Just checking to see if there would be any interest in another EOD CAMPAIGN, especially since I still have a hull started from the first EOD?

EDO III

Preamble:

SCENARIO: It is a POST APOCOLYPTIC WORLD with mankind in decline. Their numbers are not enough to sustain power stations, oil refineries, local and state governments or an infrastructure much bigger than a farm community (animals are almost unheard of) on which to grow barely enough food just to keep from starving. Families that are intact are almost unheard of, so small groups band together to either carry on in some civilized order or they become themselves a menace to other by killing, raping, and gathering food supplies by the extermination of those who have not declined into the abyss of becoming totally barbaric.
If this were not enough to contend with, hordes of inhuman (ZOMBIES) roam the earth searching for living humans to feed their existence. While the two groups of human’s battle each other they must fight more savagely to protect their meager colonies from the (ZOMBIES).

MISSION: If you accept to become a part of the third group who build AND organize along the lines of RANGERS. They help any human by giving aid, instruction, food, weaponry, but mostly by killing (ZOMBIES) in the thousands and to try to bring the two groups of human together in hopes of them being able to have a better chance of survival.

Since fossil fuel is almost non existence and electrical power stations are all but useless, alternative types of power supply, transportation, and weaponry must be thought of experimented with tried and built to help with protection, harvesting, gathering, and maintaining an existence that is not just bearable but will give hope to all mankind.


I say build anything that will help the colonies and rangers to exist. And bring those unfinished projects from the past EOD's along to help us out.

My entire layout depicts the period immediately preceding the 'Strike of the Mind' depicted in Atlas Shrugged so, while it depicts a coming RESTORATION of the Constitutional Rights protected by a government that confines itself to the limits of the US Constitution, it simultaneously depicts an END of DAYS for the unconstitutional Federal Leviathan.

Unfortunately, the more poignant aspects of this layout likely will not be completed in time for any such competition and many of the current EOD aspects of the layout won't be obvious to those not familiar with Ayn Rand's masterwork.

For example, I have a Taggart Transcontinental; San Sebastian Line 2-4-4 'Suburban' that I'm working on, but unless you understand the reason why this locomotive would be operating in the United States (namely that Mexico has become a Socialist 'Peoples State' and nationalized the railroads, forcing Taggart Transcendental employees to flee in such an antiquated locomotive, in order to avoid becoming slaves of the State), it wouldn't be obvious that the presence of this locomotive is a sign of the coming 'Strike' and the End of Days for the Statist...
