    This will be the 4th AW, first HO was back in the late 80's? Then the n, then the steam Ho. ;)

    What a surprise good to see another convert to a switching layout :)

    Hope all is well, and there is not something forcing you to leave?

    No Ken, we are fine. We just want to be near family - don't see enough of our grandson, also sons and wives, my brother and sisters, etc. Definitely not going back for the UK weather! ;)

    That will be great I am interested to see your design, when is the move planned?

    It will not be so much of a design, but shuffling things around until they fit! I can reuse some buildings off my last Layout, suitably 'Americanised'. I just want to be able to have several car spots to make interesting switching.
    No date for the move Paul, depends on a suitable property turning up. Hopefully quite close to Matt, so we can interchange cars.
    No doubt the layout will evolve eventually!

    Back to North American prototypes? What happens with your European models? Stored for now?

    Stored for now Ken, but will gradually appear on eBay after we get back to England. I will keep a few favourites :)

    What type of locks you going to use for the layout? Will you be doing DCC with sound?

    I already have DCC so will keep that, especially so we can have some Alcos with sound! Does mean that Matt will also need DCC ;)

    WOW no more european layout! :( This was my favorite series of models as there aren't many of us continental modelers on here. I will miss the updates.

    What are you doing with your catenary? Just curious as I'd hate to see it get thrown away.

    Catenary will be offered for sale on eBay soon, along with most of my European models

    One minor change for your blog, a spelling. The south end interchange would be Harlowton, "ton" instead of "town". :)
