    Alan,

    before starting to drive you should drink a couple of Duvels or Trappists and I'm pretty sure that you will stay on the right side of the road [​IMG] :D [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Paul, I would not dare drive after partaking of a couple of Trappist Ales :eek: :D

    Actually, I have driven in several European countries (including Belgium) in my own car, and I really feel comfortable driving on the "wrong" side of the road, but with my steering wheel on the "right" side :D This is especially helpful in the mountains in Switzerland, as when next to a precipice, I can see exactly how close I am to the edge!!! :cool:

    Ahh yes! Trappist! From Paul Van Herwegen's country. ;)

    I stayed at Ter Spegelt in Eersel for 6 months training in '86. It is a holiday camp about 10KM from Postel Belgium, where the monks were making that dark brown liquid. [​IMG]

    There is a little pub at Ter Spegelt where they play darts and serve Trappist, and our first Friday Night there we did partake. I was intrigued by seeing the bartender filling a huge bowl sized glass with this dark drink, and it was foaming over quite well (Brown Foam) when he whipped out a spatula and "CUT" the foam to exactly 3 fingers before serving.

    A friend and I managed to knock down 3 each of these wonders called Trappist, before the locals started laughing and pointing at us. We were hammered to say the least, and that pub became one of our regular spots... Until we discovered another local favorite, Gulden Drak [​IMG] Well thats another story.

    I'll doa topis on this in the inspection pit mayeb to day. But I did them with Gel Pens. they work well, but it'll only stick to certain textures of paint, so you better bring out your Dull-Cote.

    2' x 4' Lodi Junction layout. Photo taken outside for better background. I know some of you may have seen this already, but it's one of my favorite shots and I wanted to share it for any newcomers... this entire layout took about a month to build. YOU CAN DO IT!

    Really nice work gang! Only one thing was bothering me about most of the photos. [​IMG] I finally figured it out...the tracks aren't weatherd! :rolleyes: It's amazing, since I started doing that, it's one of my pet peaves. [​IMG] Still, nicely done folks! [​IMG]

    Talking about weathering, i've noticed most modelers don't weather their new locomotives. It kind of stunns me because most modelers will try to be as pickey as can be on details on their layout, but totally leave out the locos. Is it because they don't want to touch that brand new thing, just let it keep looking new? When I get a brand new loco, I can hardly wait to hit it with my weathering kit. Anyway here's a few of my locos on my very small portable layout.

    All the photos here are brilliant! good work everyone [​IMG] I need to get a scanner and then i will be able to share some photos with you all.
    Thomas, i also really prefer weathered locos. Sometimes a shiny new loco looks just a tad silly, with everything else weatherd, but great none the less... just like its fresh from the paint shop :D

    where did you get the scraper and the road grader? they look pretty cool.

    I will try to post some of my layout soon. Our daughter is really keeping us hopping. She got a Lionel NYC trainset this christmas and loves watching my N Scale stuff in the basement.

    I was reading an old ATSF magazine and came across a publicity photo showing a lineup of passenger & freight power. Here's my attempt at a similar photo.
