Mike;
Thanks for the nice visit. I can't believe I forgot my wife's camera to document the visit. Mike is a good photographer. To me the layout looks quite different in person than in the photos. Mikes photos with a long exposure time give the layout more light than is available in real life. Also a person sees much more of the layout at once than in Mike's well done cropped photos. I am trying to attend an operating session in June, but my travel schedule may not match up with Mike's schedule.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit Jon, most people are surprised at how small the layout really is (22 square feet at this point).

Mike, I must say that being more interested in buildings than in trains, I tend to neglect the parts of the forum more specifically dedicated at the making of layouts. But I have finally browsed a few pages of this thread, and I can tell you I am really happy I did. What a great scenery, and some very nice places, even nicer when you consider how tiny everything is in N scale. Congrats on your wonderful work.

Thanks Frederic, I'm guilty of not spending enough time in other parts of this great forum and I need to do better!

No new progress on the railroad but we did have another operationg session. The first pic shows myself on the left and Rob Watson who works with me at the museum.




The second pic shows Robert Seay on the left and fellow forum member Jon Gearhart (LandNnut) who drove over from Tenn. for the session.




Overall it went well for only the second op session ever. Had one flat car which wanted to derail when pushed over a certain switch. Jon's eagle eyes spotted low profile wheels on one of the trucks so it will be a easy fix. The problem is there is still a car somewhere on the railroad with a set of low profile wheels on one end .

Thanks Mike I had a really good time. Yea Peco N scale turnouts with their generous clearances do not seem to like low profile wheel sets. And Mike's layout standard for rolling stock wheel sets is Micro-Trains pizza cutters. Don't know if that will fix the problem, but replacing the low profile wheel sets is the first thing to try. The problem was a pulp wood bulkhead flatcar in captive service to the paper mill(staging on Mike's layout).

Well Feb. came and went and right now I'm shooting for Sept., 1:1 things keep getting in the way. I did take this picture of a friend's two CH boxcars as they head for the Little Tennessee river bridge on their way to the L&N interchange at Murphy N.C.
