    I recently moved to the Fürstentum of Liechtenstein. Am I the only Z-scale Modeller there? Most likely not - Z-scale enthusiasts are all over the world. I really love this small scale and the creativity it demands.

    Thank you for the warm welcome!
    As a BNSF fan you may be a little bit disappointed with me, since I have only a very few Santa Fe items.
    This is nearly it:

    Hi Sven, welcome, glad to have you on board. I think your scenery is exceptional. I would not have known it was Z-Scale if you had not told us. The water is especially realistic.

    Hello Sven. I am new to the forum also. That is a mighty nice layout you have there. I can barely SEE Z-scale; I can't imagine working with it. Very well done sir.

    No problem, Amos,
    I will magnify the pictures, so that you (and everybody else) can easily see them:

    It never rains in Southern California ;-)

    But there is a lot of water and sun at the East Coast, too.
    E.g. at the Chesapeake Bay;

    Hi Sven - welcome to TrainBoard! These are some amazing shots of some amazing modelling. You should consider sharing one or two of your favorites over on our Weekend Photo Fun thread! The membership at large (as well as TrainBoard lurkers) would really enjoy seeing these. Truly outstanding.

    Regards -Mike

    When did you clean your rolling stock properly the last time?

    Correct, Kurt,
    Took us a while to move it to the OLD PORT SHOP, who is specialized on big steamers........
