I've been making some fresh sawdust.

A by-product of this process is that Sand Creek is now a more manageable 3'3" long, having reverted to the original single scene and fiddleyard format that it was built in as 200th St Yard before I extended it to include three scenes in just over five feet.

The layout now has a half decent chance of survival because there's more chance of it getting played with in the smaller format... Big layouts and me don't seem to mix. Rolling Eyes

I always liked that layout for the sense of space it has - personally I thought that was as true in it's extended form, as it still is back in it's original state. Idea Very Happy

Errrm, no, but it's currently offered for sale in the Bring and Buy section.
