  • The CP Rail M -and- M Sub. lifts its skirt

    The CP Rail Manitoba and Minnesota Subdivision lifts its skirt to show what's underneath--storage!

    A post by Jason Shron of Rapido Trains on some forums last week ("What a wife thinks about our hobby") got me thinking about the subject of compromise--specifically, how we work with our families to obtain the space we need for our layouts.

    You can find my thoughts, and photos--including photos of how my brother-in-law built one of this city's largest layouts while still allowing the family to use all of the basement--on my blog at

    (See photo below for how my brother-in-law's layout went through his son's bedroom.)

    Very interesting shots, John. My wife and me have agreed on such a shared space in a room of our basement. The four lower feet are for her, and the four upper for me.

    I agree about this bedroom being a child dream.
