    Thats about as far as my CSX and BNSF stuff goes, but i do have 2 new locomotives, an AEM7 and an SD80MAC

    First, another picture of the local. my nice bight light has blown, so i'll need to get a new light sometime. sorry for the darkness!

    [​IMG]


    My AEM7. the usceniced portion is a tough spot for me, because i can't really decide what to do there. Now it looks like my road birdge will take up most of that corner. In addition, when i add the Catenary wires, i wanted the transmission towers to be semi hooked up with the igh tension power lines for a little bit, but i don't know if there is sapce or realistic clearance for it. It might just be a water tower (to the left where the picture ends) there and stuff.

    My SD80MAC is way to big for this layout! oh well, it looks cool!

    Looking at the pictures where the edge of your layout is exposed, "I knew it! The world is flat! And remarkably thin ..." ;)

    Nice stuff. The stats junky in me wants to see a map of your layout and some 'overview' pictures - but I bet it looks a bit like a construction zone at this point.

    Good stuff, always fun to see others' projects. You have a really colorful roster of locos.

    lol, thats the NJT's selling point. Passengers pay big bucks to speed safely along the end of the world and look over the edge!!! sign1



    lol, everything involving me looks like a construction zone, which is why you need hard hats to enter my room, but thats another story....:rolleyes: I'll need to buy some fascia or atleast attach some construction paper some times to the ends of my layout. I do have a few overview shots, but they aren't that great. Its still a work in progress, but i cheat by trying to creatively edit my pictures so you can't see most of stuff. Unfortuneatley, i haven't been able to use the other computer in the house with the good picture editing, so i'm stuck with the ends showing, lol.

    Thanks for your comments!

    Excellent shots GEC, I have a question if I may, who is the supplier of those Protech Plastics bins/silos? Are they the Walthers ones that you cut? They sure look like ones that I am a'needin' :thumb:

    They are in deed! Here are some pictures of it, They are pretty straight forward. The kit is built like it is on the box, except for a small connector in the middle of the loading pipes.

    Very impressive. Progressing nicely! you spoke of a construction zone, I completely understand that one when working on the layout. A buddy of mine had most of his room taken up by a layout we were building, and I don't think there was more than 5 minutes between us finishing cleaning and it being back to its original state! heh. But keep 'em coming, looking great!
