    The layout is looking very good, I like the yard area that you have created with easy access.:thumb:

    Mike,

    It's simple, trainic77.com. How's that for originality? Not a very good website, but a good place to show pictures!

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Mike,
    I have to admit your layout is my inspiration. Your track plan fit the space I have to work with perfectly. I hope you don't mind? Thanks,

    Here is an extension I did yesterday to my Turntable area. I moved the fascia out about 5" and filled it in and place some new trackage in this area.

    Fifer, great work! Just a quick question, what kind of plaster did you use for mountains?

    Mike,

    The McDonald's on your layout takes me back to the early 60's when I would frequent that local establishment in my town and the burgers were about $00.15 each and with Cheese $00.19, (the good old days).

    Yep , we had one too when I was real little. We also had a place called Griff's but I guess they feel by the wayside.

    Here is the newest work for the ACTRR. This weekend I built a Bar Mills Banks Icing Platform.
    I still need to add roofs and paint he whole thing.
    You can also see the silo's to the Walthers ADM grain elevator that I split in two and primed for sanding.
    The icing platform will go near the depot on that same side of the yard.
