Hi gang,
I am re-designing my Hon3 layout for light weight materials and new techniques. So...oo my old monolithic Hon3 layout has to go. Before I drag it out into the yard and torch it, I thought I may ask if anyone wants it Free to take away. Now if you want to come and get it for land fill don't bother, I could do that myself. I really hoped it may be of interest to someone. I don't want any money, the track's thats down stays but I'll remove the BIS Couer De Alene mine unless you want to nominally buy the structure. (I saw one of these babies go for $200 US on Ebay, Not that I want that sort of maoney for it, it was my first Board on Board and is looking real sad.)
Following are some rough photo's to give you an idea. Also note there is about 5 years of dust covering the layout.







Note: The benchwork is L girder construction and the thing is 1m wide by 3m long and weighs in at over 150kg.
Oh and Rich the wire brush in shot 3 has been used to join some facia panels together!!
(just joking)

That's a neat looking little layout, Paul, but.... well, the travel time to pick it up might be a bit much. As for the bit bucket, it's a large one and will hold a lot of "other" comments. I installed the largest one I could find on purpose.

Hey Mike,
I could always get an Old Chevy and put a propeller on the driveshaft, some floatation tanks, load on the layout, could you meet me somewhere on the Californian coast? You'll need a long U-Haul

Thanks for the layout comments, It's sort of sad it's come to this, thats why I'd like a good home.

Barry,
Great idea but I'm afraid my laser station wagon would be swayback by the time I got home.

I will bring along some prints of the shots... I knew only local Melbourners would be interested in this one. Really not many Hon3ers left. They've all gone to that Bastard narrow 0 gauge

Paul,
Glad you only model HOn30, otherwise you'd have to re-enforce the floor in your house for a 300kg monster layout!!! Good luck off-loading it..I quite like the extended mountain edge...look forward to seeing a few more pics at Barry's. Barry, you can take that as an RSVP for the NMRA BBQ...see you next week mate.
