Thanks guys, for all the nice posts, all appreciated.

Yes Fred, that was what broke the camel's back

No, Not really, it was a bunch of fun.

I'm getting a pretty good response to my offer, a busy time is here.


ocalicreek Posted - 03/24/2019 : 7:41:11 PM

This is a momentous decision, and this discussion in general gives a relatively younger guy like myself (43) a lot to think about. I hope, as we all do (or did) that I have many more productive modeling years ahead...but as many funerals I've done for unexpected deaths, I have learned that there's no telling when the day will come for us to leave this world - and our models - behind.

Thank you for sharing your modeling experience with us and I know I'm not alone in saying I look forward to the next model you build, and the next, and the next!

Terrell Posted - 03/24/2019 : 12:37:58 PM
It's all my fault!! Terrell's Toothpicks was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Those kind of decisions are always hard to make. But it's good to hear you're not giving up modeling.
quartergauger48 Posted - 03/20/2019 : 11:19:47 PM
Bob, I'm feeling a little sad right now' as you have shed much light on the reality of a subject I don't like thinking about'.

I think Pete, sums it up the best'... I also, would love to see a few pics of the layout before you close the line down'...for good'.. As always Bob, I'll be sending my best thoughts of you, your way'.. my friend.
Guff Posted - 03/20/2019 : 11:10:59 AM
I am also sorry that you have to dismantle the LP&N. If the railroad gave you as much pleasure as it did your fans watching you prepare your builds on the forum it was well worth the time and I'm sure it's a beautiful layout to view. I sure would like to see the layout before it's dismantled.
By the way...Have a Happy Birthday next week!
Michael Hohn Posted - 03/20/2019 : 11:08:37 AM
Wow, Bob. Sad but understandable. I remember my father making a similar decision to downsize his collection of ceramics. He succeeded but also started a new, smaller collection as he went in a slightly different direction.

As you say, you won’t be stopping your model-building.

And I second the request for layout photos.

Orionvp17 Posted - 03/20/2019 : 10:10:40 AM

While I am very sorry indeed to see that you have had to make this decision, I understand and applaud the logic behind it. If this railroad has given you as much joy as the chronicles have given us, you may rest easy, knowing that you've improved the lives of many with your humor, craftsmanship, hints, tips and friendship.

So think of this as a step forward, and please continue to enlighten us with your parade of elegant models!

Best wishes.

And Happy Birthday!

Bob, I know that you've been thinking about this decision to close down the LP&N RR from our previous discussions for awhile now.
Still the news is shocking, however I appreciate your concern about not leaving it for someone else to deal with.
I love the fact that your offering the structures that you built to honour other modellers, to those modellers.
What a super nice gesture!
I know that I plan on visiting you soon and hopefully seeing your layout before you start to dismantle it all.
At least we will still have you modelling here with us, and we have all 4 volumes of structures on the LP&N RR to remember some of your great models that you have shared with us over the years.
So best of luck with your endeavors, and I'm looking forward to meeting with you and your layout!

bob, is there any possibility of seeing an overall shot of your layout with all of the wonderful structures on it?
sgtbob Posted - 03/20/2019 : 08:39:37 AM
Bill and Kevin, thanks for posting.

I'm still a little shook up but it had to happen. Now I didn't say I was done with model
building, just that the railroad has to go. I'll be 84 years old next week and I have no one
family wise to take over. The railroad takes up a big chunk of my basement and if I should die I
would be leaving a really big problem for someone to get rid of it.

All things must come to an end.

kebmo Posted - 03/20/2019 : 08:18:21 AM
wow on the building, whoa on the announcement.
Bill Gill Posted - 03/20/2019 : 08:13:24 AM

Bob, words fail to convey the feeling after reading your announcement.
sgtbob Posted - 03/20/2019 : 04:45:45 AM
Thanks Guys, much appreciated.

I have an announcement to make today. been thinking about this for a while.

potsy Posted - 03/14/2019 : 6:17:49 PM
Bob nothing else can be said to make your build any better !!

quartergauger48 Posted - 03/14/2019 : 5:03:03 PM

All thumbs up Bob'.. One can see the beautiful machined interior in the natural lighted shots of Terrell's. Both 'flawless' builds from the great MASTER'...
