The advent of warm weather and the many demands of late spring and summer have, not surprisingly, put a damper on layout construction. In a response to a recent Facebook demand for update pictures, I suggested that one should look at the most recent update pictures and imagine various rearrangements of surface clutter. Sad but true, not that I haven't enjoyed the time spent outdoors.
In partial compensation, please direct your attention to the new blogroll category "Working on Their Railroads," featuring two very-well-built layouts and a couple of other sites of interest to anyone interested in model railroading. In the meantime, I am trying to practice incrementalism (see here and here), although the only real shortage is spare time or, to put it more directly, the ability to leverage what time I have into progress.
