    360 degree panoramic view of the layout (PC users, click on the link below and select "open" or save to your C: drive or desktop and run from there):
    http://www.boche.net/trains/jasonbochetrainroom.exe (1.25MB download)

    2 mainlines run from the main train room, through a wall, through a closet, through another wall, and into the unfinished laundry room where the train dogbones, turns around, and comes back out.

    Use the mouse to go backwards, forwards, left, right, plus/minus to zoom in/out respectively.

    You'll find a yellow circle "hot spot" on the doorway that connects the laundry room to the train room. Click on that hot spot to "virtually" go through the doorway and see the other room where the trains are running.

    Hi Clerk, sorry, What I showed in my original post is ONLY for PC users, however, I believe I can make it work for MAC users as well because I can turn it into web browser version for you which will come with the plugin you need for your browser. Check back on this thread in about 15-20 minutes.

    I got a few requests from MAC users who aren't able to view the PC version of what I posted.

    Here's the version for MAC users - open the link in your web browser. The .jar plugin is provided.

    wow, that is a great way to show the trainroom. Thanks. How did you do that, what kind of software?, any special camera, or will any digital camera be able to do that with the rigth software?

    Tileguy, yes those are Duluth Missabe & Iron Range locos. I am in Minnesota.

    jkristia I took several pictures in my train room and then used a program called PixMaker (http://www.pixaround.com/) to stitch them all together into a panoramic view.

    That's a great way to show your layout Jas. What program did you use to create it?

    Great presentation.

    I will rephrase Bob's question though... What do all those loco's pull? Or do they run around just MU'ed together...?!?

    I don't have any rolling stock. I model power transfers....

    LOL.. just kidding

    I have 43 locos and 200 rolling stock, a lot of it just isn't visible on the pictures I posted. Some of my rolling stock you can see in the laundry room section of the tour.

    Matthyro, I took several pictures in my train room and then used a program called PixMaker (http://www.pixaround.com/) to stitch them all together into a panoramic view.
