Declaring Victory!

I have finished construction work on the PoLA layout for now. I plan to go back and work on the Borax factory and a possible extension later. But for now, we are declaring victory on this project.


  1. Congratulations. You do incredible work and I am looking forward to the book

  2. Bernie
    Really looking forward to the book. Great stuff.


  3. Another great layout project. Congratulations of being "finished" at least for the time being. That was a long train -21 cars- which I assume was about all you could run out of staging before running out of room. I look forward to future updates.
