The bad news
Pottendorf, the O Scale layout, has been stripped in order to be re-cycled, it is hoped that it will emerge as a new layout in due course. Almost all the stock, buildings, scenery have been sold. Btw a steam wall paper stripper is a wonderful device for removing track without damaging either the track or baseboards.
The good news
A new home has been offered for the baseboards and a new(ish)idea has emerged for their use. It is based on an old plan for Schleching, which was where all this began seventeen years ago hopefully the concept of a small junction station is more enduring than the actual layout which had to be retired.
