    Thanks to Scale Trains' 50% off sale I bought some new old power for the Sub...(in reality UP has many of these on dead lines or for sale).

    But of course they needed PTC to run on today's rails, so I added the standard UP antenna farm. The locos are - as all Scale Trains products have been - near perfect.

    In addition to the N Scale Railroading cover and photo article, I've uploaded to YouTube a whole bunch of videos - this URL should get you started:



    You should be able to see the whole bunch without too much searching...

    Beautiful layout, really shows off N scale's strengths. By any chance is there a cab view video somewhere?

    We had a roach coach visit Boeing for breakfast and lunch, they did pretty good business until someone found live maggots in the ice. They stopped coming to the plant for awhile.

    Funny MK.

    In the Tulsa area that would be the Arkansas River and Lake Keystone.

    Other than JFRTM I've found another project. This is Villa La Paz near Keene CA. The prototype nestles near a horseshoe - which I happen to have available...But first I need to build it. This is the main building, there are
    two smaller satellite structures which I suspect were kitchen and laundry in the facilities' TB sanatorium days.

    And of course it has an interior:

    Now for some paint to block unwanted light, and more building.
