    Okay Shamus, I have you figured out now my friend. You've managed to build a time machine, in which you go back, take a few photos, and then tell us they're models! :D :D :D :D :D

    cheers

    RE:

    Yes Shamus...I'd like to see you get some photos of natural rain to scale coming down. That's the only way you could make this look more life like.

    When your working on it I hope you are wearing rubber gloves, so you don't get into the poison ivy!

    My gosh, what awesome detail in such short time!

    I do like that shot!
    It would be interesting, to me, to see shays #1, and #2, doubleheaded on the 11% grade.

    The BEST as usual Shamus my friend. A great inspiration to us all.
    I have never seen or heard of the cribbed log trestle so you must have gone back in time to find one.
