    No vandalism on my railroad, Ken. We have sentries ;)

    Will be weathered though :)

    Ha ha. :) Better be careful. If that dirt was cleared away, there might not be anything left underneath. :eek:

    We had visitors from down under this week and delighted Gary (Gats) could help with the new staging yard for the AW.

    Added a narrow fascia board along front of layout 2016-07-27 16.41.27.jpg
    Fitted a walkway and pipes between the Vanco buildings

    Now the staging has scenery, this gives a more open view

    Great composition and angle for the F7, and the shot of 643 looks like the real thing!

    I could do a 'drone' style flyby of the layout, maybe?
