    Well, as usual, we're getting some good entries, it isn't any reason not to enter though. Some people win more than others. Some, like myself, win once in a blue moon or not at all.:rolleyes: But we enter anyway, just because if we don't enter, we are guanteed not to win.:cry: If we try and don't win, we at least tried, and we got to show off a bit in the process.:wave: And that's what it's all about isn't it?:thumb:

    Yeah Ben, I know that's why you said what you did, but I didn't want anyone to get the idea that it's not worth entering either. :D:D:D:D The bar is set petty high but like you say, it's fun regardless...:wave::wave::wave::wave:

    Kinda like betting your poker hand, knowing that you're beat, but you bet it anyway.... all in the name of fun..:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Dan,

    Not entirely sure, but I am guessing that Ben (Union Pacific) wants a "how-to" thread. You can start it in the Photog/Scenery forum if you wish. There is also the Tips & Tricks forum if you think that is more appropriate.

    Dan, your landscape is simply great! :thumb: :thumb:
    Hey c'mon, guys and gals - show your pics, even if you can't offer such spectacular cliffs like Dan's. After all - to participate is the real fun of the game!

    Since I don't have any scenery on my layout at the moment (still laying track) I dug out an old photograph from my N scale layout. Lo and behold - it is 32 years old! :eek: :eek: :eek: (See, Gary, I beat you by a full 20 years :rolleyes: ;) )

    That's the way scenery was done back in the '70s: Zip texturing on the rocks, raw and colored lichen for shrubbery (no Woodland Scenic foam around then!) - and a handmade tunnel portal.

    This is no winner for sure, but I'm showing it off anyway! :D :D :D

    Ron
