The TMMC has come a long way in the past couple of years and I sincerely thank everyone for their input, comments and advice. There's still so much more to do. Ready for part II? Let's go!

I just want you to know that you have really changed my approach to the hobby after more than 60 years of model building.

I truly love the way you draw and color your track plans.

Works of art in and of themselves.

I'll second Darryl, your track plans are exactly how I think plans should be drawn. Over the years the model magazines would change the way they would draw plans, and about the mid 80s they drew them like you do, which I feel were the best look. I would remember spending hours just looking at the plans and envisioning how it would be in an actual model. To me the current computer generated plans are stale looking. your plans have the perfect combination of hand drawn and colored and computer drawn and colored.

Dave,

I had never noticed the natural bridge before on your track plan. It is another nice touch! Was it inspired by the natural bridge on the Fiddletown and Copperopolis Railway?

Thanks,

Reg Barron

Thanks! Yes, the natural bridge was inspired by Falberg more or less. It's something I've always wanted to include on a layout since I just love the preposterous whimsy of it.

Thank you very much, gents!

I was able to scratch out a little time to work on the O&F Saloon today and managed to finish up the lean-to addition.



If I have time tomorrow I'll finish the fancy trim on the upper facade. Then it's just the roof and a few details and this one is will be ready for the layout.

So glad to see San Lorenzo firmly planter on your track plan.
Now as for the saloon, don't think I've ever heard of one that also sells guns & powder.
Nice looking saloon though.

And the saga of Olson & Furlow's continues. Today I finished the trim and cornice on the upper fašade.
