    I also added numbers to the rear of the tender.

    Next is some final weathering and the switcher should be done until I see something else.

    I took a few photos of the HO layout.
    I've been adding the base coat of paint and some dirt.

    This is an N scale Life/Like GP38-2 chassis I am modifying to fit under an old Atlas (Yugoslavia) GP40 shell.

    Thanks everyone.
    I made a little more progress. I extended the mountains in two of the corners and started working on the tunnel.

    This is the retaining wall and tunnel liner before I painted the roadbed and put the top on the mountain.

    I thought that I was finished for the layout party but an order that was going to get here next week came in a week earlier. I got more buildings for the city on Friday night. I finished 7 more building for the city. I still have seven more to paint and build. Here are pictures of what I was able to get done this weekend. [​IMG]

    This picture show how much more i have to go until I have the whole city done.

    This is the first layout party that I seen and have a few questions. What happens after it is over? Does everyone post like before and after pictures or just what they got done? When does the next layout party begin? I have a long way to go on the city that I started and there is no way I could get it all done in a week. I want to at least get the buildings weathered, wire put on the pole, and maybe the other seven kits painted and built by the end.

    We basically just compair notes & work, really informally... Then we take a break for a month & then post a poll for the beginning of the next one. :) So figure in a month or 2 - Due to the holidays - we will most likly start the next one in January :)

    You can keep working until then - just take pics & keep everyone informed of your work :) :)

    See ya!!!

    Well, it's been a loooooooong while since I've updated, so here goes.

    :) :) The trackwork I'd hoped to accomplish is done!! :) :)

    While the whole circuit isn't yet handlaid, it is all in place and trains run through the whole existing layout. This was completed a day before my model railroading uncle swung through town. It sure is nice to have a chance to stand back, and watch (and listen to) trains make their way around the layout. :thumb:
