    Don't you just love it when you can say "i told you folks";) :p :mrgreen: msowson:wav: , THANKS for posting the pics!:up:

    i have a couple NEW shots taken last night on my NEW layout:up: ...well, the first shot is really just a pic of my GP7, not much scenery to be seen:119: . the second pic has my MP15DC pulling a box across the road. i still need to put the crossings up, and the road needs weathering badly:oops: .

    KEEP 'EM COMING FOLKS!:mrgreen: -Deano

    I'm very busy this week-end.
    1)My tracks are painted and soldered. I did some trials with the roadbed because I had to trim it. Then I tested the DAP caulking.

    After that I tested the DC wiring. My layout will heve 4 different sections.

    Then I brewed some Pale Ale

    That beer will be shipped from my brewery to all the thirsty members of "The Gauge" by the "Malt Pacific railroad" ( MPR ).

    Thanks for the info!

    Deano
    Cool locos! I really like the skewed grade crossing!

    Chessie4155
    Great shot!

    Biased Turkey
    Good progress on the track! I like your industry!

    Josh
    Good looking loco!

    Deano
    More neat looking locos!

    I thought by now I would have something posted, but no. I did a photo and video session last night. Uploaded the pictures and found the ones with the black loco and gondolas were out of focus.:evil: I uploaded the video. I did 3 runs. They looked great:-D but…. At the end of the first one you could hear the kids talking upstairs and the dogs barking, second one you could hear the TV upstairs, and on the third one you can hear the floor boards creaking as someone is walking right above the layout.hamr wall1

    My new road came out pretty good (can't tell from that angle though!), but I'm even happier with keeping my little people safe.

    We went down and checked on the Interchange Track and our efforts were rewarded.

    Thanks guys!

    I can't take credit for the CP gon. It is a friend's, who did the weathering, from another forum where I participate in a car interchange. We each send a car in the interchange. Over the time of the interchange we have the various cars of the participants visit our layouts and at the end you get your car back.

    It's good to see a fellow home brewer on the Guage. I have a Czech Pilsner and an ESB in the fermenters now.

    Thanks to all the members who encouraged me for the ( small ) progress on my layout an for the brew.
    It's a small progress but I find it a lot more enjoyable now to be able to control 2 engines on my layout using several electrical blocks, even if I cannot run both engines at the same time.
