The MLW RS-18 is heavy since by that time - era I model - they were pretty worn out.
tootnkumin: Thanks for the tip
...and another quick video. As soon as I get more proficient with video taking/editing I think it will come up decent.
Athearn genesis GP38-2 with sound . Details are very good, cab etc.. Sound is great too
An el-cheapo P1K Boxcar - repainted, re-numbered and weathered (Ok I did not change the mold on stir-up yet..)
Some miscellaneous shot . Weathered rolling stock at Ste-Rosalie with MLW RS18 in the lead.
agreed: The backdrop has a big impact
I will do my best next time. However here's the measurement:
*Bois d'Arcy section of the layout is 18 inches deep
*Ste-Rosalie section (with the grain elevator) is 20 inches deep
*St-Hyacinthe (small yard and train station) is 20 inches deep

Some pics since I’ve started to install my home made signal system above.
Again I started at Bois d’Arcy section of the layout to do so.
Trio of MLW's at Boi d'Arcy
Something else I am working on is signalling.
Mind you, for now it is to indicate turnout positions. Later, much later, I may go with block detection.
I am building the signals from my part box.
Basically some non-descript signal heads from I don't know who in a bargain bin, which I...
Thanks ! Greatly appreciated it
since I am doing some scenery and getting the signals for this location hook up I took some time to do soemthing else as well: a bit of weathering. Boxcar at Bois D'Arcy construction co. warehouse and a covered hopper at Ste-Rosalie.
