A few views of my 2 x 6 foot trolley layout, roughly imaging El Paso, Texas
circa 1954. Having to rebuild much of it after the cat knocked it off its
storage space near the ceiling of the garage. The damage was, in a word,
catastrophic.

Lovely modelling. Depressing almost starting again after so much work. For future reference, there is a well-known book over here called '101 Uses For a Dead Cat'. Could come in handy if it happens again! (Available from all good book shops. Disclaimer - Other similar books are also available)!
