I’ve completed a major reorganization of the Layout Construction Photos section on the main website. As the layout has grown (and the number of photos has increased), I found it getting increasingly cumbersome to add material. I originally started by adding photos in a linear fashion as I worked around the layout. But as I started jumping back and forth to various layout sections, that approach wasn’t suitable. I really wanted to keep photos of a given area together, but it was difficult to do that, and navigation through the photos was poor. Now the photos are grouped, generally by the various areas of the layout that they pertain to. Hopefully this will make things simpler for all of us.
I’ve had to rename a ton of files to accomplish all this. One negative side effect though was that all of the links referring to the renamed pages had to change as well. Hopefully, I’ve gotten them straight. But if you find something out of order, please drop a line and point out the error.
I hope you enjoy the new format . . . let me know what you think.
Last Saturday I made the pilgrimage over to Hammond to attend the annual banquet of the Southeast Louisiana Chapter, NRHS. As usual, I enjoyed visiting with the folks there, and after an excellent meal we had a nice presentation by Rick Pitcher on passenger service back in the “good old days”. Afterward I spent a few hours over at the depot and managed to catch a few trains going by. Another great day!
And I’ve installed a few more Tortoise switch machines on the layout.
