    Thanks so much, Tom. You bring back good memories. I built an 8x8 Lionel layout in our basement with my dad. I had some Lionel and Plasticville buildings. Nothing was to scale. The crossing gate and cross buck, the gateman and other things were oversize but running trains on that layout was so much fun and it all looked so real to me at the time.

    The layout population is growing. I finally got around to adding people to the city. 20180917_003536.jpg 20180917_003557.jpg 20180917_003626.jpg 20180917_003638.jpg 20180917_003649.jpg 20180917_003659.jpg 20180917_003739.jpg 20180917_003747.jpg 20180917_003800.jpg 20180917_003825.jpg

    Thanks in2tech. Either posting the link here or sending it to me in a PM is fine. If you post it here everyone could see it, or you could start a new thread so that everyone can view the layout. However you choose to do it is fine with me.

    I have been doing little things on the layout and took a few new pictures. I wired the block signal to an MTH ITAD so it goes from green to red as the train passes, then yellow, and back to green. It doesn't look red in this picture but it's definitely red in person.

    The train is coming into town.

    The New York Central passenger train is pulling into the station.

    The passenger train is a few miles from the station and is exiting the long tunnel. This could be a dangerous crossing so the gateman makes sure traffic is stopped and everyone is safe.

    That's it for now.
