    You did a good job replicating that curve in Caliente. Here is a photograph of the same curve on the San Diego Model Railroad museums HO layout.

    That desert scenery reminds me of my days in the army at Barstow,CA. Nice job of recreating the desert.

    Hi Eugen,

    Could I have a bit more detail on the Woodland Scenics you used? I've been looking for stuff just like yours!

    Thanks,

    Funny. Actually, your model work speaks for itself.:thumb:

    If it's any consolation, your English is better than my Swiss, or German, or Italian, or...:D

    Hey Eugen, I just took a closer look at your layout pictures in the link and I have a question:

    Were did you get the trucks on your layout and who makes them?? Some of the one's im talking about are: the yellow for cab, yellow cabover, XTRA trailers, yellow flatbed trailer with the bulldozer, gravel truck, and the other trailers and trucks you have.

    I need to get some trucks for my new N-Scale layout. I hope you don't mind that im asking these questions.
