I suppose this could be filed under the making lemonade out of lemons category. My wife and I recently moved to Marblehead, MA (which is fairly close to Larry Mosher, actually) and I had to tear up my admittedly small layout in Virginia. We are working with a landscape contractor to level some of our backyard for the purposes of a new railroad, but in the meantime, I've been going nuts without someplace to run the trains. The solution? Take over the back patio! I've only got a little loop going currently, but it's good enough for the time being and does allow me play with my trains after work (note the visible wire has since been buried).
