    A Penn Central freight led by a Geep in a transitional paint scheme rolls through the grade crosing at West Mill. This town has been newly located on the layout. It used to be on the other side with buildings in front of tracks serving as a sort of view block. I like this typical small town look with track passing in front a lot better. Its never too late to make changes on a layout! :thumb:

    Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery (a gift from a friend), is on the left while Susan's Quilts, Mussachia's Italian restaurant, and Mea Cuppa coffee shop are to the right.

    Nice scene, Ralph: it reminds me of a town on the Susquehanna River, although it's been a long time since I was there. It might've been Sunbury, but I can't recall for certain. Anyway, it reminds me of a place in Pennsylvania that I've been, so in my opinion, you got it right.
