If you get bored or your interests change you can work on another area. Lately, more members of the JRD are operating their layouts according to a schema they devise for the layout. The layout may not even been designed initially for operations, but layouts can be rebuilt, expanded and changed to fit new interests.
George Gaige is a JRD member who has changed his layout and is still changing his layout to adjust to new interests.
