    Well, this weekend, I got a bargain at a Train Show, (Greenberg's in Phila, PA)

    I bought a G switch & 12 lengths of track for $35.00 (normally $63.00)

    When I got home, I started designing :) I needed a bridge to give access to Carolton Junction (my yard & Engine house) so I decided to build a bridge.....

    I started with this:

    Then added the switch & track:

    Then built the bridge:

    Since it's a logging area - It was built out of logs :) and it gives the Hobos a place to hide too :D :D

    They are right behind the far bent - in the cave :) Here's the close up:

    I was looking at a great g scale at a garden centre in Vancouver , when my friend sends me the pictures I will post them.
    The cost for the size was not to bad.

    Nice stuff Mikey, I am impressed with the scale.
