UH-OH!! UH-OH!! UH--OH!! Larry, please don't tell me you are tearing out all the rails (not the first time, folks) and going to get into scale ships! It might work, you could elevate flume-type canals and have little horses pulling the boats, etc.
Seriously, it looks great, and perhaps I can drop by some evening this late August to see it live? Best to you and the chickens, (no fooling)
