    That's looking great Marty! I like the design of this scene in which trains will come from out of site around that curve and then disappear under the building.

    Nice to see your progress! It's looking great. And a sharp scheme too. That bridge in the distance looks nice. I look forward to seeing more as you go.

    I really like your railroad. I was out in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois a few years ago, following the old Erie tracks. Outside of the fact that most of the Erie was gone, I liked it out there.

    Hey Marty;

    This really is fantastic; I can't believe how quickly you were able to get that Main up and running. And very clean, well-joined benchwork and fascia. Very nice indeed; and, I like your choice of prototypes too!

    Jim :cool:

    That is BEAUTIFUL work, Marty!:) Really professional looking fascia and uncluttered trackwork.

    I sure hope you're proud of your handiwork. I know I would be...;)

    Marty, you're putting together a really nice layout. I love the way the curves flow. It looks like some very good trackwork.
