    There is still a LOT of work yet to be done but we have come a long way.

    Chris, beautiful work. You are tempting most of us to try our hand at it - arn'tcha? Even though I work in N scale I do not believe I would have the patience to try that. Again, great work and photography.

    Thanks Bill. It`s what we do my friend. I know it`s a lot more involved but it gets in ya blood, Took me 5 years to finally decide it`s the way I wanted to go with my modeling ability.
    So if it helps any one thats fine , Some have never seen Traction or thought about it as an other option.;)
    btw we run power of the overhead.

    N gauge would be a lot lot harder:eek:

    Chris.
    Very good work and great pictures. I guess everybody was real lucky that no gas leaked and exploded in the last two pictures.

    Hi Dick the gas had just been deliverd to the gas station on the hill:D :D :D .
    Hi TrainClown, If you fly to Toronto July 19 20 21 The NMRA "do"
    you will see it run there :D :D :D :D :p
    As to what needs to be done, well the things that go with a street scene -- garbage , garbage bins grids at least 4 grassy boulavards + the rest of the track ballest , trees bushes people.
    I think I`d better stop there even I did`nt know how much still had to be done. phew:eek:

    Glad you like it Tyson;)
    It runs sweet.

    "Little Freight Stop"...

    I love that little station two posts up. Can you post some pictures of it?:) Is it a combination Freight depot and passenger station? That is just the sort of thing I'm looking for to spruce up my town.

    Thanks!
