Thanks for checking it out. The roof shape takes on the space addition of an arch, without the aesthetically pleasing look. But a lot easier and cheaper to build.

Mark, Eddie stays in the 'Work Release facility' at night. I think the loft will have a layout and some old magazines, to match the old guys below. I might have to put an elevator in there to save 'knees'.

Thanks Rich,

I'm being slowed down by the cold and snow. The printer like the room temperature around 70-72. The 'shop' is around 65 when it drops into the 20's outside. So the printing stops until it gets a little warmer. The snow is just a P.I.T.A. to trudge the 150' out to the shop.

That's cold, Jim! COLD!!

I've been mulling that idea over more than I care to admit, though.... The concept may have merit, and IIRC, when we built the house, we had a provision for that contingency in the prints, carefully hidden. Somewhere....

Hmmmmm....

Jim, No more subscription page, but I managed to find one of the lounge back in 2014... Members were celebrating those that were featured in RMC articles'...

Ted,

Holy Smokes! That is one great looking scene, was that in your version of the lounge? O-Scale?

Yes Jim, I had an entire thread I posted and stored in, (My Subscriptions Page) along with all my posted build threads. They were erased... Joe informed me due to problems with the server filling up. 20 years of threads, and an individual annoying him that didn't know what he was doing regarding subscriptions, he emptied it out. Disheartening to say the least. The threads are still in different forums, but locating them is difficult....

Well with a little break in the weather, I was able to fire up the compressor and do a little spraying today. The ugly 'green' filament is nearly gone. Good old gray primer!



I've been trying to decide if everything should be on the main floor, or add a 'loft' which will kill the view of the lounge booths, kitchen, potbelly stove, OR just put everything on that main level.



Yep, it's the start of a 1/7569 scale layout. How 'bout dem apples Z-scalers?




The loft idea will generate some staircase work. A spiral staircase would be awfully hard to do, but a firepole for quick exiting would be neat. Opinions, please.

Jim,

Neat, a scale layout.

I'm partial to a spiral stair case. Have one in the house to the basement. They are great space savers. No wasted space like under a regular staircase. I'll settle for a fire pole for a fast exit, but how about an elevator for the older folks to get up to the loft?

Thanks Philip.

Bernd, I pulled quite a few splinters out my head last night trying to draw a suitable spiral staircase. I finally decided to go with a staircase and maybe an elevator for YOU!

Love the layout idea. Put my vote in for the spiral staircase.

Here is the lounge layout after a little scenery was added.






I like it less and less 'hogging up' that lower level. So here it is 'up' in the loft.




I haven't wired up the feeders or signals yet.
