    Most of my trucks are plastic kits from Promotex, Walthers, A-line, Trucks N' Stuff, Atlas and Athearn. But ya I do have some diecast one's, The Norscot Construction (most important of them all), and Model Power and a couple are Matchbox and Hotwheels. Those last 2 are a little out of scale but they work.

    :wave: Hi Tom,

    Thats a pretty nice layout you got there.

    I see that we both like a busy layout.

    Hope your recovery is going well Chuck.
    I've been making a little progress on some of my projects.

    It is the start of the monsoon, it's hot and humid in the mornings with afternoon thunder storms. We have a few wildfires burning in the area started by the storms.
    Wiring up that DCC system sounds like fun Lynn. Should be nice when it's done though.
    Nice to see photos of your layout again Tom.

    Afternoon all. Early Church, Sunday School, checked the pond and then to a big buffet with some friends. Ate the whole thing. :D Came in and napped. Now getting to computer. Think I will run trains this PM. Mow again tomorrow and get ready for our big 4th hot dogs and hamburgers. Later.

    When I posted on this thread I thought the last post was a year ago. Now I can see it is 103 pages strong! Wow this is great. I don't often go for the Bay for train stuff but this was from a near by store in my state. They don't fit in with MTH sized buildings so I put the Lionel at one end of the layout. The Stations look and work great. I had them as a kid but my Dad made the misteak of also giving me a BB rifle. So the trains and buildings took a beating. Getting the old stations back was like a second chance......
