Sammy, wonderful! Kudos! Great way to display all those vehicles, but of course not enough busses! I’m disappointed...

 

cheers

Haha thanks Jeff! 

 

There's a separate cabinet for those ~  😛

 

Will be posting more when I get around designing how I should 'display' them, though it should somewhere be close to this  😛

Do you guys think I should have fences in-between the tram tracks and the walking street? Looks pretty dangerous to me ~  😛

 

I'm a little slow on this.  Generally, you'll find a buffer lane of (usually) parked cars. But there are places where trams run along the curb like much of Lisbon. And yes, big trams. In Japan trams tend to be alone in the middle of street. (There probably is an exception somewhere--watch it bite me!!)

It's official. I'm moving!

 

Hence, i would not be making any more progress on Takahashi town.... It will also face the axe very soon.... 

 

But, what is brighter, i get to build a NEW layout! Exciting! This time, i get more space as well!!!!   🙂 

 

I will miss running trains on Takahashi though, there are several months before the axe and the move, so i guess i'll try to run more trains now ~

Wow! Great you will have more room for trains in the new place. Sad the old layout will go away, but most of it wasn’t glued down, correct, so you can probably salvage most everything from it.

 

uh oh larger place means more storage which means more trains and busses! At least the busses don’t take up as much space. Now you can do your big bus terminal and holding hard!

 

cheers,

Will you keep the idea of building the layout inside/under the dining table, or do you have other plan?

Haha yeah great memory Jeff! One thing i'm glad, i kept all of the usual book cases when i was 'compacting' to reduce the boxes to fit into my current 'one storage cabinet'. With the new room, i have like 5 of those!!!  😆  U know what that means!! 

 

The bus terminal... well, it will depend on how i will rebuild the room. hopefully i will have a larger table, so i can then use the current display cabinet to display the bus terminal and buses ~ I was also pondering on the idea of a bus display shelf, much like the train one i have ~ THAT would be fun wahahaha

I am thinking to combine the current dinning table with a spiral up to join into another table for a larger space. As for covering from dust, i will need to refrain from the glasses... They are getting heavy as i age and i dont forsee myself to be able to lift 20kg per glass much more in the near future...  😞

Sammy,

 

id say design your tables to fit what you want for the layout. If you are not using the glass top (yes those are a huge pain to move around and like you said will just get worse with time) then the old table base may not suit your new layout well. Helixes are a pain and take up a chunk of room as well. Maybe think sectional on the layout where it comes apart into modules every 4-6’ so you could move it if you move or break apart if you need access to back areas or under for wiring.

 

looking forward to seeing the new room grow!

 

cheers
