    Dean, I saw the Metra too while in chicago earlier this month. I sure enjoyed watching them roll by! I have to say that I like their choice of colors! :)

    As usual, the quality of all those weekly fun pics is very high.
    If I had to select one picture I would pick the downtown scene from chessie4155.

    Nice ceiling Wayne :)

    Hi, Bryant, and :welcome1: to the Gauge.

    Thanks, Jacques. :-D As you can see, I haven't had time to weather it yet, but I've never been shy about showing my "works in progress". ;) I am rather proud of my "lumber-in-an-opening-in-the-sky clouds, though. :razz:

    Dean,

    I hadn't realized you were in Chicago that weekend or I would have met you at the museum layout! Ah well, missed opportunity! Did you take any pics of the layout? Mine are on the dark side.

    I saw a Metra rolling over a highway bridge as we taxied back to O'Hare. It was really moving!
