I had missed your rotating steps, Tim. It's certainly a great addition.

Tim,
I've so impressed with your empire. I can only image what it's cost you to build such a beautiful empire. It's like a work of art with so much going on. I can't even think of what it's cost for track alone. Thanks for taking the time to share with us and keep up the great work. To have so much built and going in at the same time. Do you have help building the empire?

Money and model railroading should never be discussed in the same breath. Who knows how and when it will come back to haunt us.

Frederic, The steps work really well and are lifted up and down with one foot. There is a thread somewhere on the building of these steps, I just can't locate it. My inspiration came one day while I was listening to the sermon in church and looking down at the kneelers. Perhaps I was not listening that close.


Dave, Peter is right, we try not to talk money.... However I have been at this layout for almost 20 years, this is the 3rd interation. When I started it was pretty well a one man show, but over the years a work crew has emerged and now come out every Tuesday night to help. I would of never built such a layout if it wasn't for the support and help of others. For me the hobby is a large part of our lives with family, and friends. It's also been a great stress reliever over the years as well.
I am glad you like it and I hope that the best is still yet to come.

I understand how we don't talk about the money aspect of the hobby but when I see such fine detail work all over and track going on and on I can't help but bring it up as I'm impressed at what fine work has been done and what a great empire has been built. I'm not talking just hobby items as well as wall-to-wall carpet - wow nice job guys. Maybe one day I'll et room for an empire and if I do I'll not want to talk about hte money ;-)
Thanks for opening your doors to us all. You should be proud of what you've done.
Dave

Tim, good to hear from you.
It's been too long, you must be very busy with work and other 1:1 stuff.
As always, I look forward to seeing pics of your layout.

Hi Rick,

The 1:1 stuff is taking up my time more than I want it to. You have to do what you have to do.

Haven't had much time on the forum but it is great to see it going strong.

Tim,
Good to read your posts again.
I was about to send you a PM/e-mail to see why you had not been around for a while.

Hey Tim! Glad to see this wonderful thread, and you resurface! I can't wait to see what you've been up to. I'm sure your version of 'some progress' will impress many.

Hi Mike,

WOW you are right, it has been 6 months. I have taken some time off this summer. I have been making progress lately though but am lazy about taking photos and writing. One of these days I will kick back in and start posting more.

How are things going in Michigan, if I recall you took on a new teaching job?
