    Here are a few pictures of my KR&T layout. They are not very good as they were taken with one of those throw away camaras. The one's you buy, snap your photo and take the camara in for developing.

    This one is of the trestle I made

    What happened? No pict. Will try again

    Nice work Dick!:cool:
    That control panel is awesome looking! (wiring scares me to death! :eek: :rolleyes: :D )
    Is that Daylight being pulled by one of those Con-Cor PA's?

    That's a nice looking trestle! And I really like that control panel! Great work!

    What is it with thumbs, anyway? Do we not give them enough attention that they have to try to be in every shot? :)

    Thanks everybody.
    Would you believe that Daylight is being pulled by a Life Like made in China. I have had it over a year and all bad publicity about the older Life Like's, this engine is one of the best I have. runs smooth either slow or fast.

    I don't know what's is with thumbs!!!

    I started this layout in October after tearing down the old one before Christmas a year ago.

    I don't see any thing wrong with your pictures at all. All I see are train's and thats all that matters.

    you've got a great start going.

    NICE LAYOUT

    Although I'm in HO, I recognize good modeling when I see it. The trestle looks good.

    The control panel looks awesome; however, couldn't you at least tangle up those wires a little more. Looks like my type of work.

    Tongue in Cheek.

    No really, great work and wish you luck. Dont worry about what you shoot with, but instead the subject that you shoot.

    Mike

    Thanks MIke and Gavin. The lid is closed but I will have to open it later to wire up some more track and switches. It will probable look worse when I am finished
