    It is amazing sometimes what shows up in layout photos. We can take all sorts of time setting up a shot, then when we see the pic, we suddenly notice some detail out of place that we moved to get a clear shot that we wanted!

    Havn't updated this thread in a little while, here are some things that I have done in the last couple of weeks.

    I have done so much stuff with the layout.
    • I now have 8 engines. I got some polly scale CNW Green paint and started painting the handrails on the 4 units.
    • I built and installed the Bulk Transfer Conveyor at the Hoffa Cement Complex.
    • I built and set the Tank Car Oil Loading Platforms in place and got the Track down and ballasted for the loading racks.
    • I built and set the Tank Truck Loading Rack in place and ballasted around it.
    • I added a wood fence to the front of the oil refinery area and added a gate.
    • I built the Guard Gate for the Oil and Flour Mill Complexes.
    • I glued some more track down; over by the Glacier Gravel Company and the New River Mining Company
    • I built the small extention for the Asphalt Complex that is over by the New River Mining Company and layed foam down. I also added a siding on the new extention.
    • I made some grade crossings for the main road over the main line over by Glacier Gravel Company.
    And working on some more stuff too.

    I don't have any pics at the moment[​IMG] [​IMG]but hope to have them soon.:thumb: :thumb:

    First off,

    :wave: Hi Rough Days and welcome to the Gauge

    Now to answer your question,

    It depends on how many you want to run, you have to get a DCC opperating system to run more trains at the same time. I would suggest visting the DCC forum on the Gauge and asking some questions there and looking for answers in the threads in that section.:thumb:

    Hope this helps :D

    Too funny, I was just about to update some of my threads here, but this was not one of them unfortanitly. I can only use the camera at my grandparents house at the moment and well, I only brought the new weathered trains that I have done in the last week. I wish that I could have brought the whole layout :cry: SORRY GUYS, NO NEW PICS OF MY LAYOUT AT THIS TIME, hopefuly soon though :D :D

    Check my weathered threads later today and tonite for pics.

    Some New Pics

    It isn't much but this thread is do for an update

    I did a tad bit more work on the Magic Pan Backery Complex today. I added another piece of track for the rail docks. The reason I have not just banned this siding out is because I need 2 more #4 switches and I have not been able to get them yet. So until then, there is just 2 small paralell tracks just sitting there out in the "middle of nowere" lol

    Here is the pics:

    [​IMG]

    Here is an overview shot of the complex in case you guys don't member what it looks like. There are 5 truck docks, 2 of which are occupied by a J.B. Hunt 53' trailer and a 53' Landstar trailer and the 3rd, a 53' Scneider National trailer is being pulled away. The 4th and 5th docks are empty and there are 6 28' pup trailers lined up in the back.

    View down the un-finished sidings

    More New Engines!!

    Today I got 2 CNW SD40-2's in the mail from Eric (Thoroughbreed) and I love them

    They are in the special Falcon Service Paint, here are some quick pics:

    [​IMG]

    Here is the powered unit (sorry for the BAD pics)

    [​IMG]

    Pic of the dummy unit, they were lashed up together with a CNW dash 9 on point so that is why this one is facing the rear. You can see a 65' tanker behind the unit to.

    Ill take some better pics when I weather them up :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
