    Thanks for posting John. Eddie, they are the IR sensors for the crossing signals. They only show in photo images.

    I was thinking block signals, but two pairs of them? Thanks, Ed for clarifying. Very nicely done. How did you do the road lines? They're sharp and straight.

    Well done. It looks as it the James River Branch has been a strong influence! :D

    Your lighting and crisp buildings look fantastic! Any close ups?

    The IR system is from Rail Logic. The first sensor trips the crossbucks, if for some reason the train does not reach the second set in 10 secs. it will turn them off. The lines on the road are made with 1/32 pin striping tape.

    Bryan, Yep, this will made its first appearance in about a month.

    I have more images, some close-ups. Will post them soon. Also will post a few of the in progress pics.

    That is awesome! Is that 0.03" polystyrene you used for the roads, etc?

    Also, great job on the building kits. I hope I can get mine to look half as good.

    The road is made out of WS Smooth-it. Then sanded down.
