRA MER Convention in Cary, NC today. I'll be there through the weekend. Hope to see some of you there! I'm bringing along my drawing tools and graph paper and plan to spend some quiet time this weekend working on (finally) drawing a trackplan . . . we'll see how that goes!


  1. Hi Marty,

    Were you building then drawing or are you starting over? I built my last layout first before ever really trying to put it down on paper to display in the SIG room at one of the conventions. I had just put down tracks as close as I could to the actual track schematics I had on hand from the L&HR. It worked out good, and I'm sure it was a little easier to fit everything being that I was working in N-Scale at the time.

    The present layout I'm building is the first one I ever put a plan together for before I started building.

  2. I'm drawing the track plan - showing the layout as built. The peninsula track is pretty much completed (there's a couple of spurs waiting for structures) - but the two areas of the layout remain to be designed. I also worked up some ideas for those.
