    Seeing as Holloween is around the corner, why not some pumpkins, corn stalks, scarecrow, or something to that effect, if you can even do that so small

    Deano, that SD45T-2 sure looks good. :thumb: :thumb: I can't wait until I start gettong more engines so I can detail them all up too, they look so much more real when all those details go on.:thumb: :D

    Waldbahner, those are cool. I like the engineer poping out of the loco and the guy on the back of the tender. Nice touch:thumb: :thumb:

    Nice scene, Waldbahner, I wouldn't have guessed that it was N scale. That grass to the right is nice, and the trees are very nicely done.:thumb:

    Here's another one for ya Deano! MP15DC. I've probably seen this particular loco many times, and I do recognize the car behind it. This one is from Crystal Lake too, and again, not mine

    Here's a nice UP business train. I know I've seen one or two of these, but that was well over 10 years ago
