I am loaded and ready for the Great Train Expo that begins today in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Although the layout is 10 feet long, I transport it (as well as my previous layouts) in my mini van. It is made to carry a 4x8 foot sheet of plywood, so other than about 1.5 feet of layout sticking out the back, the van works well. I built a simple wood frame covered with cardboard to shelter the exposed area while I transport it. It's only about 18 miles from my house, so while not ideal, it gets me there successfully. If anyone reading this is planning to attend the show, please stop by and say hi.
