Current project: restoring a 3' x 6' layout that we got from ConducTTor years ago. Following one of the turnouts coming apart, we opted to put it in long-term storage, which was not good for the plasterwork. The layout sat in storage in Georgia for almost 3 years, which I feel was not a good idea, but at the time, I was wanting to go "bigger" with a TT layout, so this layout got put on the wayside.

The plan is to restore it in time for a train show that we plan on going to in St. Cloud, MN in November, 2019. (Imagine, FOUR North American Proto TT Scale trains running at once...)

Paint has been applied to the damaged plaster areas to help provide an undercoating for new applications of model grass and rocks.

Here is the section where the turnout has had to be removed, as the outer rail had come out of the sleepers and would not go back in:

Very nice. I got my "TT Start" in 3mm TT, so I will always have a soft spot for 3mm TT.
