Well I finally got the track balasted and ran my first train. I tried my LGB starter set first and it ran great. I only needed to hook up wire to one part of the layout. The train ran great, ran smooth with no stopping or slowing down. Here are some pictures of my first test ran. My Bachmann ran great as well although the front wheels lifted off the track but that was over the creek without any support. (Thats the next project). After the cribbing and trestle goes in I will work on the Mountains and lanscaping and the finer details.

That sure looks like you all had fun.:D Nice to see the family involved.

Those LGB's will run forever and are very forgiving of glitches in trackwork.

As soon as the weather clears I will get some more pictures. I have a Bach 4-6-0 but I am waiting for new lead trucks. The current ones keep jumping the track. I tried adding weight and had no luck also tried to fix the track where it jumps, no luck though. I did get some plants in and finished my Mt. See Kittinny Mt rr for more updated pics.
