    Thanks for the reply. Here's where I am with size. In an earlier post I had replied to a fellow asking about room size. I answered that I had a 30' X 30' room purposely built for me. What I failed to...

    Ah...I just re-read that, please folks don't take it too seriously, I'm kidding, of course. I'm not a weirdo, really.

    Chicago

    Have you ever considered adoption? I need a Father that you fit the shoes of. As an orphaned child, I was 4 the last time I ever saw my Dad. So with your insight, and my...

    You know that is not too far from the truth. I have never built a layout, and I do know all about the build/frustration cycle. I have been an armchair modeler for over 20 years. My image of my first...

    I think I can see/imagine your arrangement. It makes sense if you follow what you said about lightweight materials. This would work well for me if I could just be sure about the edge. You see with...

    Yes that is exactly what I had planned for the 2 portions that I named Left & Front. As for the Right side, that is where my confusion begins. Sturdy and simple is what I need. However I asked the...

    I agree with you on the cantilever. It seems as though that is the domineering theme here. I like your idea about using a pedestal for sturdiness. As that is a must for me. I tend to lean on things a...

    O-kay, here is my situation. It is a newly finished basement. (I had it finished especially for this layout). 30' X 30'. Ceiling is a drop ceiling with the 2' X 4' rectangle panels. I had never...

    You know this is not entirely out of the equation. I have a Honda Element, and one of the things I required before purchase was I wanted a strap so when the back hatch was opened, I could close it....

    Hey I like that Gerton idea! I honestly think that is a good possibility. Center mount, but I could bolt it to the floor, making it very steady. I will look further into it.

    My humble...

    I had the thought that 2 1/2 feet of width would be the optimal size for me reaching left, right, & front. I figured this would allow a comfortable reach without knocking future structures. Also I...

    Again, another novel idea! One I will definitely check into. And sorry to hear that your wife is in a chair. No fun, as I'm sure the both of you have learned. (usually a difficult journey) Thank...
  14. Any ideas for building a wheelchair friendly layout?

    Hello again folks. I am in need of your wonderful world of knowledge. I am and have currently been wheelchair bound for almost 18 years now. Finally I have the time and room for a layout but my...

    As I stated at the start of this thread, I know nothing about this little engine, as I only had time to photograph it as the building was closing up for the day. There was no one available to ask...

    While, they have done a nice cosmetic restoration, the UNIQUE sign doesn't look like it belongs. Even if it was the loco's name. The style of the lettering is from the 50s or 60s at the earliest. It...

    Yeah, now that you mention it, back then hemp would have been king. No nylon yet. Hemp very flammable!

    Yes, it is a compressed air engine.

    Hi folks

    This one is beyond me. I was visiting a Doctor's Office Friday when I saw this. The building was an old Cordage Factory (rope maker) and apparently this was what they used on the...
