    Wow, those look great, love the barn!

    Me too, trying to move as much beyond kits as I can. Been saving up lots of architectural things.

    Interesting read! I'd like to know a bit more about your wiring for the auto reverse loop thingie.

    I've thought about it... to be honest, i assumed the decks were ballasted, but i suppose some research is in order.

    on another note, I read in a recent thread about using colored pencils to add to the detailing process... so tonight I used white and black to"gently" add to the masonry weathering... pics to come...

    It looks real nice. Will you ballast the deck?

    You need to drill two holes per side with a #80 drill bit. They have pegs that will slide right in. Yes it will fit in the jewel case when they are attached :thumbs_up:

    I also forgot to mention, and apparently can't edit this post: I plan on the lower left side of the layout to be complete with a "levee" and plan on building a stucture similar to the one at Mauch Chunk Lake's dam to simulate the water control that will allow the water to flow out of the bottom of the dam. I'll post more details when I get there...

    min radius is about 12"... I am using flextrack so it gives me "flexibility". I am trying to keep all curves above 11". My layout is a 4.5'x8' L shape its about 3' deep on both sides

    Nothing wrong with editing a track plan. My last 2 layouts started with no trackplans; just a vision of what I wanted. Most of my layout changes improved running, others by necessity. Your sweeeping, smooth flowing curves look great! What is your min rad? How big is this plan?

    Its fun, working from pics or going custom. I have painted graffiti on a few of my buildings and love how I can make it represent whatever I'm into, family members, etc. I don't mess with the decals... its more fun this way!

    I haven't been brave enough to apply graffiti to mine yet. I think maybe I should.

    The biggest one with with the large tanks is model power which can be bought on ebay if you search "n scale oil", but I got them for a bit cheaper because I got them at a hobby shop...

    Are those tanks at the bottom center kits or scratch built?

    Looking good! I think I'm going to try out one of those rock molds.
