It’s been a busy month that won’t be slowing down any time soon. I enjoyed the RPM Chicagoland meet in late October then came home to close on a home purchase. That’s right; I’ll be moving again soon!
Actually, lots of stuff has already moved. The garage in the rental is nearly clear as all of those boxes have moved to the new home across town. Room painting is next, along with a couple of kitchen tasks. My hobby time will be limited for the next couple of months, but the holiday’s usually nudge the hobby aside as it is.
I know many of you are now wondering about the new hobby space. First off, there is no basement. We must have seen about 50 homes and none of them had a basement here in middle Tennessee. My lovely wife has offered me the garage for the new hobby space. The photo above offers is a decent look at the 21×25 foot space before lots more boxes came into the picture. Next spring, I hope to start converting this to an indoor space.
The Wheeling Freight Terminal will be set up in the new house and I hope to get it running again. An operating layout inspires more hobby action. I have another B&O prototype location in mind for the next layout project. I’ve found quite a few historic images and have scans of the ICC valuation maps. There will be more action than the Wheeling Freight Terminal, but I think I’m ready for it.
