    Trucklover, that bridge and your engiens are pretty cool. I wanted to pick up that kit, but I have nowhere for it. maybe one day i can have an addition.

    as far as rosters go, it would be un-cool of me to post mine here, lol. I just wish i had some good new scenes. I haven't really done to much work on my own scenery, and i should. I think i might just forget operating signals and things of that nature, and just ballast the track. the most i think i want to do is switch to undertable turnout machines.

    You don't have to; 144 is one of the remaining unpatched units. Of course, you can patch it as another unit...

    heres a look under my table at where I store all the engines and cars. Well okay most of my engines are here and about half of the cars are here. As you can see i need to find another spot to put them all. I like keeping them all in the boxes and in the same spot when not in use and its easy to just go down there and look for the car or engine I want and pull it out of the box.

    forgot to mention that most of the rows are 2 boxes deep :mrgreen: I keep the cars and engines i use most in the front row and the ones i dont use as much in the back row. Still I would like to be able to look down and see them all so i need to find a better spot for all of them
