Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
As many of us adjust to the Coronavirus and its accompanying "social distancing", e.g. working from home, avoiding crowds, etc., I thought I'd post a reminder that occasionally taking a break and sitting still - whether we're talking about us as layout owners or the prototype equipment we model - can be positive too.
Over the last week I've been reviewing locomotive data from my prototype, and I discovered that a couple units that I thought had been active - one of which I just finished modeling a couple months ago - were actually down for maintenance for the entire month I model - May 2005. It appears as though the IAIS's Council Bluffs enginehouse was even busier that month than I remembered!
While some might scoff at the idea of modeling locomotives that'll never move under their own power, if we're modeling an engine terminal, I think it can be a fun way to really drive home the era on which we're focusing. I'll explain more and post some pics in my first reply.
