    Looks like the fellers have slipped out to the loading dock for a quick game of checkers before unloading the boxcar on the siding. They better hope the boss man don't come around any time soon.

    It's details like this that this hobby is all about, IMHO.

    Hats off, Eddie... You didn't need to give it a little intro - the picture speaks for itself! Great work!

    Eddie, we all know that these two guy shouldn't be playing at all - and at once we begin to look for the boss coming around the corner... :eek: :eek:

    It's those mini-scenes which bring a layout really to life. And if there's a little humor or suspense involved, then it's all the better!

    A great little scene, Eddie. BTW: IS there a boss lurking around somewhere? :D

    Thanks for all the kind words, guys. I think I need to put the boss coming around the corner now to break up the game and get these guys busy on that boxcar.

    Hi Eddie, Just finished looking at your website, excellent. I like the photos of the layout under construction, and the photos of your layout a great also.
