    I really curious how you're going to work the Pepperidge Farm package and Pepsi can into your layout... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Great work so far. Looks like you're making good progress. I also dare say that most of us have strayed from our plans from time to time.

    rick,

    buy me a train ticket.......

    maybe more like my step dad vs the trains.....

    he likes to play witht hem, but doesnt really know how to react when a 24 car train decides to break away down the 2% grade.... and then derail..... and then fly down the staircase!!!! ...... yeah, ill have to "train" him....

    anyways, more pics will be up late tonight!

    Layout looks great! When I started mine I wasn't going to paint the plywood. But in the end I did and it really saved alot of scenery work in the end.

    well, upon further testing, the radius comming from under the.... errr...."bridge" i guess... is too tight to make the switch.... the engine is wanting to follow the switch instead of going straight, so im moving things around tonight, i'll have pics posted when im done....
