    Is that a couple of ladies washing their car at night, do tell? The lighted buildings are awesome and almost look real. Almost time to tear this one down and start over so i can see updates i know i have mentioned this before but your pictures are amazing and look professional. You own the hubble telescope or something?

    Thanks in2tech. That ranch house and the duplex next to it are Menards buildings. They both came with the people and each Menards building has Jack the German Shepard. The two young women are washing the car both day and night. They really like a clean car. Fortunately, it's always summer on my layout so they are at it 12 months a year.

    I can't think about tearing this layout down, I haven't finished it yet. Don't worry, I will be adding details like people, trees, brush, animals and the like and documenting it here for a long time to come. I'm also thinking about tying the two ends of the E together and installing a lift bridge of some kind where the door is at some point so I may not be finished even after I'm finished.

    I use my smartphone for pictures and videos. It's a Samsung Galaxy S8+. It takes really good pictures and videos. I also have a Canon digital SLR that I hardly ever use. It's a really good camera but the phone is so handy and easy to use that I only use the Canon for situations where I would need different lenses or to use a tripod. 99.9% of the time all I need is the smartphone.

    Next up is the campground and lake so I'll have new pictures in the not too distant future.

    If the young ladies wash the car 24/7, send them my way. Your phone takes great videos and pictures.

    Haven't checked into this thread in a while. All I can say is that your layout looks like, well- fun. Lots of new stuff to see and absolutely great details. Yeah I really like the '49 ford, too, but I think I hear a Bruce Springsteen song playing in my head. "Pink Cadillac, crushed velvet seats, ridin' down the pike cruisin' down the street" Did I really see a one sitting by the depot or was it a trick of the lighting? All in all, outstanding as always.

    Thanks Tom. That is a pink Cadillac. I've been looking for an O scale Elvis to go with it but haven't found one yet. I love the details and have many yet to add. Some I already have and they are waiting for to find their home on the layout and others are still out there somewhere but I hope to find them at some point.

    The layout is a lot of fun for me. It's my own blend of high rail and toy train that is just right for me. Sometimes I go into the train room to run trains for 10 minutes and find I'm still there an hour later, watching the trains run through different scenes and thinking of improvements.
