    jeffrey-wimberl,
    I do believe you've made a breakthrough with your pictures. These last couple have shown a dramatic difference in quality. Keep experimenting... your making progress.

    Such a disappointment to see historic equipment of the steam era just rusting away!

    Actualy, that engine could've just been brown before it was retired to the abandoned siding, ya know...:mrgreen: All ya need to do is get some new domes, probably a new boiler, and fix all of the other obviously-broken-and/or missing- parts:mrgreen:

    A local freight was coming through today, so I had the chance to take a picture.

    Kurt - It's always great to see a shot of your layout with all of those little details that make all the difference. The electrical boxes, switches, weeds, and I swear those are real green glass insulators on those telephone poles. But I really like that other set of tracks that end at the tree..forgotten and seldom used - but you see something like that everywhere.

    Herc, glad you liked my pic :wave:. The isolators are painted metallic green – some very good advice from Wayne, as usual :thumb:. You like those abandoned, overgrown tracks too? Somehow they always attracted me.

    Jeffrey, I do like the way your pics are looking! That old rusting steamer is such a nice scene.

    Finally back together

    For the first time in over a month, the train room is back together. The N scale layout was at the County Fair, a ceiling fan was added, and the walls painted blue. It is nice to be back in the room, and with the fans, it is quite a bit cooler in there.
