    I just noticed this question now. Sorry about the delay in responding. I used 2 different fonts, the L is from a font called Wilhelm Klingspoor Gottisch (that's quite a mouthful!!) and the rest of the name is in Fette Fraktur.

    While I am pleased with what I got done during the party it was still less than I hoped to achieve.
    Got the corkroadbed completed on the upper level but only got about half of the canyon done.
    The party idea sure gets one going.
    Thanks guys

    I am pretty disappointed with what I got done. The major thing I wanted to achieve was to get the rest of the benchwork done, along with tracklaying in the new yard that would be created.

    Unfortunately, due to a financial snag, I was unable to accomplish this.

    Instead, I spent my time detailing existing buildings and kitbashing a mansard roof. I was quite pleased with how these projects went, but when you consider that's all I got done in 6 weeks, and that even that is not finished yet.....well..... I feel I could have done a lot better.

    Well, first, I'd like to thank Catt for helping me through this most difficult time in my life... You were a big help in "covering" for me on the "party". I owe ya one!! :D :thumb: :D :thumb:

    For those of you that don't know, My closest Friend had a stroke on Jan 19th & I spent the Spare time that was supposed to go toward the party & the Trestle Bridge from hell, visiting with him in the hospital for 3 weels straight. Until we all knew that he would pull through. I am happy to report that he is home in a wheelchair, but he is doing great!!!!

    Now, the other important stuff!! :D :D He said that I should at least try to get some "bridgwork" done while I had the chance and while i didn't finish it, i got this far :) :) :) :) :)

    I have the rear part of the "unstained Trunion" to build. as well as 4 more bents. Then it will be done.. should be about 2-3 weeks :)

    I would probably have completed it. Take note of "The gauge Crate" hiding on the right :) as well as the lionel O gauge signal I use for the removable bridge :) :) :)

    Hey mikey, it's a Philippine Carabou, unlike African Caribou, these are like water buffalo. They are used as tractors, transportation and suppliers of milk and cheese.
