Rick, have you had a chance to take pictures of any of the progress? Your project is near enough that I may come down and take a look sometime

Sorry I didn't respond sooner.

Keep in mind, this a state museum - so it runs like the government. First there were problems scheduling the carpenters that are going to build the enclosure for the layout. So everything got pushed back. As it seems now, we probably won't get started until after the new year.

Second, the state of Nevada is under an extreme budget crisis (like many states) and the outgoing governor's budget had 8 out of 11 museums closing by next July - including the railroad museum. We have no idea what the new governor has planned (but since he promised the voters no new taxes, spending needs to be cut).

We may still build the layout. We have until July before anything would close. So I'll be sure to take plenty of photos.

In case you stumble across this thread first here is the construction thread. Not much yet, but I should be filling it in with photos next week.
