    Hi Everyone,

    its been a while since I posted (new job and all) but I managed
    to borrow a cheap digital camera at a recent local show (actually
    held on the campus of the college where I work, how cool is that!.

    Anyhow most pictures are of the Bendtrack group I belong to, if you don't know it, you should look into this standard. We've had a great time running long trains and it allows us to spend more time on the outside with the public rather than inside a pit behind a skyboard.

    So without further ado.. some photos

    seting up the modules

    This T module has been worked on by many members of the group, its a real team effort and is beginning to look good. The whole thing has been sponsored by our LHS in Halifax, Maritime Hobbies and Crafts.. had to mention them as they've been great

    Great pics and a nice module :) Looks like a fun group!

    Keystone Crossing was the first thot.

    The road reminds me of Bunkum Road, near Renssel-tuckey, where I grew up. A couple of Chicago bears died there in a VW bug in the 60's. Bunkum Road crossing :rolleyes:

    Of course, there's always Cobblers Knob Crossingg.

    Or Toejam Crossing.

    Or Potato Hill Crossing.

    Or... :D :D :D
