    Overall Of Dads Layout

    well folks, its Saturday, and we all know i go work on dads layout on Saturdays:thumb: . i am sorry to say dad is really not doing to good now:( , his shaking has been getting ALOT worse, and today when i got there at 11:30, ma was getting ready to take him to the ER:( . he has had a REAL BAD case of bronchitis, and hasn't been able to shake it for some time now:( . i was just going to go back home, but dad INSISTED i stay and get some work done on the layout. they got back at 6:00, and we spent an hour with the layout before he went to bed. dad hasn't been able to model much in the last two years, but still enjoys running trains:thumb: , and i think he enjoys the time we spend together on Saturdays:) . today i got all the ground cover done except a 1'x2' area, ran out of glue:oops::rolleyes: . worked on the town a little too:thumb: . only three of the buildings on his layout are mine, all the rest of them he made from previous layouts he had(dads a packrat). i mention dads layout alot, so i thought i would show you folks some "overall" pics of it:thumb: . the track plan really is just a dogbone, with 2 passing sidings, a ton of industry spurs, some engine holding tracks and a small yard. i REALLY hate to show these pics as the layout is SO FAR FROM COMPLETION, it ain't even funny, but these will give you an idea of what its like:thumb: . NOTHING is finished, needs backdrops,trees,ballasting, oh cripes, it needs IT ALL:oops: . the pics start at one end and follows around to the other. :) -Deano View attachment 29730 View attachment 29731 View attachment 29732 View attachment 29733 View attachment 29734
