    I have added text to the track plan to show where all the towns will be. The main towns will be Nanton and High River, with 2 grain elevators in Okatoks. There is a mine in Revelstoke, on the 2nd level.

    New idea

    I was up till 3:30 last night trying something, here is what I did, the front 4 tracks on the main yard will curve to the right making more room for an engine facility and intermodal yard. The boxes are makeshift buildings, and there might be an auto overpass over the yard also, just an idea!

    That is sure very impressive, SD90!
    Since there are so many Canadian railroad nuts already in this thread, can anyone tell me what this is? It wandered into Cheyenne, WY last week on UP's WB line to Sherman Hill.

    CN 2406

    That unit has the carbody CN developed, full width with the "Draper taper" just behind the cab door. The taper may be visible in the photos. It allows the crew some rearward vision without sticking heads out the window.

    No doubt about it, John as Kaslo Shops does excellent work. I have two of his products and I’m quiet happy with them.

    Here's what I did last week, I changed the mainline switches all to long ones, also got all the mainline laid, now there are just 3 sidings, the main yard and the staging yards left to do !

    I got the valence up yesterday, it's almost all finished, the pictures should look better now also, I read the manual for my camera! I think the best thing to do for lighting, is what I have done with the lower back right corner of this picture, full spectrum bulbs. I friend of mine told me that I would have to use them, but I thought I might be able to get around it, the proof is in pictures now! I'm going to finish some scenery on a small section, so I can see what it looks like with some green in the picture!

    WOW. Can I have your modelling budget? I'm sure you've been asked that a few times....
    N'credible!
    After finishing by backdrop, it amazes me howmuch more finished the layout looks, even without scenery, just bare rails!
