With limited space and being my first layout I wanted to kep things a bit simple.. that and those darn turnouts cost some money when you have a huge yard. I wanted to have concrete because I figured I could maybe switch it to intermodel easier if I so decide in the future. besides it is my story and I can change it if I want.. .. the R.R. company decided to just leave it a small yard But anyways here it is... after the joint compound sets for a few more days I think I will touch up the paint job... I was in a hurry due to excitement..
