First topic message reminder :

i am also still looking for some more cylindrical grain hoppers, and also anything of interest in the way of model buildings and track-side scenery, so feel free to offer some up if you have any laying about or know how to come about them

Wasn't able to visit the setup tonight due to chore obligations (6/30/2017), but I will try & make up for it next week. I did have something to tell 1mtvfan as well, but I've decided that such isn't a good idea.

packing will be finished at some point next week, and that is ALL i am visiting the layout for now, so once that is done, i will be out of the layout venture completely and will remain that way until the new one is built, unless that is not functional enough for me.

Update, my next visit to liptonville will be one of the last times i visit, as i will resume the plan to pack my things and prepare for its dismantling, I am saddened to have to take this action, but with NO plans from the builder to put in any landscaping, i feel it is the only option i am left with. My equipment will remain on the layout site, but i am planning to transport it back to my house if the builder continues to say no to my plans on landscaping

Paid a visit to the setup yesterday (7/2/2017) and was able to run a short freight train after solving some problems created as a result of a model freight car not co-operating. Was also able to help 1mtvfan do a little more packing, even though I still completely disagree with such a move.

it's my call to make and i have made it, so there will be no further operating sessions from me  for the remainder of the year, and if there is nothing regarding landscaping in place by spring next year, my equipment will be placed into some gym bags and transported back to my house to await the layout's dismantling, unless something forces my hand to act earlier.

update, TTfan has packed away 4506, so it does not get a final run, as i see no point in unpacking it just for that purpose, now all that is left are my 40' boxcars and the remainder of my container equipment TTfan's Alco unit will also be packed away as it has been left to sit, which is not what it was bought for

bit of an update from me here. I meant to visit the setup on Monday night but was distracted by a Skype group call. I wasn't able to visit last night either, due to a volunteer commitment, but tonight will be different.

and i stand behind my earlier comment, all of my remaining equipment will be moved off the rails by the end of the week, and so will the Alco unit that is meant as a backup for the b unit on the passenger train, since all it has done lately has been being made to sit and watch the world go by, something it was not acquired for.

update, packing will wait till Friday eve, hope TTFan hasn't damaged my container wells too badly, as he's said some were damaged slightly due to his trying to help, which is not necessary, because i am quite capable of doing the packing on my own.

Its not going as well as you might think Josh, as Charlie is continuing his boycott due to a train length (and subsequent weight) limit that is meant to be helpful in regards to locomotive longevity. Also, I've been having to endure a moderate amount of harassment about the issue. I'm sorry to say I wasn't able to visit the site again this evening (7/5/2017), but only because I chose to visit my other brother's new place. I'm cautiously optimistic that I can make up for this tomorrow evening (7/6/2017).

that's part of it, but ONLY a part, the main reason is what it has always been, so after TWO AGONIZINGLY LONG YEARS, i have decided that i will not wait any longer and have begun removing my equipment in its entirety from the layout that remains bare and skeleton like, and unless something or someone forces me to take action to protect my equipment, i have refused to visit it anymore past this week, this is not something i have enjoyed doing, but my hand has been forced, so i had to make a decision, and this is the only option left open to me.

Update, my hand has been forced, so i will be bagging up my equipment after boxing it up and bringing it home, along with the Alco unit as TTFan has refused to use it as intended, so he will have to do without it now, as it was not purchased to be made to sit out and do nothing

further update, tonight or tomorrow night will be my final visit to liptonville for the rest of the year, as i am bagging up the items that i have packed away previously, and will pack up and bag what i have left out prior to today, so i should be out of the picture by next week, everything will be brought home and the bags will be sitting on the 3rd floor of my house. again, i am saddened to have to take this action, but TTfan has threaten to toss my equipment into the trash if it sits on the layout site unused for much longer, and with no work on landscaping even close to starting, i am not going to operate my equipment on an unfinished layout any longer.

still further update, have started transporting my model rail equipment home, only about 3.75 so far, but i will keep going until it is all home, west line tracks look very barren now, but this is a choice i am going to stick with, TTfan is being a btard and has hidden the alco loco, but i will find it eventually, because it wasn't made to sit out and watch as things pass it by.

One more update, well cars are fine, it was a drawbar that broke
Sadly, these drawbars have become EXTREMELY hard to find or are nowhere to be found
so I may have to make some homemade ones or talk to a buddy of mine and see what he can do
with his 3D printer to make some for me and TTfan

Haven't been to the setup at all this week, but such is mostly due to friendship obligations. I'm cautiously optimistic about being able to visit the setup at least once during the coming week but nothing is guaranteed. I've been told that some of my passenger equipment has been moved into the now-former container yard 1 recently, but I'm still not entirely sure if such is true or not.

it's still a container yard, but it's just looking so bare, that it looks a tiny bit nicer to have some equipment placed in it

will go sometime later in the next week to transport more of my equipment home. i still feel saddened to have to do this, but as the demands to put in some landscaping in place have been ignored or declined, i see no other option.
