Mark, . .Here's a starter, and I'll try and post a few each day. The editing takes a little time and we have been rather busy here, so I know your patience will be rewarded. Rick, . .Please feel free to comment along the way.

Here's an East bounder entering Irvinville:

Very nice shots! My favorite is the one above called "'EMPLOYEES' PARKING AT COLUMBIA PIPE YARD". I love the way the tracks are in a cut like, coming out from under the bridge.

Once again it must be said - your progress still amazes me. After finishing my basement and starting benchwork, etc., and being pleased with my progress, I look at what you've done and am in awe. Well done!

On the original plan, there was no grade coming east out of Irvinville, it was all going to be flat. The track height from Tallman to Shelburn was to be 48 inches. However we found early on that it would conflict with the height of the buttress walls which were at 46 inches. Since the mainline switches were going to have Tortoise switch machines under them and the mainline was right over the top of the buttress wall there was an access issue with the track at that height.

So it was decided to raise the track height to 50 inches from Lebanon to Shelburn to gain access. So a grade was needed from Tallman to Irvinville. Turns out it was a great idea scenic wise as well.

Allen,
I'm not sure what era your modeling, but I love what looks to be a Dodge Coronet which was stopped by the police and the pickup truck is superb, weighted down bed and all.
Keep it coming.

I gotta tell you, I really like the paint scheme on those engines! Is that the club road name and scheme?

Rick, . .Here's something I resurrected from TOPSY-TURVY which pertains to the recent e-mail that was sent out concerning our last buttress-wall pour some four years ago. I thought our forum readers might be interested, and I will also post the pictures from the above e-mail here in the immediate future.

TOPSY-TURVY is nearing its end. With the completion of our concrete work, a new thread entitled,
SANTIAM PASS LITE will begin. The new thread will cover the building of our new layout.

Before posting the final pictures of our last concrete pour, here are a few before and after shots of our last
5 1/2 years' efforts:
