End Of The Line

Due to progressive dementia in the form of Alzheimer's Disease, I have chosen to discontinue my hobby of model railroading.   The layout is currently being demolished, and remaining usable items are available through Rocky Mountain Hobbies after September 5, 2020.

It has been a wonderfully satisfying run, and I am at peace now knowing that many items will be available to the model railroading fraternity.

Thanks to all of you for all the friendships and connections I have made over almost seventy years.

Choo choo!

As of today, September 8, 2020, my model railroad is being demolished and the salvageable structures and rolling stock will be for sale through Rocky Mountain Trains.  
See additional comments and photos after demolition at the Scenery page at www.turquoiseline.com/scenery .
   
All model railroads eventually come to an end, as does life, except that with model railroads one may again recreate the golden moments of full scale railroads based on one's visions, whims, and desires.
I have been fortunate to have been a part of this great hobby, as it allowed me to better understand the physical universe, leading to my profession as a an engineer and builder.  Most importantly, I have discovered a diverse group of interesting people who share my love of railroads, to my great delight.
 
It has been a great run, as all last runs are meant to be, and I am peaceful and thankful for all that I have done as part of this hobby and the people who also enjoy it.
Full speed ahead!
