It is long and very hard to complete. Seldom can anyone tell me all the answers. But after having designed several layouts from this process I find that I usually can hit the nail right on the head. My suggestion is that anyone designing their own layout use it too! Do this first thing and force yourself to complete it. After that, you'll know exactly what you want to accomplish.

Subject: [NCIOG] Richlawn Railroad - "To Do" list for the Piedmont Pilgrimage
The town...seems about finished.
Guys (that visited my RR)
I could sure use your input. With the tour coming up and my Nov 1th open house, I'm asking you to put on your thinking caps to suggest what progress you believe would be the most enjoyable for visitors / return visitors. I'm working now on installing the trestle in the mountain area and completing the landscaping around it.
This is brain storming, so all ideas are welcome. What could I do in the freight yard?? The town area?? The unfinished alcove area?? etc.. I was planning on running two trains (slowly) with one having a camera car (same as last year). I didn't use any consisted locos, as I was having speed matching issues.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions! And, for the guys that didn't see the layout, any general suggestions are also welcome!
