The layout will start north of The Village of Osgood at the "storage" yard, along with the small siding at Osgood (both have been torn-out) and the 1724ft Viaduct above the Little Shenango River, the original B&LE Old Line, the former NYC RR's JF&C Branch and the former Erie RR's Chicago—New York main line at Osgood. Then starting at the street crossing in downtown GREENVILLE, PENNA. to the passenger terminal, around the bend the the Greenville Shops (all the bldgs, including the roundhouse & table), over the double bridges on the Shenango River and endind in the Shenango Yard behind the old United Oil on the Sharon Rd just south of Greenville

This is my dream. A whole building just for your trains. (On my way to my sad scary unfinished basement)

Can’t wait to see this come together.

The budget for 2018 has pretty much been used up, plus a little... Time to get UBERING... JUST IN TIME FOR ALL THOSE HOLIDAY PARTIES

I bought a steel building from US steel buildings, about 6 years ago. Got it for pennies on the dollar. It has been one of the best investments I have ever made. Mine is the quanset hut type, but 16 foot high in the center. Used to hold my off road trailer, my dually, my FJ Cruiser and the wife's Volt. Now it holds my junk for work and the train layout.

Like you, a couple of neighbors put it up. Really concerned at the start, but after two or three of the arches were up, it became quite easy.

I really like the two story idea though. Much better idea I am sure.

Be careful out there Ubering or lyfting. Some dangerous folks out there. My son and his wife did it for about 6 months, then got the rider that creeped them out. No longer doing it.

Congrats sir. I am lucky I live out in the sticks, and permits are required, but no one ever does them. My building was ordered by CalTrans so it meets all requirements so not worried about it. Mine has been up 6 years now.

Really anxious to see it finished, meaning trains running lol!!!!

Finished another inspection- gutters & down spouts. Got one of my doors installed, picked up the roll-up door at local auction for a song & dance- paid $235 for a $880 door. Going to build two 10x8 barn-type doors for the front.

Had the "FINAL" inspection done on May10th for the Building Permit. Doors have been hung & glass installed.
Now I just got the Permit from the state for Electrical, hopefully the electric will be ready for inspection in a couple weeks...

Can't wait to see layout progress. I grew up driving through Osgood once a week. Those orange locos and the Osgood bridge are the whole reason I'm on a model train forum.
