    Mike,

    That looks great. I really like the chain-link fences.

    Just wait 'til the tourists show up and mess up your pretty lawns with newspapers, soda cans and other trash.

    Keep posting progress pictures...

    Mike that looks great. Any chance of getting you to post a few closeups of the station, it looks fantastic. Is it scratchbuilt as it looks so prototypical of the area? I was in Albuquerque and Santa Fe last year at a Navy reuion and being a staunch "New Englander" I admit to being charmed by the area.

    Mike, ditto what Bill said about the station - it looks great. You did a good job with the striping, too.

    Wow. Looks fantastic. Is that station a kit, or bash, or scratch?

    The whole layout looks like an operator's dream come true.

    Thanks Mike, the close ups look great. Never heard of Model Tech before, is this a local manufacturer with limited runs?

    Double Sweet!

    Your grounds crew sure do some fine work...
    ain't ever scene a lot that sharp, 'cept after a fresh tarring and striping.
    Then again... small towns tend to do that and it takes longer for things to dirty.
