    Great pictures and workmanship!!!!!!!!!!

    Can't wait for my track and road bed to get here so I can at least run a train or two. I really doubt I have the talent to turn out something like that.

    Neat pics . :thumb:
    As Steamhead says " nice railroady look" but I get the impression that 8017 has not been earning her keep lately though !!
    Do I see the base of one of those new fangled wind power generators in one pic, that are causing big rows :curse: and media attentionannounce1 in my local area of the UK ?:)

    I hope to put some pics of my layout progress on The Gauge soon.

    I love the idea of the old caboose for a yard office. (If that is what it is...) I plan on using the same idea on my own layout.

    Somebody please clean the webs off of that poor engine please!!! LOL!

    I was born and raised in Iowa. I swear that little town of yours looks like every Iowa town along Highway 34 and Southern Iowa...... Nice work! :)
