    Beautiful pics, Brian. Thanks for posting them here.

    Wow, have a look at the turnout in the second pic! I just thought, when you handlay a turnout this way on a model layout, you'll have nothing but derailments! Such a hump, and on the diverging track, too... :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Since the full size railroads are a little heavier than our models they hug the rails much better. Sometimes I think our stuff could also use a little more weight... :D :D :D
