    Holy cow Ray! Your layout looks like it may be club-sized and your track work is beautiful! Let me get on board with the rest in encouraging you to post more pics and info about it!

    Jesus!! That layout is impressive, alot of trains and a HUGE yard go great together. Now the only question that's boggling my mind is "What scale is it?".

    Again nice picture and great layout!

    details to your questions

    The layout is a mostly freelanced layout in "N" scale and depicts the BN RR's merger with the SF RR in 1995. The Ramko Division of the BSNF RR is based in Ramko Valley somewhere in the western U.S.

    Housed in a special built 20X40' building behind our home, the layout track covers 19'X31' with a large yard area, double track mainline and branch lines servicing various industrial areas. The layout is 100% operational with scenery well on it way.

    I do not have a web site but am thinking about it. Here is another picture and I will take more and post them.

    Thanks for all the positive comments.

    Just out of curiosity Ray, what's the count on your engine roster? Judging by the pictures, I'd wager you don't run into motive power shortages even during the busiest traffic seasons! :) I really like the look of those big engine facilities!

    loco count

    Ralph,

    My wife says I did not have a childhood, so in my retirement I'm having it now. I have approx. 250 locos, all KATO, ATLAS, and LL. Many I bought undecorated and painted myself.
