    I like the detail where you split the tracks and used two tunnel portals like the real railroads do. Double track tunnels are very rare, because you need to remove a LOT of rock for nothing if you need to go just a bit wider.

    The blue backdrop is nice! Try putting a spacer between the backdrop and the layout to stop shadows from falling on the "sky" :D

    Thanks Guys.

    A spacer would be nice. [​IMG]

    My wife and child really like it.

    Only two other people have seen it,
    when it was all brown,
    they said pretty cool.

    It hides in the basement.

    Here is some roadwork, still wet.
    Please excuse the tornado.

    Loco,

    Once again excellent shots only one suggestion, have you thought about adding weeds along the side of the track?

    Loco,

    Here is an example of what I did, I added clumps of foilage just to make the track look inconsistant like the real thing.

    [​IMG] As you can see they represent weeds and small scrub on both sides of the track.
