    due to the loss of my fine motoric abilities I like to sell the lay out or donate it to a museum or club who is able to maintain the layout
    The layout will have it's last appearance 6-8 November in MŁnchen.

It is sad to hear that. Best to you going forward. I realize that shipping could be a problem, but I wonder if the new model railroad exhibit in Canada might be a place for your wonderful layout? It's called "Our Home & Miniature Land" in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada  www.miniatureland.ca
It says it will be the Canadian version of Germany's "Miniature Wonderland"
OHML's director is Jean-Louis Brenninkmeijer

There obviously is/was lots of logging in Canada, so the layout would fit the theme.

Jacq I am also sad to hear of your loss of fine motor abilities, your contributions to the world of research and modelwork will however endure so your legacy will continue. I hope that you are still able to enjoy the broader aspects of this area of our lives, at least you can still provide guidance and council to those following in your footsteps regarding the finer points of modelmaking.

Jacq

You should talk to Dave Revelia at the The Suncoast Center for Fine Scale Modeling .

I'm sure he might be interest.  They have the Muskrat Ramble by Geoff Knott there.

And the Dolly Varden by Laurie Green  & John Hunter.

Both of display.

Jacq, I, too, am very sorry to hear your news. If you do contact Dave Revelia, please mention my name and remind him your layout appeared in the Annual. -- Russ

Jacq, it was good to see your name pop up on this forum again, but the reason for it wasn't what I was hoping to read.  Really sorry to hear of the health battle and the reality of it.

I can also suggest Dave Revelia would be a good person to contact as a potential curator of the layout.  He was exception to deal with when we moved Dolly Varden over to Florida, and I believe your layout would fit in quite well to the Suncoast display (providing there is room).

Wishing you all the best,
Dan

Side note...
Jerry, it was myself and John Hunter that did Dolly Varden.  Laurie Green wasn't involved in this project.

Cheers,

 Finally found the emotional balance to sell the house and move to a very nice senior appartement. The layout has been donated to friends to see or it can be modified to show it in a museum. All my tools and gear has been divided between good friends who can use them.
 I still will visit friends and museums all over the world when possible as I ordered a very lightweight electric wheelchair enabling me to chase trains ( and girls )

Jacq, it's good to hear from you again!  Selling off the house, etc. must have been tough, but it sounds like you're in a good place.
