    Here is my latest photos of a freight train. This time I put up a black blanket to cover the bed and I removed the brown light pole in the corner you might have saw inmy last pictures. I am going to get some light blue tag board from the craft store and use it for sky at the edge of the table and also get some backdrops for the walls to get rid of the white. Anyways, here is what I took last night.There are a total of 30 pictures in this series taken by the railfan.

    1. Bob zoomed in on the train and it looks like the Consolidated Freightways truck just barely made it across the crossing.
    2. Bob quikly zoomed out to get a wideshot
    3. The train is getting closer and so is that truck!!
    4. Close-up of the UP Dash 9
    5. The CF truck has had to stop because Bob is standing in the middle of the street.

    Great job! I love your rolling stock...and your weathering is coming right along;)
    I think your love of trucks along with your love of the railroad gives your layout it's own very unique look and personality. One shot of the layout and it is easy to tell it is yours and not someone Else's:thumb:. Every time I see it I am more and more impressed by your work. Makes me want some trucks for my layout:D

    Thanks Steve, Maybe you should get some big rigs for that awsome layout of yours.

    BTW, those cliffs and river that you just did on your layout look FANTASTIC:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    That Bob is making a nuisance of himself. Must be one of those "foamers" that were being discussed last week.
