Here is a first draft of what the big module section on our 10' x 14' 2" layout will look like:
TT Module 1 4 x 7.5.png
There will be a pair of loops that will run the full length of the layout, with three or four smaller radii loops at the end modules as well, which means that we can enjoy at least 5 or 6 operating TT trains at one time!

Mr. Kuehn told me yesterday, that he gets the new one in 2 weeks for testing. If all is fine starts the delivery at the beginning of next year.
Any words as to how the testing has gone?

I have spoken to Mr. Kuehn at the fair in Leipzig and myself haven't his contact data. On my layout plan are also his turnouts placed. We can only wait and see what is coming.

With the entire issue of the potential eminent domain on my farm, we have opted to not build a permanent installed layout, rather, we will stick with modules that can be easily moved as needed. Plans for the modules to follow soon.

Well, we got an interesting bit of news not that long ago:

The road expansion project has been called off, due to a lack of need for additional lanes of traffic. The bridge near us will still be replaced, but the realignment that may be done will only cut about 5-10' into our property, if even that. Considering that the house is 160' from the road, and the barn that I want to make into a train barn is another 70' further back, we should be good to build a permanent layout again.
