    Welcome to the Gauge, VanBee. :welcome1: Not only a good-looking factory, but also an effective use of your backdrop. Nicely done. :thumb:

    I agree! Clever use of the photo in the background! Nice scene with the building and yard.

    Here's a passenger car I just converted to narrow gauge. It still needs some window glass and a little undercarriage weathering, but otherwise done. The lettering was done on my printer.

    Charlie I know how you feel, I'm an old grey beard too! Todays railroading isn't anything like the good old days.. My youngest son will turn 20 next month and is still into trains. I also have a 3 year old grandson that can't get enough trains!

    Thanks for the kind replies all.
    Not too many pictures of finished sections of my layout I'm afraid. Most of it is still in the construction phase but I can at least run trains. Trying to finish the yard section first and then move on. I find it all a little overwhelming if you try to do all the track work first. Especially since I make all my own switches. Have added some pictures of that process and an overview of most of the yard.
