    With my recent purchase of a digital cam, and the rewards of instant gratification :D , I was playing around today with some rolling stock on a very poorly ballasted section of track (my first attempt)...the weathering was done by someone else. The building is one of those Bachmann buildings that they seemed to be giving away last year...my 7yr old painted it...

    Next I was having some fun with my son's Micro-machines...military vehicles...on an ICG flat car, with the ATLAS "911" caboose...the VERY unfinished building behind it is a DPM kit...of course one could always use their imagination...and say it is in the process of demoliltion!!

    Ralph they're getting cheaper by the day....I got a 6.3mp Fuji for $466.00. The equipment is just getting better and worth the jump to digital with the prices steadily falling.

    What mistakes are you talking about Mike? ... They all look jolly good to me!
    Got any more? I'd love to see them.

    Some more taken the same day...as you can see, I was just doing some experimenting...with the macro feature ...It worked too good...leaving problems with depth of field..
