A lot has changed on the Hitop!
Posted by airborne101 on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 11:07 PM

As it's been I believe four years since I last posted elsewhere Here about my PC Hitop Secondary layout, my version of MR's Virginian project layout of 2012. My layout was then published in the March 2016 issue.

A lot of changes have been made, particularly my expansion of the original 4x8 off both front corners. To make this short, those interested can see everything at my website: www.hitopbranchmodelrr.com

Welcome back Airborne101!

https://hitopbranchmodelrr.com/

Made the link clickable. I haven't read all the way through the website yet but it looks really interesting. I see some seriously fine modelling there.

I'm just a dude with a bad back having a lot of fun with model trains, and finally building a layout!

Great work, airborne!  Thanks for sharing your progress.  I hope you post more instead of waiting so long!

Thanks everyone! 
My plan for this year. I have one 2x4 foot module I plan to add with three more industries sometime this spring, so I'll post here as well as the website when this work begins. All the supplies I need except for fascia board are on hand. All the track, switches, buildings,wire, and scenery are on hand already.

Sounds like a great plan for the new year.

I hope you are around here frequently, and I would love to see your efforts shared in Weekend Photo Fun. That is my favorite thread every week.

First of all.  RIP. Paul.  Good knowledge lost. Such is life though.  I guess that last talk was ment to be.  My condolences 

some of the bets layouts are not very large.   Looking forward to seeing more of your work.  Really good stuff
