As you can see there's a new dog on the line. Our Milwaukee Special now has a big brother, the Hiawatha! When it's running either lead, follow or get out of the way because the Hiawatha is not going to be delayed for anything.

Im proudly sharing my first model train layout with yall. The Cheesy System  is a lesson in efficiency measuring 48 X 69. Notice the stretegery I used to provide access to the bathroom and underwear drawer by cutting out the corners of the layout.

 

My Milwaukee Road SD18 doesn't have a horn so I improvise with air whistle seen standing in the center of the track next to the Hiawatha billboard. Some people may think the whistle isn't appropriate for a diesel but I don't care these are after all toy trains. 

 

I was preparing to lay down the new mainline of a O27 track to accommodate my Milwaukee Special the evening it arrived when the power went out. Luckily my battery operated billboard provided enough light to find a flashlight. With a few cordless tools, I was still able to put down the track and thirty minutes later when the power returned we were ready to run. 

 

When I decided I'd add a mountain to the layout it took fifteen seconds to pull the Charlton Heston kite off the wall and lean it against the dresser. If I ever decide to put a tunnel through Mt. Heston, I figure it will take about five seconds to lean it over the track.

 

I love the "Cheesy System" alterations are fast and easy leaving more time for operations. 

 

Now you can see the Cheesy System in Action!
