Having occasionally been Larry's roommate at the Naperville RPM meet, I take this a little personally. I'm sorry I didn't get to see his layout after he moved a decade or so ago; the earlier layout was certainly worth seeing, and the plans for the newer one seemed to be a big improvement. Lots of other good memories going back to the 80s, including some "extracurricular" night-time outings with Larry and Tony Thompson, among others.
Yes, STMFC hasn't heard from me in along time, but I felt this was worthy of making my contribution. While I won't be changing my "deep lurker" status here, you can still contact me directly with any questions about NYC, Rutland, or S-scale.
