    I'm using a DigiTrax Super Empire Builder, but hopefully, I'll get a Super Chief for Christmas! Then my Empire builder will be a booster.

    Here is a load of drywall I just made, with an idea from an old issue of 'N scale Magazine'. It is MDF wrapped in a heavy white plastic bag. I still have to make some tie downs for them. This will give the wall board plant on the layout a bit of traffic now.

    There is a big bridge construction project down the Crowsnest Pass, on the Southern Alberta Rail line, I saw some huge steel beams at Golden today, take a look. ( they still have to be weathered, but the LHS was all out of rust!)

    UNBELIEVABLE! REMARKABLE! INSPIRING! D*MN I'm SPEECHLESS! Nothing more to say about such a FANTASTIC Layout! I'm still flabbergasted at the workmanship put into this layout, by one Remarkable guy! I can't believe it!

    GREAT JOB! keep posting! This is going down in my history book!

    I took this picture of a short ballast train just going into Field today. I guess it's time to start ballasting parts of the Laggan Sub!

    All I have to say, is that your layout is unreal. I have looked at this thread over and over..... and it sure inspires me to work on my layout. I have friends that aren't even into model railroading and they spend the hours going through the thread and are jsut amazed. I used to live in Calgary and moved back home to Winnipeg, but hopefully someday I make it back to Calgary and would love to see the layout in person.

    One quesiton: What size of beam is that on the flat cars and where did you get them, I have a steel service centre on my layout as I work for a steel company here in Winnipeg.

    Once again look forward to more picture.
