    Ray,

    The photo of your intermodal terminal reminded me of my own (see photo attached).

    My "concrete" apron is made of sheet styrene laid over 5mm balsa sheet, then painted grey. I MUST get around to weathering this area!

    PS - this is my FIRST post to this group. I hope I have done it right and haven't broken any rules.

    Hmmm ... well that worked okay. Except I note I'm listed as a "Junior" Member. Not sure how to change that, but at 47 years old I think I am too "long in the tooth" for that label!!

    Here's a ground view of my intermodal terminal.

    Gavin, after looking at your pictures and checking out your website, I must say you are a master of whatever you do. Spent some time in your beautiful country some years ago, LOVED IT.

    Ray,

    First, I am totally blown away by the sheer size of your layout and impressed with the collection of motive power and rolling stock. Your photo shoot here could easily be a guide to model railroading.

    Now, for those of us who are completely overwhelmed by this "empire" could you give us what your "typical operating session" entails. I.e. how many of those 250+ machines do you run at a time? What do they haul? What are you using for your electronics, DCC, DC? How many operators? etc.???

    It is really a great layout.:)
