Hi Bob!

Thanks for asking.

I'm saving up my hobby funds for my next major purchase: A second complete NCE R/C DCC system. Amid that, I've also got to spend some of my hobby funds for some motorcycle upkeep things (about $200-$300 worth) in advance of riding season that's only a few weeks away.

SO... I'm avoiding my model railroad train hobby for now so as not to be tempted to spend on items that will prolong the saving mode.

Typically, I use my V scale interest to piddle with as I await for such funds/etc. That said, I'm in the process of putting in the last few miles of track to replicate the St. Louis & North Arkansas railroad as it was from about 1903 to mid-1906. (The StL&MA morphed into the Missouri & North Arkansas when it started their final expansions in 1906.) SO, as per the prototype, "my" virtual St.L&NA/M&NA runs from Seligman, MO, to Leslie, AR, some 121 miles or so. I used track charts and all the data I could get my hands on to make this as accurate as reasonably practical. I also intend to share this route project with those interested among my V scale friends.

So, there you have it!

Andre

Understand the need for mature fiscal management. I played with track plans and CAD drawing in such times. But, basic scenery (paper towel, plaster of Paris over a lactic of cardboard strips) was cheap too. A lot cheaper than foam That's for sure and with a cheap drop cloth, a lot easier to clean up.

A little care on the fiscal side also helps prevent expensive mistakes, extravagances and unthought out purchases.
