Do not worry I have not given up on the Oregon Trunk, I just have been extremely busy from the first of the year. I have been working on a few projects, but nothing really related to what I am doing here, so that is why I have not posted anything.
A few updates:
I have been asked to present at the 2017 Spokane Portland and Seattle Historical Society Convention in July. I will be talking about my journey in researching and modeling the Oregon Trunk. More information will be posted once the official announcement is made.
I have completed an inventory including photos of all my equipment. I have also decided to trim the fat, as it were, and get refocused on my goals. This has freed up some space and also given me some monies to spend on things I really "need."
Madras switching layout is under the process of being remodeled. I am no longer using it for training as I am not currently teaching those classes locally. I have decided to use the existing benchwork and attempt to salvage the trackwork to model something else, details coming soon.
I am also stepping back my Free-mo involvement. I have decided to sell off two of my modules as I have yet to participate in a large group setup since moving to Lewiston. I have two modules that are more than 75% done that I will complete in hopes I can participate in the future.
I may also be changing what I post on this page too, but for now I am going to keep it to projects I am working on that relate to the Oregon Trunk and other related model railroad stuff.
