    I like that scene, probably reminiscent of many across the country. Some I've seen have a sign or plaque near the locomotive for visitors to read. One I saw in Minnesota (for a less than fully rehabilitated steamer) was a fund drive sign asking people to save "Good 'Ol 101" or something like that.

    Comments about the air conditioner in your photos prompt me to suggest the possibility of designing a temporary cover for it or even just a board to put in front of it painted the same blue as your back drop. I used a piece of blue painted masonite in a couple of my older photos of the layout that would otherwise have revealed a distracting background of furniture, tv set, and ceiling lights. Just a thought.

    Good suggestion. First I have to figure out how to set it in place without having to take the park out so I can get close enough to the AC unit to put the block up.

    You used MS Paint to take out the A/C. What a beautiful day on your layout!!!
