This week the missus and I close on a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home here in Muskogee. It has a 2-car garage attached, and the local Bureau of Land Management (read: the missus) has given me half the garage for a layout. As long as she can park her car inside, she's OK with it. This will give me a 20 foot by 10 1/2 foot space to build a new HO scale mdoel railroad. That is, after I demolish a poorly planned room built by the previous owner, and finish necessary remodeling work inside the house required before we move in...... I'm still wanting to model part of the Afton Subdivision, circa mid-1970s, with both Afton & Ft. Scott represented by staging. The main cities I want to model would be Miami, Baxter Springs, and Columbus. This would allow me to have the switch jobs that operated, as well as the four daily road freights and occasional KC-Tulsa yard drags. At the least, I'd like to have Miami and Baxter on my layout. I'm open to suggestions.............and as soon as I get a room footprint drawn, I'll post it here.
