Thank you I'd be happy to do a "play-by-play" photo shoot of the progress of my layout, but I would think you'd find it quite boring since I'm very new to the hobby. I'm just now learning the how to's about things like scenic construction and wouldn't want to burden you all with my amateur project. Thank you all once again for the kind welcome. It sure is nice to feel so welcome as a new modeller. Bud M.
