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

Its unlikely that me & 1mtvfan's grandmother will recover from her kidney disease but your best wishes are appreciated brandon. As for the setup, things remain the same for the most part.

our grandmother is not going to get better, but i still refuse to operate on the skeleton formerly known as the LVCRR so my transport runs are continuing as i still feel this is the only option i have left, as my requests to install landscaping on the skeleton have constantly been denied, and i have had enough of being told to change my priorities to match the conformity BS, even if it means cutting my evenings short  and knocking off early every night. and as of August, it has been 6 months since i have operated any trains on the skeleton. and there's no point in operating there anymore since it's as good as dead now. goodbye liptonville. Sad you will be missed dearly.

Unfortunately the hospitalization of myself & 1mtvfan's grandmother has made it virtually impossible for any of us to visit the setup (as the one person living in the current home of it is spending as much time has he can with his dying mother). There is an issue with a "home alarm system" as well, but I'm trying quite hard to get this to a point where I can handle it on my own (in order for me to get my locomotives and rolling stock packed up and brought home).

Got a bit of an update here. There is a plan to get the setup's current home "on the market" by the spring of 2018 "as is" but its anyone's guess if this will actually happen or not (since neither our dad nor our uncle has decided to put up the cash needed to fix the many issues that the building has just yet). This gives me quite a bit of time to enjoy the setup in its current form before it has to be disassembled. As for the setup's future, the plan to reassemble it (albeit in a heavily condensed form) in some attic space that belongs to myself & 1mtvfan's parents is still in effect. I have to admit that I'm not exactly thrilled about the prospect of possibly having to permanently box up some of my model freight cars (two of them are equivalent to 89' long) but such is out of my hands for the most part.

and i refuse to run anything on any layout with BS rules about length and weight in place, so it's looking likely that my equipment will stay packed up for the near future. Rip liptonville Sad

Sorry to hear things are not doing well with your #train_set , any ideas when dismantling and re locating will begin?

As it stands now, the setup will be dismantled and moved at some point in the spring of 2018. There are no guarantees associated with this plan however, as its builder still has employment obligations to deal with first.

thus making the wait even longer and more painful when it doesn't need to be, the sooner it is done, the
less the pain and suffering will be, last half of 2017 melts down to nothing but misery and boredom, no better than last year Sad

I also need to mention that moving the setup won't be the easiest of tasks to complete, as it is 60' long. Unfortunately I'm not sure how wide it is at present, but I do know that it will have to be significantly compressed in order to fit in the attic space that has been allocated for/to it. As I've mentioned before, I'm not exactly overjoyed about having to compress the setup (which will be renamed after its move), but I reluctantly accept the fact that it can't be helped on account of the illness currently affecting me and 1mtvfan's grandmother (who turned 94 on 8/22/2017 by the way).

well it needs to be dismantled NOW! not later, the sooner it starts, the sooner the misery can end, however, if the BS rules about length and weight remain in place, i refuse to operate ANYTHING, and my equipment will stay packed up, and out of view

Got some new information to pass along here. It turns out that there is more attic space available for the setup than first thought. The bed in half of this space cannot be removed however, which creates an issue for the building of a new setup (this will need a new name as well, but that's a low priority at the present time).

Hi all! got a chance to visit the setup after a month long absence recently, and things are still in place. I've packed up a few more pieces of rolling stock though, so I only have one locomotive and boxcar on the setup now. The setup's builder has all of his steam locomotives on it as well, but I'm going to try and help him pack these when the need & time to undertake such work comes.

yes, they will soon be the last locomotives to operate on the layout after @tigertankfan and i have begun the process of packing up our things and sporadically moving as many of them as we can physically move all at once and bringing them home from the layout. RIP LIptonville Sad
