The Honeymoon Cove-SN3 Theory


The theory behind the SN3 portion is different from the HOn3 version because of design changes due to the size difference. Honeymoon Cove will be included in my home layout per the following changes. Honeymoon Cove is now a small LAKESIDE town in Colorado along the Durango and Silverton line. The village was originally a retreat for the well to do from both the east and west coasts since the late 1800's. Many of the people from the East Coast loved the New England fishing villages and built their homes in that style but far more elegant. They developed the port area to remind them of the New England ports and give them a place to dock their sailboats during the summer. Many opened up shops built in the New England Style along the lake. The railroad provided both transportation and goods to the resort area. Being on a lake the town developed as a long lakeside village but did not need an engine facility. Located 25 miles from Durango and several ski slopes meant the resort thrives in both warm and cold weather. Hollywood celebrities love the village and are constantly adding to the shops and dockside amenities. Limited kit availability will make this a huge challenge to create.
