Grande Valley Railway at home

My home layout is getting some serious attention starting out with a good cleaning.These pics show what I have got done so far.The layout goes around the walls in these dimensions  9'x 10'6" x25'6" x10'6" x 5'.It shares the room with a furnace,hot water heater,a workbench,and my computer.Pics will be in two posts.







As you can see there is considerable clutter under the layout too. :(

Between medical issues and somewhat loss of interest it has taken a fair amount of time to get myself motivated to do anything on this layout.here are the last 3 pics.If you like it let me know,if you think it is a POS let me know that too. :D







I have a NCE DCC system for it once it is operational again.

This pic is to the left of the first posted pic and is the main city on the GVR.This a never ending project because I just can't seem to settle on a set plan for it. :?



This pic is basically the end of the modeled portion.For lack of a better name this is the Grand river (a real Michigan river).Picture is somewhat photoshopped because there is a ugly access door to our gas meter in this corner.

Hey Catt.  Funny meeting you here  :D :D

As always, your layout looks great.  I remember you saying you'd been using it as a storage shelf for a while.
