Well, Our roundhouse is mostly built - at least in O gauge scale. Denis and Scotty have been working together to design and print a table top model of the real thing. Pretty amazing what digital technology can do for you. I am in the Seattle area, Denis is in Cincinnati, and
Scotty is in Phoenix. Couple clicks of the buttons and we each get our very own building:

We’ve decided to print out all our planned buildings and build a table top diorama to display our Phase 1 LOOP and Phase 2 freight yard. We'll use O gauge track and some of our Museum’s engines and rolling stock to theme out the setting. Then use the diorama for fund raising and seeking corporate support.
