Frank,
It's nice to see you fellows continue to construct great additions to an already great railroad layout. That lift bridge is a cool idea. Thanks for sharing your work.

Well, we got some serious work done on the backdrop Saturday -- not only fitting the backing boards, but also measuring and applying the self-adhesive backdrop in three segments. That was the delicate work, trying to make sure the three sections lined up properly so hilltops actually matched. We still have some fine tuning to do on this, but the baseline work seemed to turn out well.

Frank has updated his work on the car float. He won't say it's amazing, but I will!

You might have noticed the "Gateway To The Great Lakes' logo Frank designed for the Lakeshore Industrial Railway. I printed it on some decal paper and tried it our on our first official box car -- a patched Boston and Maine. Weathering to come later.

Thank you very much Ted.

Thanks Mike.

Rich, we were going to have a wood pier there but Iíve been a fan of the NY harbor rail carfloats for some time. So I decided to try something like that. Itís working out pretty good so far.

Jerry, thanks I really appreciate your kind words.

Frank,

Everything looks great but I particularly like the signs.

And the backdrop, Wow.

It's amazing how such a skilled group of modelers just happened to live in the same area and come together to create works of 3D RR art.
Kind of like The Who, Beatles and Stones finding each other to create masterpieces.
Well done gentlemen.


As you think, so will you be.
