A mere 18 months after its birth, the La Veta Pass Route is going to have to be dismantled, hopefully to live again in a new location. This wasn't supposed to happen. This was supposed to be the last house we owned before we retired to the Sunny Isles sometime a dozen or so years down the road. But my wife got a great job in the Raleigh area, really too good to say no to, and off we go. We bought a house, with a decent sized unfinished basement, in Wake Forest, NC, and the LVPR is going to going to be U-Hauled up there in a few weeks. It was not designed to be modular, but it was built in sections, and it will be taken apart in sections and moved in sections. The 18 foot finished yard and engine facilities are going to be split in two pieces and moved with the legs and backdrops on, I should be able to drop that into the new layout. The other 20 feet or so will be cut up in sections with the the legs and backdrops removed and I will try to use them if possible in the new layout. This will suck, but another layout will arise from the pieces of this one It is a prime example of how life can get in the way of model railroading. This will be the fourth layout in my adult life I have not been able to finish due to divorce, disgust or dislocation. Hopefully the fifth will be the charm. Here are a couple of pics of the late and lamented, and I will try to remember to document move and post the experience, if anyone is interested.
