    lol yeah, but its tough to run! the HO track is un-even because of the floor, and my passenger cars randomly uncouple. So much for push pull operations! sadly i have to tear it down tonight to make room for the presents.

    the O-27 in the middle has its usual hang ups (tublar pin rail pulls apart to easily.

    I do have a few videos, but none are that good. I better make a nice one before i take it all down!

    I love those DD40s! Never even heard of them til just a few months ago.

    Deano, I would like to see what you would do with an actual layout, like a 4x8 even. I like your switching layout, and you have a cool idea with this small diorama base you have too, but I want to see you build something bigger too (I guess your dad's layout counts, thats cool too). Speaking of which, have any recent pics of you dad's layout?

    THANKS STEVEN!:D i have had several layouts:thumb:, and would like another big one again. sure my current 30''x8' switching layout is fine, but i really miss having a "railfanning" layout, you know, so i can watch the trains run continuously through the scenery. i have thought how i could achieve this at my current place, but unless i get rid of my bed:rolleyes:, it just wont happen here:(.

    i have been making some progress on dads layout, and have finished his engine:thumb:, no pics though:oops:, hope to have some new pics up this week;). THANKS!:D -Deano
