    Almost finishing assembling the loco 2 stall building.

    Now as I started to fool with the 90' walthers turntable.. it's like the rest of them that are made.. doesn't work well.. really at all.

    So The roundhouse/turntable and steam engine facilites will be for show and thats all.

    The 2 stall diesel building will be attached to the yard.

    I'm experimenting with super-elevation on some of the turns.

    BLMA makes some great looking signals! Can't wait to get all the circuitry to get them wired up!

    We put up some buildings (some temporary) to see placement and viewing distances.. etc..

    The next big project will be finishing laying track in the yard and intermodal facility.. Not gonna be a cheap acquisition.

    Looking pretty awesome there :D Keep up the good (and by the sounds of it, spirited) work! Also, I love the look of that North Western SD...70ACe(?) Yeah, I'm no good at recognizing locos... :( Especially those outside my modeling era...

    Looks like you're on fire! Keep it going.

    Your visitors seem to really like the layout. You may have just risen to the top rank of favorite relative.

    The harvest looks pretty cool. i love midwestern scenery, who needs mountains when you got grain elevators.
