    CSX Static/Diorama Yard Layout

    Thanks Louis! I want to some detail to the flat car at some point, but my next step is working on scenery. Since I'm not modelling a specific yard, I may leave the fire truck "decal-less" as if it is being delivered as a new apparatus to a department somewhere.

    These engines don't fall from the sky.

    Welcome back to the hobby! I left the hobby a few years back, due to lack of "wife approval", but lately decided to get back into it aswell! Great choice. Which line do you plan on modelling?

    John Deere Grader with Snowplow 1:87

    Great looking model! I just saw one of these being used the other day and I thought it was something locally used. Didn't realize it was used in other parts of the country. Very nice.

    CSX Static/Diorama Yard Layout

    Well, no more scenery done yet, but I've got some trains now! I actually found a locomotive I forgot I had, an Athearn SD40-2 CSX YN2. I just need some new handrails, as they were torn apart at some point on the front and back, and not sure where they went. In the mail today came a Bachmann...

    Keeping cats off the layout

    From experience, I know that cats DESTROY layouts. My father had a great layout he worked on for years, and one cat destroyed basically everything. The scenery, mountains, and tunnels are destroyed. I doubt if he'll ever rebuild it.
