    The layout's right around 16 feet long but only 14 inches wide between the 22 inch dog-bone ends. Not ideal layout dimensions...but that's all I have to work with. The trick will be to add scenery that makes it look right.

    Hey Ralph, your newly updated barge scene also appears to have much better lighting too! It doesn't look as dark and depressing anymore (no offense meant if you take any).

    All my bits and kits are OO/1:76, so I have to scratch build a layout to go with this brand new HO scale De Witt Clinton. I'll start a build thread in a few weeks, hopefully.

    A note to Ralph.

    I am sorry that your barge scene doesn't look as dark and depessing as it once did.:eek:

    Man, who turned on the lights?(!)

    No offense taken. Its a happier barge! :mrgreen:

    Its really all about the new camera. I haven't made any change in room lighting and the sun hasn't been shining anymore brightly in Kings Port. :)

    Ralph, It took me quite a while before I realized that barge pic wasn't real! Keep up the good work!
