    I always love to see pictures of your layout, it is great :thumb:. Do you have a trackplan of your layout? I’d really like to see it.

    As a newbie, I just can say: Thanks for sharing your excellent work Art67.
    Nice track work ( painting, ballasting ) , nice weathering, nice ... everything.
    I used to go bicycling around the Montreal docks 30 years ago and your pics really give the impression of being in a real dock.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Lester, I am not a member of any club - It is just my 2 foot x 8 foot switching layout. It is built so that I can expand at either end. At the moment I am working on an extension {2ft x 4 ft } that will allow me to expand it to 2ft x 12 ft. In a way it is a modular layout insomuch that it allows me to easily move the layout if that becomes necessary, and to be able to add on at either end as space and time become available. However, there are no set track guidelines or standards in the classic sense of modular layout building. My main goal is to have easy access to all turnouts [handthrown], and ease of maintenance. I plan in the future to have most of the add-ons a depth of 18 inches or so, so that each scene will have more of a trackside feel to it when photographing the layout. Thanks again for everyones feedback.

    Nice work, Stuart, it's always a pleasure to see your views down by the docks: even moreso now that, for some reason, my computer monitor has decided to allow me to view the usually missing red component of the various colours.:)

    Depends on the weather :) , although I've seen black, or brown. Most of the time, everything has a greenish cast to it. I thought that all of my photos had that "fluorescent glow" about them, until I saw one on my daughters monitor. When I get time, I'm going to buy a new computer, as this one will not run the software that would allow me to download pictures from my new camera.
