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

well, the relocating of equipment has already begun, all we are waiting on is the dismantling

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.

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).

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).

well, it may be just @tigertankfan running on this new layout, but i have yet to see what the new set layout will look like before making any further judgement

the shuttle runs continue, but they are winding down, well for me anyway, i just have a few more items to bring home, hopefully i can fit everything i have left into one load, and with that one last load, i will be out of the picture for the remainder of the year. RIP liptonville Sad

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.

1mtvfan wrote:
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

Sorry to hear the end of the current #train_set layout that seems to be named #liptonville is starting.

It was a good run and loads of fun I am sure.

Rip Liptonville Sad

You shall live on forever in the #pictures posted here on this site. Smile

it was actually called the liptonville central valley Railroad, but liptonville for short, and yes, it will live on in memories and in the pictures here hopefully, because it's dead in real life, RIP liptonville Sad

Not too sure how 1mtvfan feels about this, but I found it to be quite fun. Hopefully the replacement setup will be just as fun but I honestly don't know about this either.

i've a feeling it won't be, there's going to be too many BS rules and regulations on the new layout, and those will probably keep my equipment in it's entirety OFF of the layout completely. although i still have some equipment to collect from the former liptonville layout

I know that I'm wasting my time by saying this but 1mtvfan needs to realize that deconstruction of the current setup CANNOT be helped due to our grandmother's current illness (which is incurable) and our uncle's plan to sell its current home once his mother passes away (on account of him not being financially able to continue owing such a large property by himself). He also needs to realize that the new setup will probably be just as fun... even if its going to be considerably smaller.

that my be so, but it will never ever be as fun as liptonvile was, and if the BS rules about length and weight of the rains running stay in place, i will not operate on the new layout, i may not operate if the new layout turns out smaller than i expect it, so yes, @TigerTankFan, you are wasting your time.

Just so everyone (other than myself & 1mtvfan) knows, the unthinkable has happened and the plan mentioned earlier (including the deconstruction of the LCVRR) is more or less in effect as of today (9/23/2017). the father of myself & 1mtvfan still has emplyment obligations to focus on at present however, which means that actual deconstruction may not start until early to mid November.
