    Russ, the layout is currently 28" x 48". Still need to add a nice finished base and edge which will add another 1 1/2" to each dimension.

    And I don't know what to tell you about the Age line, that number seems to be moving to fast. I just hope it doesn't increase again before I finish this project. Still need to get started on my layout.

    Jeff and John thanks for the kind comments. I'll post more pics as it progresses more.

    I have been trying to wrap up a one year old project this football season. It is the Luetke Brewery. It is one of the biggest projects I have been working on. I am getting close to completion. I just finished the smoke stack last weekend. Here is the image of all the structures:

    I still have a few things to do including building the small sheds that come with the kit, add small smoke stacks to the brew house, weathered the buildings, add the brew tanks (shown to the right in top photo, they are in the bag), light and scenic. But I am very pleased with the results so far.

    Nice work Rob! I'd love to see more of this new addition, with all that foam you can have lots of great terrain! :D

    I am adding a module to my yard module. It will feed from the yard and give me a place to store engines during a show. I will eventually scratch-build an engine repair building on the right stubs (the long track in the back has the work pit in the bottom). Maybe a paint shop on the left?

    Nice work guys. Not to much has happend on my module. But a couple off building is done and I'm still trying out stuff to get a small town layout feel on the module.

    Looks great Torsja, I have missed a lot of this model, but it does have a small town feel already.

    Great idea Dave, using a Transfer table instead of compound turnouts.

    Torsja, I really like that trackwork. Trains going everywhere instead of straight, module after module.

    Got the transfer table finished today. Works great. Even installed a digital speedometer on the inside track (display is on the side). Left the one track long enough to park my Challenger on. Leaves an option to continue the track onto another module.

    I will eventually have a floor around the work pit (on right) and an aisle around the raised track (on posts on left).

    The lines on the right will be a road.

    I have had a couple days off for the holiday, and took a couple pics of work I have done to my module.

    I added a covered drying platform to my old time sawmill scene, and got the lights working:

    I have also place all the major structures I plan on using for my Wharf scene:

    The last structure I added to the wharf is Seaside Tuna Incorporated, a tuna canning facility. It smells real good at S.T.Inc.:
