    It's not the camera but the guy behind it! Ansel Adams would still great pictures with a disposable camera. ;)

    Getting my new look bus on the layout and wired up through an NCE light it board so I can control it along with the other layout lights through the DCC command station. The bus is rated to allow up to 9 volts to power it but the light it boards only put out about 3 volts. Plenty of brightness though so I'll leave it just like that. The alignment of the PC board that holds the front light LEDs in position was a little off out of the box so I had to take it apart and figure out how to reposition and get it to stay lined up when I put the bus back together. Most people wouldn't probably even care but it's such a PITA to fuss with wiring under the layout I though it best to get it sorted before I get it installed only later to have it annoy me and have to go through the process again.

    I'm having a hard time getting the camera to focus on the first pic due to ambient lighting so a little fuzzy.

    Very nice looking bus. Like your sign about no cow tipping.

    Updating my MTL bulkhead flat cars with some recently purchased weathered wood decking also from MTL. Rugged card stock that I simply brushed the backside with some micro scale liquid tape, let dry a little then stuck in place. Very nice fit.

    For the last week I have been building docks for the pleasure craft at Wicked Wanda's and Water Front Willy's.I also built a set of stairs down to those docks and installed a few ladders. I also angled the sea plane dock with an extension. Shot taken from the water level.

    And an overhead shot that shows the docks.

    And with all the craft tied up for the night. Three of these are party boats or fishing party boats. All the boats were either built from kits or from scratch. Two small runabouts are at the bottom.

    A Osborn Models 45 foot crab and lobster boat is on order and it is a wood kit the same as the Beaver seaplane. Should be here within the week from Canada.

    Ferry boats run their props while loading to keep from being pushed away from the ramp. Thus the stirred up water in the ferry slips.
