It'll sure look good once it's in place.

Excellent work, there. I can't imagine how long it takes to add all those NBW castings!

Carl

Happy to do it. I just needed to give up trying to get the whole thing in a photo.

Dave,

Either that or a steeper grade so that the whole thing was not so long.

A couple of photos showing my progress. The latest work was installing the walkways on either side of the track:





Next is a bumper and rail.

Looking excellent, Mike!

Every time I see pics of your rolling stock (background or otherwise)... I get all ga-ga eyed and slobber n' drool.

Looking good Mike. Makes me want to build one also. Maybe someday.

As Andre said about those cars in the back ground, I have to agree. They are nice looking.

Andre, Bernd, Carl, Bill, and Bob,

Thank you very much.

Andre, just don’t drool on the wooden cars; they’ll fall apart. Resin and styrene: ok. And keep in mind that it took me 25 years to get my roster to this point.

Mike

Looks great Mike! Sorry if you have already mentioned it but what do you use for staining the wood? It looks very nice.
