    Got a deep corner on your layout just begging for a dramatic scene? You might even go for dramatic flair by making it an actual floor to layout "grade level" cutout! Instead of looking up at a high tressel, you'd be looking down at the anxious homeowner!

    On the JJJ&E which is entirely graded, The view is for the most part always looking down at the action.

    I like that aspect...

    Stay cool and run steam.... [​IMG] :cool: :cool:

    Needs a sky light and a Lazy Boy recliner in the right position; but, I would admit I would rather be sleeping someplace else...

    Dramatic. I like your choice to use this word. Fits that scene very well!

    Probably not by choice. You can't see trains from the front porch.

    Typically, that is a prototypical scene if modeled prototypically on a prototypical layout the viewer would say that isn't a typically prototypical scene.

    ... umm.. typically speaking of course.

    Too many places for birds to hang out on the trestle above the house.

    Wonder if you can get special insurance for an event like a covered hopper filled with what ever hitting the road. Ouch.

    As cool as it is I don't think I'd want to live there. The "oops" factor is a bit too high {pun}. Can you imagine what must rain down? Not to mention what it would have been like during the steam era.
    It's easy to tell the Highway (in this case literaly) came last, but who was there first, house or train?? Bet they got the land for a real cheap price!

    Certainly an interesting site and a great area to model. I don't think I'd be too keen to live there though

    I would prefer to live above the track and to look at the trains. [​IMG]

    Bob, Then it would look like this on the JJJ&E:

    And this is the view from the house: [​IMG]

    And the road: [​IMG]

    A little tid-bit for football fans, the road bridges are the "Joe Montana Bridges"

    My bet is the house was there first and they sold the "air rights". Just a guess
