The layout is now on it’s wheels and the glue has long since set on the plywood and foam sandwich that comprises the top. Tonight I uprighted the layout and I’m getting back to enjoying pushing little paper templates of track around the layout’s surface. I feel like I have a plan in place that I really quite like and it would be in N scale.
As sure as I am that it will be N, that need to try something in a larger scale is almost impossible to quell and the closer I get to settling, the more anxious I get as I ponder if I’ve made the right choice or not. Many great thinkers from Ian Rice to Sherlock Holmes have opined on how you distill your options down to the few that are practical and that becomes your result. The urge to upset that obvious course is too indulgent to ignore.
