Two stations

My wife and I built these stations from kits. The first, tower/station combo is a LVM kit, the second is a RSM/RAil Scale kit. As far as place names, they’re places that mean something to us. The stairs on the Hudson MI station were done by hand, by my wife.

Very nicely done. Are those laser cut wood or card stock kits?
The RSM is laser cut. They’re both wood,with a some card stock.

I like how they look. They would be a great addition in a visible spot on a layout.
That’s the plan.
Working on a layout. Was going to be a double track , but not able to get the curves to work.

Double track on the same level requires 52" wide sections so it not possible to do it on 48" wide sections if the layout is "L" shaped.
That’s something I found out the hard way.
I see you have the best help in the world!!
Yup. My son. The layout is partly for him. All started when I pulled out the old train collection and ran it in our kitchen on AM track for him. I actually sold off 2 of my firearms and my Flyonel locomotives to pay for new Flyer Fastrack, building kits, and a Flyerchief PM Berkshire.
I gave all my firearms to my younger son..A son should get his Dad's guns, just my way of thinking.. What type of guns did you sell, if I may ask?
A Springfield Garrison 1911 9mm and a Ruger Mini-14 . I still have several. I told my wife that certain ones she is to keep for our son. The rest , do what she wants to with them.
Are you planning on leaving the layout outside?
No. We just sat it on an outside table while working on it.
No problem. I work in the gun business. My personal collection is pretty modest. But I do have some nice ones. I basically told my wife to keep the nice walnut & steel and the 2 revolvers I’ve currently got for our son, should anything happen to me.
