    Welcome aboard Mike! Glad you took time to post some pics! We love 'em! One of the best things about this forum is that we welcome and encourage members of all skill and experience levels to get involved. Sure, there are some members whose work is worthy of "Great Model Railroads" and we love to look at their stuff for inspiration but its also nice to see what everyone else is up to. I have digital camera envy myself since even under the best conditions my point-and-shoot sometimes doesn't look as good as I'd wish! Posting pics is also a great way to self critique and see what you might wish to improve. I like your structures in the pics by the way and you make some smooth looking asphalt roads.

    I have to agree with Ralph, Mike, your work is much better than you appear give yourself credit for. Though I'd like to recommend a tripod for that digital camera of yours ;)

    announce1 Welcome Aboard Mike!!!:wave:

    I haven't been here that long myself, but it's a friendly lot. From the pics you posted I'd say we sure would like to see more. Personally, I gather inspiration from all members here. If we were any better than anyone else what good would it do to be here? No matter to me, I like trains and that means if it's bare plywood or varying degrees of completion.

    And if you don't think I've already gathered a few ideas from you.........Think Again:D

    Welcome Mike, hope to see a lot more from you!!!

    Reminds me of a fortune(less) cookie I had one time.

    Fortunately for you since his pictures are new they are on the main Gallery page. Load one of them and you will have a link on that page to view all of his pictures in the gallery.

    http://www.the-gauge.com/gallery/browseimages.php?do=member&imageuser=5598

    Tada!

    But I agree, the Gallery is a bit difficult to navigate.

    I agree with the others, Mike, nothing at all laughable about your layout. Very nicely done and some interesting scenes. Welcome to the Gauge :wave: , I think that you'll enjoy it here.

    Welcome, I see nothing wrong with your pics. But I must say someone should call the vice squad. I think you will find no criticism except constructive here. If you ask for opinions you will get them. If you ask for advice you will get it. Also don't be afraid to give it when you can in the right spirit.
