Thanks George. Hadn't watched it in a long time. Amazing that the operations are still very similar. I wonder how much longer it will survive.

I appreciate you thinking of me.

I am new to this thread. You have smashed me with your inspirational modelling. What a great shoreline. It really came to life after the grass application went on in the 9th section. Beautifully sparing with the spread of the grass, so often it is overdone.

Love the barnicles on the woodwork. The overall scene has a great use of space to make it look real.

Posting to close out the Eastern Shore Railroad in N Gauge; Take 2. I am writing this in a good state of mind, not with sadness. Although I didn't finish the layout (didn't get to the super detail level), I accomplished something that I hadn't achieved in previous tries; I was able to model some of the atmosphere I'd hoped to capture from the first time I traveled along the Eastern Shore back in the 80's, and feel that the miniature version looked something like the real thing.

I was also able to hand lay track that was very reliable without having to worry about derailments and conduct a bit of operations. I've dismantled the layout and now am thinking about what to do next. My mind is wandering between N, HO, and O scale with each providing some benefits and limitations. Don't see it happening anytime very soon, but I have definitely not lost interests in model railroading.

So to end this chapter I'm posting some pictures, some of which I may have posted before, but some of the ones I like best. Thanks for all who've been following this thread for your interest, comments and suggestions. The support from this site is amazing and a contributing factor to my enjoyment of the hobby.

Well, sad that this effort has been terminated. But everyone's hobby journey takes a different path. I happened to traverse the peninsula last fall to and from Outer Banks and many scenes along US 13 brought this layout to mind.

Thanks for sharing it with us.
