First topic message reminder :

i am also still looking for some more cylindrical grain hoppers, and also anything of interest in the way of model buildings and track-side scenery, so feel free to offer some up if you have any laying about or know how to come about them

Was at the setup recently and ran an "officers special" train. Had a lot of problems but I was able to accomplish my task. I don't know if the LCVR will be in existence for too much longer now though as the owner of its home building has taken very ill (as of 7/11/2017) and is mostly bed-ridden as a result of this illness. As mentioned a few years ago, the property currently housing this setup is to be sold once its current owner passes away and this will mean that it will have to be dismantled. I know that its a waste of my time but I specifically implore 1mtvfan to give up his present mentality and pay a visit to the setup for an operating session (even if it means begrudingly obeying the "limited length" rule).

as long as that BS rule is in place, and without landscaping in place, i will not operate anything, i run long trains or i don't run any, and i won't operate on a skeleton anymore

one more update, my gran, as well as TTfan's, is getting very close to "the end" so that means that dismantling the layout will have to start soon, just to make it easier to dismantle for later, this is a decision that we have been dreading, but we have known about it for some time

Unfortunately the health issues that the property owner currently housing the setup is having has forced me to start packing up my own equipment now, but a small amount of it remains on it so I am able to have operating sessions... at least for now anyway. I honestly don't know if the owner of the place that myself & 1mtvfan are renting space in will allow a replacement to be built in it attic space (or at least half of it) or not, but I'm trying to remain somewhat optimistic about the matter.

well, whatever the case may be, i may just refuse outright to run my equipment on the new layout if I deem it unacceptable for my tastes, and i will also refuse to operate under that weight and length limit BS as long as it remains in place.

Update, set will most likely remain up for some time before the house it is housed in is put on the market, but i will remain out of the game as long as the BS rules are in place instead of landscaping

Spent an evening at the setup recently and had an operating session (which was frustratingly problematic). Gotta say that these sessions definitely aren't the same as when 1mtvfan was a part of the setup, but he's made his choice. He's also mentioned the possibility of tearing it down.

yes, i have made my choice, and will stand behind it no matter the cost, for a 2nd year straight, if i go there, ALL i will do is pack more equipment into a large duffle bag and bring it all home

In continuation of my post from earlier, there really is no need for the setup to be torn down at this time as it will be a while before the building that's currently housing the LCVR will be placed on the housing market (due to it needing several physical repairs).

update, transported more equipment home today, i just have the remainder of my grain hoppers, remaining containers, and the miscellaneous items to go, really disliking the fact that i am forced to take this action, but with BS rules in place instead of landscaping, there's nothing more i can do except transport my equipment home and pack it away to wait for the new layout, if i deem the new layout acceptable, if not, my equipment will sit in a big box for the rest of its days until i can find a way of building my own layout.

Me and 1mtvfan's gran had a fall this past Saturday (7/29/2017), which has resulted in a minor injury, but this also means that she will be getting semi-permanent care as soon as she is released from the hospital nearest her place. Unfortunately I don't know what this will mean for the setup, but I'm mostly sure that it will remain until our uncle is ready to sell its current home. I also remain fully convinced that 1mtvfan is VERY wrong to boycott visiting Liptonville for the reasons he keeps mentioning (as its not like electrical issues are keeping him from running trains at all), but its up to him.

As I said on this thread before, the "length & weight limit" rule that's now in place on the setup is meant to be a way of making sure that locomotives can last as long as possible due to prohibitive costs now associated with this hobby (especially in this millennium). I've said this before as well, but landscaping the setup is NOT the top priority for us (especially now, due to the health issues currently being experienced by me & 1mtvfan's last living grandparent but things like making money to pay bills and the lack of time due to working a standard weekday job continue to exist as well). It really makes no sense to me why 1mtvfan is letting these issues control him so much because an era in our lives is very close to ending and could happen any day now. I have mentioned the possibility of him learning how to do this kind of work more than once but nothing has come of it (which is a very hypocritical move on his part from where I stand). I also have to admit that I'm still convinced it would be silly to it now though, as it will create a LOT more (and very dusty) work for us once the disassembly work needs to be done.

Regarding the matter of getting a model train setup built in some attic space in our parent's place, what 1mtvfan doesn't (or more likely won't) understand is that we are paying rent to live in this building and, like most renters, any changes to the space they're renting isn't allowed (plus neither one of us always know if/when our parents plan to have company staying over and/or for how long). I will conclude this post by saying that I for one remain at a COMPLETE loss as to why 1mtvfan has chosen to maintain a "shoot yourself in the foot" mentality in regards to this particular situation, but such is up to him. I do wish that he would stop deliberately starting arguments about this with our dad though, as this individual has other priorities to worry about (such as paying bills in addition to providing and cooking meals for those who live in his house). The fact that I also get harassment about this (albeit rather infrequently) is an annoyance and frustration that isn't appreciated or wanted.

i refuse to operate on an unfinished layout under BS rules, case closed, and with the landscaping work still not happening, my only option is to continue to transport my equipment home to wait the construction of the new layout, or pack my equipment away for good if the new layout is unacceptable for my equipment to run on, but i am however hoping i will not have to pack my equipment away for good,

Got an update to pass along here. As me and 1mtvfan's gran will probably be in the hospital for a little while due to her taking a fall over the recent weekend, its unlikely that I'll be visiting the setup as its home now has an anti-theft alarm with a disarming code and I don't have the best of memories these days.

Newest update for the setup here (as of 20:17 hours on 8/4/2017 anyway). It turns out that me & 1mtvfan's grandmother will not be coming out of the hospital at all due to severe kidney disease and trips to the setup have been more or less permanently postponed for this reason. This particular structure still exists for now but I'm sorry to say that I've got no idea about its future.

I also need to apologize for my lack of posting in this thread as of late, but i didn't have very much information and my computer went wonky on me recently (which was bad enough to warrant a 48-hour
stay in my nearest repair shop).

Thanks for the updates on your #train_set . Sorry to hear about your grandma's health.

I hope she gets better.

I am also sorry to hear that your train set might be re locating soon.

well, she's in the hospital to stay, and will be moved to palliative care when a spot opens up, because she's not going to get better now that her kidneys have failed and she has refused dialysis.
