    During my down time on the Boston Mountains Sub Division layout I'm going to draw plans for a DCC HO layout that will be on top of the overhead valence. It will be U shaped 16 inches wide and about 28 feet long with a turntable on one end and Wye on other.

    Thank you Chris for finding the track schematics, Karl for your dad's drawings and Keith for the floor plans.

    A friend on Trainboard 3D printed the dome and arches below yesterday evening. They look fantastic and will be used when I scratch build the Ft. Scott Depot at a later date. Need to purchase some HO brick styrene from Top Shelf Hobbies in Owasso so I can get started on the depot.

    I received the dome and arches for the Ft. Scott Depot from Sumner today, they look perfect. After I purchase some brick styrene will start scratch building early next week.

    The guy you want is Sumner on Trainboard. I will send him a PM with your request and name. Do you have a Trainboard build thread for your layout?

    Thanks Joe. Yes, there is a Crawford and Cherokee thread on Trainboard. I have the same username there.

    Bob, Sorry to say Sumner said he can't do the 3D print at this time, maybe later. His priority is to install track on his N scale layout.

    When I visited the Green Country Model Railroaders Association yesterday morning Dale Baker gave me four buildings, grain bin, tank farm and a 13 inch motorized turntable for my up coming HO layout.

    Thank you very much Dale!!!

    I went to Top Shelf Hobbies this afternoon to purchase some brick styrene but it was out of stock so the owner, Royal ordered one and should get it in about a week. In the meantime I'm currently drawing the track plan for the layout on graph paper since my laptop isn't working right at this time. It's a little more time consuming but there's no big hurry to get it done.

    Cynthia and I have been looking for a new apartment and having trouble finding one with a large enough bedroom for the N scale layout. Our apartment here in Broken Arrow is 900 square feet and the layout bedroom is 11x10. We are more or less camping out here, we have two recliners, TV, bed, few clothes and some kitchen stuff. The rest is in storage.
