    Hello all;

    It's been far to long and I apologize for being away for so long. I'm back with a new computer, new plumbing (ask me about the flood sometime:eek: ), good health and ...

    ::drum roll::

    A brand new web site for the layout!!

    It's been a long haul to get it done but it's up and working.

    Stop by and take a look I'd love to hear what you all think.

    You can find it here
    http://mysite.verizon.net/coyote97/Route66Railway/
    as well as in my signature below.

    I'll be looking over posts for the next few days and answering any left for me and sticking my schnoz in. I hope you all, your families and modeling are all doing well.

    Till later -
    Peace.

    THAT. WEBSITE. ROCKS!!!

    I build websites and can appreciate a great one when I see it, and that my friend is a great one.

    Looking forward to more progress photos of the layout, it's really coming along nicely.

    I built a website for a fellow modeler that oddly enough models the ATSF in Arizona about the same time frame, but it didn't come out half as nice as that one. www.trainweb.org/santafe

    Keep up the great work, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Thanks again for the compliments sir.

    Peace

    Jasbourre,

    Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed it. :)

    I used 3rd PlanIt to plan out and make up my track plans... you can find it at http://www.trackplanning.com/ it's not a very intuitive program... I think I spent 3 months just figuring it out but it was time well spent. I 'd never use any other program now.

    Peace.
