    Nice layout. Overall colours look a bit bright to me (especially given the large 'soccer pitch' in the middle and the autumn tree colours. Any plans for the big green field in the middle?

    Great start. Looks like you have a lot of space to do some good things with. Keep up posted on your progress.

    Not positive on the center space. I was thinking about adding a 3 bay rolling stock "garage" building. Then maybe just adding a water feature like a pond and stream. Over the next month I plan on cleaning things up and doing some blending of colors to break things up a bit. Thanks for the comments and any advice is appreciated.

    Just some random ideas from the top of my head: For the middle part a low, densely wooded hill, with a road running over it might be a nice feature functioning as a scenic divider. A nice busy railyard on the foreground, and maybe a little road winding to a tiny settlement on the top of the large hill on the background. Adding more colour will definately give it a more life-like appearance.

    I'd love to see the pictures. All I see is a square box with and X in it. Can someone tell me what this means or how to get the pictures to show up? Thanks

    I'm not even getting the red X. :curse:

    Floyd: red X usually means that the pictures are not accessible. Can be that the server they are on is not available, that the server won't talk to theGauge or Zealot or that they've been deleted. Also happens when someone new to the forum tries to link to pix that are located on his personal computer. May also happen if your server filters them out for some reason. wall1
