    I always check the Photo-fun weekly, the quality of the pictures is very good.
    Nice work everyone.

    I tried various arrangements for the structures on my micro layout , that was an easy job, no cutting, gluing, painting or soldering. My wife gave me some suggestions.
    I also cut and painted some masonite for the backdrop

    THANK YOU MARK!:mrgreen:
    THANKS for the info on the GP15 too!:thumb: i had seen them in the past, but thought they were Athearns:oops: , at that time i was modeling UP from 89-2006 so i wasn't interested in getting them:rolleyes: , but now, since i am modeling 1969-79, i had started looking for them, but no luck finding one:frowns: . Ebay just is NOT a choice i have:cry: (don't ask:curse: ), so it looks like I'll just keep looking at the shows:winki: .

    THANKS AGAIN MARK!:thumb::mrgreen:

    Deano,I will echo what Mark said..The only problem with the Chessie unit the walkways should be blue and not yellow.While this engine is in the "shop" for cleaning and servicing I will paint the walk ways either Enchantment Blue or Royal Blue.Chessie use both blues regardless of the road name on the cab.
    I like mine as a switcher since it has a slow speed and pulls quite well.I can work a 25 car cut with ease...These are stock weight cars and not RP20.1 weighted.
