    Bug away, by all means! I really like the pictures, especially the rows of locos just waiting to hook up and go. It gives me a goal to aim for, especially with needing to have 200+ locomotives! :D

    The only thing we get tired of is people saying "I bet your getting tired of this." To make up for your grievious mistake of even thinking such a thing I as moderator of this forum sentence you to posting as many pictures of your layout as you can.:D :D Along with these pictures you must post (if you have one) "THE PLAN"!!(aka the trackplan)

    Ray,
    It looks like you ARE enjoying that "childhood"! Good for you! Number me among the others who have enjoyed seeing more pics of your layout. I'm thinking it deserves a magazine spread actually.

    I have to also add on to the positive comment list. The thing that impressed me the most besides the size of the yard and shop building was the actual ladder track at the shops. Very nice, in a way.....although I was only there once when I worked for the BNSF, It kind of has that Argentine Yard feel to it in Kansas City KS.

    My 3x7 I built with my kids pales to compare!

    Suggestion.....sends those picture to Kirk Reddie at N-Scale Railroading magazine.

    ROOM SIZE

    SHAMUS
    THE ROOM SIZE IS 19X39, THE LAYOUT IS 19X31. I GAVE THE REMAINING 8' TO MY WIFE, SHE IS INTO MINIATURES.
    ABOUT THE TRACKPLAN, IT'S WAS DONE IN PENCIL ON A 19X31" POSTERBOARD. IT'S NOW OVER 8 YEARS OLD, AND HAS MARKED ON OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER. IT NEEDS TO BE REDONE. MIGHT DO THAT.
