    New layout

    Mike,

    The layout is looking great. Love the trestle nestled in the mountains. A really dramatic appearance.

    I still have the Mesilla Valley anniversary envelope. I haven't gotten around to mailing it yet. Welcome to Procrastination Station! LOL

    I heard rumors that the A & T and ACT are comtemplating a merger, lines meeting somewhere just west of El Paso. Oh ya, maybe Rosa's Cantina! LOL

    Ore Car

    This is 1 of the 5 draw-bared 26' ore cars I lettered and will run back and forth to the mine under the mountain trestle.
    Thanks Guys

    Amazing progress, you must have lot's of free time or you do work very fast, in any case it's quality work.

    Your Progress

    Fifer,

    I just had to say the latest pics are REALLY something! Marc Gast mentioned a merger - we'd have to go through a time continuum to accomplish that, but what the heck. :D

    Top View

    This is an aireal view. The double track bridge goes into the station and yard , while the long single track goes to the engine facility. The small single track is the main line around the lake.

    Hey Marc

    A little more water up there and we would have a river right now.
    The Rio Grande is a dune buggy strip now. I hope it snows like heck in Colo. this winter.
