          I have soooo much in N there's no getting out; around 2000 pieces of rolling
          stock and locos.

          know you'll all know what I mean.

            Sorry to read that you're moving on from Z. You brought a fresh perspective to the forum. I hope you'll comment every so often, if only to say "this is how it's done in N."
            If you don't mind some advise from someone who has a little too much diposable income and no one to give me disapproving looks: even in a since scale try to focus on a a reasonable plan. You realize that if your 2000 units were 50' box cars, that's a train that's nearly three city block long! I limit myself to aquiring only items from my history: trains I or my family have ridden, roads from Northern Califonia from my lifetime, and cars that migrated (usually unexpectedly) to California and only one layout at a time.

            All the best,
            Mark

              Thanks Mark,

              I'll chime in every now and again, this group and the IN RR yahoo group are hands down my favorites.
              The N layout is at best half done! Bench work is complete, the mainline is only about a third done. The main yard is 10 rungs wide with the main splitting it into 2 equal halves and is 15 feet in length. With all the industries and sidings it easily accommodates all the cars. Still lots to do, I'll be happy to send the track plan if you'd like!
              Ahh, this is a Z forum not N.
              Thanks again all!

                Thanks Rob, its more of focusing my efforts and hobby dollars.

                I have soooo much in N there's no getting out; around 2000 pieces of rolling
                stock and locos.

                HO Traction, well all I have to say, its like your high school love and I
                know you'll all know what I mean.

                Everyone on this forum is such a wonderful person and I will stay
                subscribed!

                Thanks again,

                Dave

                  Thanks Mark,

                  I'll chime in every now and again, this group and the IN RR yahoo group are hands down my favorites.
                  The N layout is at best half done! Bench work is complete, the mainline is only about a third done. The main yard is 10 rungs wide with the main splitting it into 2 equal halves and is 15 feet in length. With all the industries and sidings it easily accommodates all the cars. Still lots to do, I'll be happy to send the track plan if you'd like!

                  Dave,
                  Sorry to read that you're moving on from Z. You brought a fresh perspective to the forum. I hope you'll comment every so often, if only to say "this is how it's done in N."
                  If you don't mind some advise from someone who has a little too much diposable income and no one to give me disapproving looks: even in a since scale try to focus on a a reasonable plan. You realize that if your 2000 units were 50' box cars, that's a train that's nearly three city block long! I limit myself to aquiring only items from my history: trains I or my family have ridden, roads from Northern Califonia from my lifetime, and cars that migrated (usually unexpectedly) to California and only one layout at a time.

                  All the best,
                  Mark

                    Morning Eddie,

                    I hope you meant the 27 Squares of 220ing blog, my old Z layout.

                    The lighthouse pictured there is a MTL Laser cut kit #799-90-954. That was a fun kit to build!

                    The colors are a Brite White generic spray, Polly Scale Soo Red, Polly Scale Depot Brown and Polly Scale Aluminum.

                    Hope this helps,
                    Dave
