Speaking of 'stuff'....Baronjutter (one of the many great people I've met through this blogging experience! I've said it before but its worth repeating if you are new to this blog: I highly recommend starting a blog to share your hobby! Or at least connect and share on one of the N forums!) made a brilliant point that demolishing a layout really only means the loss of scenery and benchwork. My benchwork was pretty shoddy and the scenery looks old after a while, so really I've only lost a little bit of track.
Where's all the other stuff? Here it is!
Below is most of the track. For the time being its crudely organized by manufacturer and type (e.g. "Kato curves", etc...) and still needs to be cleaned and better indexed so I know what I've got on hand. Also, some of it might be sold as well!
As you can tell from some of the above comments, part of the process right now is to make room and select what pieces will be a part of the next layout. I already know that a trolley/tram line is out (I love the idea; but I could never get my trams to operate well except at high speed!), large yards and/or lots of switches are out; and a terminal-end passenger station will also be out. Which means this big monster is surplus!
While I know I want to sell it, its so large, its not easy! It basically has three parts: The terminal, the canopy structure, and the platforms. The biggest problem is that the platforms are about 65" (1.65m!) long! Combine that with a station that is 16" wide and about the same tall, and its a nearly impossible structure to shop in one box...more like three! And I just question...with all the hassle of getting this ready to ship, the size of this thing, the cost of shipping....is there any return in it for me to even both selling it? Should I just hang on to it? Maybe just sell it to someone in the local area (Seattle? :-) )
I still have some other stuff to put on eBay, thankfully not quite as problematic as the 'psuedo Berlin' terminal shown above! But this one is sort of 'in the way' at the moment for me mentally. Guess I'll clean track until I figure out what to do!
