What is Protocrastinator?

A Protocrastinator is a person who puts off finescale Railroad (and railway modelling) for no good reason.
Originally for me it was 1:87 (HO) scale. Problems with acquiring the bits and pieces led to extreme dissatisfaction and the project stalled. Now I've acquired an O scale boxcar and I intend investigating Proto 48 as a finescale project.

A couple of things

First things first. Remember this sketch of the front left hand side of the layout?
Well, I think I have sourced a suitable building for the location. It's this one. What do you think? I think it will be quite passable. It's from Northeastern scale models. I've never made a wooden kit before. So I'm quite comforted by the fact that these kits are designed for those who have no experience with wooden kits. I wonder if I might even be able to do a slight conversion on it and put an office door in place of the large door shown on the picture.
Secondly. I was planning to use this layout as the example for the small layout workshops I'm presenting at the Princeton Model Train Club in the forthcoming weeks. Well I had a rethink and I thought that it might be a bit big and involved for that purpose. So I have started to develop a new idea. A much smaller layout that will be much easier to build and complete in the alotted time set out by the workshop classes. As you may well know all my layouts have a blog and this new one will be no exception. You'll be able to follow it at Cwm Lwch.
There you go another layout, another blog. I'm a troubled soul. I really am

  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog a while back. I had forgotten that you were a runner, too. Anyway, I enjoy following your blogs. You're certainly inspiring me to get back into modeling even though I have little to no space for a layout.
