The layout is gone but not the memory.

In June 2013, The crew arrived on Friday night and we ran trains til late.  The next day we again operated and ran trains better part of the day but when temps rose to 105 we called it quits and drove into town for a movie and dinner in air conditioned comfort.  Here are some pix from the operations.

Saturday night we began the dismantle and cataloguing of all cars and engines 

When we tore down the layout, a friend of mine brought his GoPro camera and we did a timelapse photovideo of the actual teardown process.

6 friends came down from the Pacific Northwest to help with the 3 day process.  Most of the big work occured over a shorter period time as documented by this video.
