I'm glad we have a more steady hand on the tiller here in Maryland, for once. 

I guess I better shake that pan on the back burner and see if it needs any more salt...

Wolfie's cabinet company got an exemption early on to continue ops, but then publicity shut that down.  It's near you, Adam, do you know if they went back and appealed?

People are saying its still operating.  There's questions if he's still involved, I've found conflicting reports but I have my thoughts.  As to not turn political, ill keep them to myself  :trollface:

Exciting update, Gov. Wolf just announced, and literally all he said, Construction can resume on May 1st.  No further details.  Turn up that burner @wm3798

So doodling away until I can start actually working on the layout.  One of my local friends keeps telling me to keep what I have and make that the York Sub, and rebuild Hanover Sub in the garage space.  I'm not against that but it's not going to happen that way.  I think I'm going to remove the wall that divides the current garage and layout space, in image would be just to left of furnace, and will takeover some of the existing train room.  But I also want to have a sitting area/crew lounge as well.



Of course, the bigger I go, the more $$$ I need to build it.

When I was younger and cars were a big part of my life, a guy once told me "Speed costs money kid.  How fast ya wanna go"?

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.
DCC is not plug-n-play.

Well the good thing is I think the max speed for the Hanover Sub is 25 in my neck of the woods :D

More than the investment in cash is the investment In time.  Big layouts take valuable time to build and maintain.  Keep that in mind.

Step #1 accomplished.  Land use permit application dropped off at township building.  Now we wait for approval to use the land that I'm paying the bank for

Wow, long time and no posts. 

Long story short, my original mason had left me hanging, somewhat due to the virus situation, otherwhat due to him being sketchy work habits apparently.  Either way he's off the job.  I had a second mason come in for an estimate.  Called back, gave me a number.  I asked if that is kit and kaboodle, he says oh no, that's just first phase.  So I ask him for finished quote.  Calls back, about knocks me over with the number.  I tell him I'll call him back.  All the while my framer is bouncing me thru his schedule.  I decide to get another quote from another mason.  Everyone is busy so it's taking way too long to get things started.  My framer calls me and says he can't hold a spot for me any longer and my project will be put on hold, at least with him doing the framing, until springtime as he has committed to framing 2 homes between now and February.  I tell him no worries, we'll cross that bridge later.  Well my third mason finally gets numbers back to me this past weekend.  I verified a few things with him this afternoon, just to be clear what is and isn't included in the number he gave me.  Turns out it's finished job and sounds like it's all a go.  So I told him to give me a start date for excavation and what he needs for a deposit and we'll call it a done deal.  This thing might actually happen ....

Might have to get serious soon about a track plan....

Good luck with your build. We’re in the process of building a new home and we’re almost minimally dried in... only need 2 windows installed. Siding is complete and exterior masonry wainscoting is in process. Been lucky (knock wood) on supply chain acquisitions but but builder tells me some of his builds are having issues obtaining some of the higher end appliances... like delayed 60-90 days after the scheduled closing date.
