    Great place for a rail enthusiast, terrible place if you are a commuter late to work. I thought I would take advantage of some really intense natural sunlight and experiment with some shadow effects. Hope you enjoy them.

    The interlocking tower is a busy place as well as General Ship Repair...

    Here is a shot of the interlocking tower, as well as the small office and scrap area of the General Ship Repair co.

    Nice! that second photo in your second post looks great. The lens flare in the upper left makes it look even more realistic.

    Also the texture of the different siding materials on that tower look great! :thumb:

    Great pictures, Stuart, it was worthwhile waiting for them to show up again. I particularily like the fourth from last shot, the overview of the yard: I've been to places like this so many times, back when I used to chase trains before going in to work on the afternoon shift, or after a nightshift. It's also nice to see that MDC/Roundhouse structure in the last photo: these kits had so much neat stuff for scratchbuilding or kitbashing. I wish they'd re-release them.

    Thanks for all the nice feedback everybody. I had some computer issues the past couple of weeks and have been somewhat of a stranger on the forum, that didn't however stop me from getting some nice modeling done in the interim. Wayne, I agree, the tooling on those old MDC/Roundhouse kits were phenomenal. The brick detail on some of those kits rivaled the old Revell tooling that I have always admired on some of their long discontinued kits. I wonder what the chances of Roundhouse rereleasing some of those nice kits. Hmm, we will see. Anyhow, hope everyone has a great week.

    Thanks for the kind words UP and Trucklover. UP, those are just a few pics from my 8x2 {soon to be 12x2} Baltimore and Ohio switching layout. There are some other pics floating around here of it as well, but I try to post pretty frequently. Trucklover, I can relate to your point about being stuck at a crossing. Especially if you are running late for work! Thanks again for the kind words.
