    • Excellent, thank you!

      • Larry, I was out of town when you posted the picture of your layout. It's looking great. You've managed to fill it with a lot of structures without making it look like your forced things just to have a bunch of buildings. :up:

        • Still plugging along on this project.

          Albeit very slowly.

          Got most of the ballasting done on track that will be visible.

          Sorry for the not very good picture.



          And an even worse pic of an area where I wanted to use just dirt instead of ballast.

          Turned out OK I think.

          Need to do a little touch up and cover some bare spots.

          • Looking good Rick, the track has that back woods look to it already.

                  Larry I must say I don't think I've ever seen 10 pounds of railroad stuffed into a 5 pound layout until now. Very nice. :up:

                  • Rick glad to see you back at this. Looks really good so far.

                    Now you just have to put in an hour or two each week and finish this up.

                    • Thank you Frank.

                      Rick, Jerry has some sound advice.

                      • Rick, any more work on your micro layout? Loved seeing all these tiny layouts!

                        • I acquired a nice GN15 engine this week so I thought I would pull out a cork board challenge I built. I'm thinking of a g scale railroad park with cabooses for hotel rooms or trinket shop / ice cream stand. Thoughts?

                          • How about the caboose being the ticket booth/gift shop?

                            • Mike, now that's some good input.

                              • Very cool little Gn15 engine! I second Mike's idea, I think it'd look good on a short stretch of track with a platform and a ticket window cut into the side.

                                I've still got my corkboard layout, but haven't touched it in an age! I'll get back to it one day I promise!
