    An awesome Train Cam movie.....

    That was awesome!! The Home Depot sells little wireless video cameras that fit on an HO flat car nicely.

    It has begun!! The Midland Line.

    I like those recessed lights in the ceiling. Can't go wrong with that saw either. Nice work btw.

    The note taped to the white box says Pete under Josh. I had to prove to my classmates that indeed it was my models so what better way then put their names on the side of the train.

    Layout Extension In Work
