    The thread was a nice step by step illustration of layout construction even if the layout is being dismantled. Best wishes on your new concept!

    I like the way this looks so far. Can't wait to see what you come up with for the next rendition. I myself am still only on my first layout, and not too far into it either. Plan on using this one as mainly a learning experience so I know what to bring to the table next time around. So far it's coming along pretty nicely. I'll have to post pics one of these days

    Did have a nice layout going there.
    Of course..The best made plans, are the ones that are made after the best made plans.

    No kits I used woodland scenic rock molds painfully layered ontop of each other and everyother one I'd put on I'd give it a good push to crack it you get a real nice effect that way

    Wickman,

    It was fun to see your images, and how some look like my work... and some do not. Like that track with a train running over it that you have temporarily shimmed up. That could be at my house!
