Every picture tells a story from Ken Plumb

The blog post said that getting pictures of your models on layouts was rare, so, why not mine?
I’m no craftsman, and my little pike is not professional grade, but I’m having much to much fun to care. As it is, I make things and plunk them down somewhere while telling myself a story. After a while, the story changes and so does the stuff… (Everything, including track, gets moved about.)

So, here it is 1930 in Fort Smith AR’s south side. The Parker & Watts circus is ‘wintering over’ in the old Western Wheelbarrow Factory (the furniture factory, of course), and, being good neighbors, use the elephant to shift box cars for the Arkansas Coffin Company across the street. (Which actually happened)

Ken, I think your layout is fantastic and that you underestimate your skills. I am still recovering form Skippy's Hot Dogs. At present I am working on the warehouse. It is going to take me a long, long time before my models are as good as yours. Working without instructions is my biggest problem.

I like your layout. We sometime get so involved in details that we don't have time for FUN. I just found a DVD that my late father had made of our home movies from the 40s. It shows me having a lot of FUN with a very sparse Lionel layout, sometime we should just think as kids.
