I agree - very cool. Scooby your trackwork is exceptionally realistic - what size rail are you using? The closeup realism is great. Did you cut your own ties?


Also, please explain the support "column" under the trestle - looks like a stack of cut timber as opposed to the normal bents. What was the reason you used that instead of more bents? Engine house also looks believable - very rustic simple structure that would be typical of a low budget logging operation.


Great Job so far - more pics please!

Very cool! Nice little layout you have there.

Now, let me give you a suggestion on posting photos. Since you have exceeded the size limit on width, you can narrow your images down to the mandated width of 640 pixels wide by using a Firefox browser. When your image first appears in the editor, click on it.
You will see tiny boxes appear in the corners. Click onto one of them and push in. You will see numbers appear that indicate the pixel size. Keep pushing in until you hit the magic number of "640," which is what I have done with the one above.
