Yesterday a few friends and I got together for a sad task. We had to demolish our late friend's, Rich Chrysler, layout.
Almost 20 years to build and 3 hours to get it in the bin. Hardly seems fair. I've been reflecting a lot that this is the eventual fate for all of our layouts. Dust to dust.
A couple of scenes were saved. All the structures as well. Many went to new homes already and the balance will be sold at local flea markets along with some of his rolling stock and locomotives.
Rich's eldest son, Geoff, who is an accomplished modeler in his own right is writing an article on his Dad's layout and hopefully it will see the press in a year or so. Stay tuned.
This is one of my favorite scenes from the photo shoot we had a few weeks ago. The interchange at Caledonia.
I'm pleased and honoured to have this model on my layout and will cherish it for sometime to come.
