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!

Wow, fantastic work. Wish I had a place to have an indoor railroad again. Lost mine when we needed a family room and extra bedroom. Pleas post some more pictures.

I am impressed. I particularly liked the 'lake' photo. Where is the lake in the context of the other photo's - along the wall
between the funky bridge and the train shed?

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.

Nice free-flowing design! And yes, please take other photos of the river area - that photo with the trees reflected on the water is a real winner! Do you have a track plan for the rest of the basement in mind?
