    I'll start it this week, I hope no one else has done one!

    Ever since I built Mooreway's house, he has been very happy that he can go in his backyard and take pictures of trains!

    Scott...I love that section of your layout!:thumb:...heck, I love the whole thing!!!:winker:

    Speaking of houses...

    Kurt sent me one of his scratch-built houses in "kit" form....for those of you who missed this little gem here it is:

    http://forum.zealot.com/t151596/

    He did all the cutting and test fitting. He even partially built the porch in 3 sections for easy installation :winker:.

    I glued it all together, painted it (and the bricks) and made the roof material and window shades. It was a fun joint-venture:thumb:

    Here's an interesting shot of the side of the roadbed.
    And the new LED signals they installed all along the line.
    CNR is double tracking the section between two current double track bits (or are they passing sidings?) The signals for this point, which is still a double to single track junction) used to be a couple of hundred yards behind me and were only 2 heads.

    Nice pics so far!

    Here is the beginning of my scenicking...
    pinky1.jpg

    Here we have a noticeable seam, which going to be a road. I just wanted to see if I could "grass" it down. Nope. Needed a road thru that area anyway.
    pinky2.jpg

    And here we have a little side by side action. Ok, posing, no action. I only have the passenger engines. No passenger cars yet. Gotta go slow, lest we bring down the wrath of the wife. But its ok, I got more scenicking to do before I am ready for 10 - 14 passenger cars! :p Gotta take it slow.

    Steve,

    Nice F3 and very nice butter knife! Your butter knife even has the steam generators. They are missing on my F9s, or so I was told by the rivet counter at my club.

    Did you add/paint any extra goodies to your engines? I am thinking of getting the Walther's F series Super Detail Kit but I need to keep my mind to building my mountain... can't get sidetracked.

    Steve - Great Job on the House! :thumb:

    TrainNut - Nice Engine! That is one big snowplow!

    Ralph - Great Scene! I love the bridge area! :thumb:

    David - LED Signals, wish I could get some of those for my layout!

    Deckroid - Good Job! Nice engines! :thumb:

    Steve - Nice engines! For a while I had a GP7 Northern Pacific running on the club layout. Will have to check and see if I took pictures of it. Northern Pacific had some great pain schemes. :thumb:

    Mooreway - good job on the shed, and on my houses! :thumb:

    Deano - Nice engine! I need to figure out how to put engineers into my engines. :thumb:

    chessie4155
    - Great Shot! I hope the engine was tied down and you had permission to be there! :mrgreen:

    Sarge 7 - Looks like a fun project! :cool:

    Kurt - My houses are laser-cut models that Mooreway designed. Great job on Steve's House, you have a gift with small lumber! Nice scene! I love that tree! Again your scene looks completely real. :thumb: How did you do your backdrop?

    Jeffrey Wimberly
    - Nice engine

    My trip to John Listerman's layout

    Great shots guys!:thumb:

    Last night I went over to my good friend John Listerman's layout, the Christianson, Cyanthian, and Thomason RR or the 'most famous part of the B&O coal operation (I can't remember what the latter was), which I allways LOVE going to! I also brought over my BL2, thinking it had DCC. It didn't, but I got to put it in a nice, dead track where it could just sit pretty:
    [​IMG]
    sticks out, doesn't it? John says that if the B&O historical society came over, seeing a C&O engine, much less one that had come AFTER 1953 (the last year most steam was active), would've killed him. Luckly, the guy didn't show upsign1.
    Here's a shot of on of the best seniced areas on his layout:
    [​IMG]
    Anything look odd to you?:mrgreen:
    Here's Lawson Milling Co. on of the coolest structures on John's layout, and ENTIRELY SCRATCHBUILT!!!!!:eek:
    [​IMG]
    Here's a Rio Grande car that met it's fate at the bottom of a cliff (this must've happened during or a bit after WWII because the layout is supposed to be mainly in W.V.)
    [​IMG]
    I also got to drive a train of empties to Horde Mine, led by a 2-8-0. Here it is going under a bridge...
    [​IMG]
    ...and over another!

    Tell the "rivet counter" to go count some rivets........I saw some in the middle of the highway (good place for him to start:mrgreen:)

    The butter knife is an F3 and the other is an F7. I did not add the details however, as these engines were a thank you gift from a fellow member of this forum. He probably wouldn't want me to mention his name so I won't..........................Deano....................Anyway this anonymous person added a lot of "extra goodies" such as:
    decals, sunshades, rearview mirrors, firecracker antenna, f unit style coupler cut bars, MU socket, roof grabs above the front windshield, nose grabs on the F7, hoses, F7 and F3 designation plates. He also added decoders and dcc compatible lights and weathered the lower sections on both units. Oh yeah...he threw in a couple of custom weathered boxcars. To this day, I still look at all that and can't believe the quality of the work....and the man:thumb:.

    He got the rocks....I got the trains......I got the better of it:oops:
