    and yes, I know it looks like crap, but I'm not done. this is just a sneak peek (hand rails will remain red)
    and here's what I call my crew car. part of a b-mann ATSF caboose riding on a b-mann P&LE gondola:
    [​IMG]
    looking around my room because my parents kicked me off the computer for about 3 hours, I relized I coukld add a little yard and another industry to the layout. And yes, those curves are sharp (oh well):

    and yes, that one is a little fuzzy, but the others are good. and yes, I will work on the roof of the transfer building.

    Ralf may I suggest moving the orange on the side of 1347 forward a little so it meets the orange cab. also need something on the front. Not sure what. Might get back with you on that. But looks good to me.
