With your work with Z scale I have one you wear glasses???

Nice work and I like that room size layout.

I have a pair of granny glasses that I have worn for a dozen years. Somehow they still work and I use them everyday at my hobby desk. Good eye protection as well, especially working on your back under the layout.

Looking through these N photos it seems like a good scale for photography; at least with my equipment. Here is 'The Shack' and A Number 1.

At first glance there Jim, the line of light from the bottom of the other side's door, looked like the shiny metal edge of a BBQ plate. With the cook's arm out it looked like he was grilling up a storm. A special of worn out Boot Soles "We don't charge for the holes" Upper Tenders 10c extra. Laces 5c. Done in axle box grease (faux fried Onions).

That's OK Jim, from where I'm sitting, it looks 1:1. And it has one of your favorite bridges in it.
Way back in 1970 mountain climbing in Franch I remember bridges like this in many places (Alps). Some were put up by guides to make a passage easier and some for cars. I never saw one like this for trains; please don't mention this to anyone.
