A guy will run into those down there from time to time... Well I made some tiny little otters out of polymer clay for a friend the other day and I don't think it would be to hard to build some lizards either. I might send you some scale Gila monsters when things slow down around here.

there is so much crap to unpack that I sometimes feel like having a big bonfire in the back yard!

I moved about 25 times already. Have boxes that I forgot what the  !@#$% have inside. Also my interests have changed also. So I started just throwing stuff away. Started to enjoy less cramped quarters.

Yes. I've reached the point where I realized that there are things I will never do or finish and they just take space and collect dust so out they go. No regrets.

Yep, throwing things away which aren't up to "snuff" or maybe the idea has matured or perhaps...

I had several small sections which really didn't serve any purpose or had grades (unwanted in the next layout) or how about this-I may, just may "relocate" the SCPA&M a bit further south to say, Big Bend, Texas. My friend Sullivan chose this area for his Chisos Railway (before he got subverted by diesels and British steam) and my original intent on the old Mogollon Railway was to build it in the same area. So, the idea ain't new.
Still thinkin' about that one.
Now, imagine a 2 footer running in deep canyons past desolate mountains along the US/Mexico border. Yes, pigs CAN fly.

This structure was a "faithful" model of the Big Bend Park office in the 1940's. This from the old Mogollon Railway, the building got demolished when the power line crashed on it-the end of the MRy.

Charles, I ain't sad about any of this. After all, it's just styrofoam and some Durham's water putty. The next buildings always turn out better than the last anyway. Matter of fact, that park office building would be far better with Daniel's nice tile roofing (see earlier posts).
As it goes, just imagine moving from a little old house which is falling down around you and the taxman wants way too much for his "cut" to a nice air conditioned brick home in the country with a large garage ready for a layout. Matter of fact, this garage is finished inside with insulation, sheet rock, and nice white paint PLUS a "French door" on the side and a window-ready for an A/C. Goodness, the old house didn't have that in the living room!
Coming up in the world, it seems to me.
