    You should enter those in Model Railroaders photo contest. I think you'd stand a good chance!:thumb:

    Kyle, two very nice and timely photographs. The first settles my question on the hump yard entrance with perhaps a ladder design for the yard exit.

    The second photograph was also very timely as I have been looking for a diorama scene for my FSM Baily's Produce rather than mounting it on a flat board/foam and throwing some grass on top. That scene has some character to it.

    Regards,

    Thanks for the kind words everybody. When someone posts a photo, I like to try to give feedback (not always possible), so thanks for taking the time with these. Trent, I'm very happy this was timely for you. Hopefully you can post a pic of Baily's when it's done.

    Here's one more, but I'm looking for a proto photo to justify these rooms for rent right over the track!

    Those are BEAUTIFUL pictures Kyle. I agree with the others, you should enter them in model railroader, they are FANTASIC shots. How did you do the lighting in the first one? Is it natural sun light?

    I agree: nice "mood" to the pictures. However, as much as I like trains, I'd have to pass on the rooms to rent: can't imagine coming home with an armload of groceries, or after a night on the town and having to climb the ladder to get to the front door. :D And I wouldn't even care to contemplate a hangover with a 1:1 switching layout in the basement! :D :D

    Thanks all....

    I don't know about you, but feedback is important to me. Model Railroader has a contest? Does anyone know if this is currently on? How does one enter? I would enter.

    That light in the first pic is from a single 400 watt bulb. It appears hazy because the camera captured it's relection the dorm mirrors I have mounted around for backdrops.

    Here is a wide shot showing those mirrors.
