    Round house area. The roundhouse is scratch built.

    These were taken with a cheeeep Dig camera and it does not take good close ups. This is the west arm of the layout. Will post pictures of the east side shortly.

    Thanks Tyson. Would you believe that Round house is made of "cardboard"?. Kleenex boxes to be exact.

    Your Yards

    Clerk,
    Looking Good! Very busy place, I can smell the diesel oil. Nice roundhouse, is that a 24/7 operation? I've heard it takes a lot to keep those "Geeps" out on the main. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    You can see that some of the engines are painted green and silver. That is the K R & T colors. I don't have a camera that can take close ups so I can't photograph them.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    This is almost a 24/7 operation.
    I am in process of finishing up ballisting the double main tracks.

    Thanks everybody.

    Chris. Sandy doesn't care how much time I spend on the layout as long as I get the dishes done, Clothes washed. kitchen cleaned up. You get the drift.
