    It's the end of the year, so a good time to take stock in where we're at. Here's some updated photos of my layout that I took today.

    I plan to have some light manufacturing (Owosso Furniture Manufacturing) on the end of the peninsula between the two sets of tracks (opposite the engine service facility on the other end of the peninsula).

    I need to get busy laying track in the ALCOA industrial area on the other wall now, but been holding off until I get the majority of structures built that will go over there so I'll know where to lay the track.

    Hi Eddie,
    That looks a real fine layout in the making, lets see more photos of work in progress.Nice idea to have a swingout bridge to get from one area to another.

    Thanks, guys. It's a work in progress, but slowly it's starting to take shape.

    I'm using Digitrax Super Chief for DCC control. I have the DT400 throttle and also a UT-1 throttle for guest use. I've got 4 jacks around the layout so I can move about.

    I've got some more pics on my website link in my sig below. I'm going to try to put up some more in the next few days while I'm off.
