First of all, Jim ... I called you "Mike". Had a serious brain-fart then and now my face is red. :/ When I was young and living in Burbank, CA, I visited the Lockheed Employees' Model RR Club, which was located off of Hollywood Way near Vanowen Blvd. I was taken by the size and scenery of the layout. There was a great deal of special effects that was built into the entire thing. I was told much of the special effects was due to the fact there was several members who worked at the Disney Studios (also located in Burbank). It's amazing what can be done with talent, and imagination. Again, thanks for posting.
