We all know he is!! I think he's starting to practice for when he retires and builds his empire!!!!

Carl, thanks for looking in and appreciate the tip.

Larry and Philip, thanks for the nice comments.
Much appreciated and Philip, thanks for the award. .

Jerry, I don't think there will ever be an empire.
Something small maybe.

I started a new micro layout yesterday to take to my small place at the beach. It will give me stuff to do when the weather in not great. It is a 18x24 cork board with wall mounting slots on the back. I will be able to store it in a closet, on a wall and pull it out when I want to work on it or run it. I plan to have a beach theme as well. Had a glass of red to toast the start of the layout.
FYI - Track is hand built ON30 6Ē radius.

6" radius - that's tight! Looks good.

I see you're also adding to your cork collection.

Looks like fun. The radius might be tight but your rail-truck seems able to handle it just fine.

Now that's what I call an inspiration. I've sort of lost interest the last couple of months. This gives me an idea to try when we will be at camp next year. The wife plans on retiring come the new year and staying at the summer home (camp) as much as possible. So on those days it rains this would give me something to do besides spend all day on the computer. Now I need to decide whether it'll be HOn3 or HOn30. Great idea BigLars.

Nice.

Thanks all. Day two progress.
Early today Gary Beatty sent me a drawing of a bar we discussed on line last night. I happened to have the start of it from a failed project years ago. He did not know I had it.
The other starts of structures are kits that were missing parts from collections I purchased. Trying to use up stuff I would not use on the WW1 layout for this build.

I'll drink to that! Looks like a lot of fun. Reminds me of growing up near Seaside,NJ. They had a small kiddie train at Funtown Pier.
