I would like to explain just a little bit about my “layout”. First, the railroad is called “I Am Broke Railroad Line”. Two, our home is on the Gulf O Mexico (Galveston, Texas) so it is elevated on piles some 18 feet up in the air and this area is used for parking. All the bedrooms are reserved for our self’s, my son and daughter and their families, when they visit….so that leaves my layout to a small area in our hunting, fishing, surfing, beach combing/ & office/ room. The size is just for me….a little larger that 2’ wide by approximately 6’ long (I hope to post a picture of the layout-in progress in the near future). By the way, the layout looks goods when viewed from a point about 100 feet away from it.
If I lose the layout to a hurricane….big deal. My collection of rail cars and limited c\selection of steam engines are kept in plastic storage units that can be placed in a truck or trailer when we know we need to evacuate due to a hurricane.
Some might say,…..gee, look at all the sand you have for your layout. That sand has tar balls on it (like the oil and that you have seen coming ashore in Louisiana.
