Modeling the Annie

Unread postby Garry K » Sat Feb 25, 2006 11:38 am

Some folks may know that I'm modeling the Ann Arbor Railroad in HO scale in my four car garage (36' x 24') in Ann Arbor. The garage has a second floor and is heated. It only took two years, but at least now I have a complete loop of track so I can run trains. Someday I'll invite folks over to run a few trains, although being it's the Ann Arbor Railroad there's not a lot of trains running at once! Not to mention that I still haven't included Dundee, Milan, or Saline yet.

Next step is to get some more DCC decoders in more locomotives.

You've seen the model of the Clare depot in the waiting room at the Durand Union Station, right?

I need to custom build the engine house and yard office at Ottawa Yard in Toledo, plus some storage sheds for Fingerle Lumber in Ann Arbor. Plus a bunch more stuff.
