Gary-

Just devoured my copy of MRP 2021..... besides showcasing your layout & the TRW shoutout, it was one of the most well written layout articles I’ve read in years.   
Awesome work!

Thank you Michel, much appreciated.  As much as anything, my goal was to tell a story.  Putting thoughts to paper was an excellent opportunity for me to take stock of where I'm at now, relative to my pre-layout expectations.  Still a long way to go though.

IDK, is it really that simple?   We think of TRW as 'free', but would there be any sort of copyright concerns?  Also, would anyone posting to one of those threads have to give express permission to quoted, and/or be referenced as a contributor, co-author, or whatever...?   Would posted pics be of sufficient quality for print (ownership questions notwithstanding)?

Oh, I was thinking of build threads where the work being presented was largely the product of the OP.  Things like DCC sound installs, 3d printing projects, your Dash-9 detailing project, or any number of sub-topics from various Layout Engineering threads.  As much as I like the forum format, there is something to be said for thoughtful, edited "print" content that tells a single story.  Articles that emphasize the "maker" aspect of model railroading might attract a whole new cohort to the hobby as well.

Gary,

Great article in MRP 2021.

I showed your MRP article to Alicia and she said, "I remember that layout."  That and the pizza afterwards.

Thanks Bernie.  I remember that visit (and pizza) well!  My regards to you both.

I finally picked up my print copies today and was delighted to see that your fine backdrop article was adjacent.  Coincidentally (perhaps), both articles featured BNSF GEVOs in the lead photo.

Congratulations Gary - your layout joins a growing list of Vancouver layouts featured in MRP so our area has fared well.

pretty cool. I like our Horseshoe Curve out here in PA but the Loop is very cool.

Precious little, alas, but thanks for asking.  Once COVID hit, the impetus to make progress for ops sessions kind of fizzled.  Aside from building a few more signals, the layout has sat mostly idle.   My overall motivation has not diminished however, as I have been focusing on rolling stock upgrades with my new 3d printer since last December.  (It's very addictive.)

That is likely to change soon as it appears that VanRail'21 will likely occur this September (assuming the US border reopens), so I really need to get back out there and remind myself how to boot it up!  :)  Hopefully, updates will follow soon thereafter.
