WOW!!! Beautiful pics of a BEAUTIFUL layout!!! Great job!!
If I may add: best my research could come up with was all railroads differed in height and even within the railroad itself. Most were a scale distance 14-18 feet from the bottom of the base to the top of the signal head. I have a ~1/8" separation from sig head to end of brass at top. Be looking for my post this weekend on how I made my 3 light sigs for around $6.00.
I've added a short gallery of Platte Canyon Sub images to my website.
I love your imagery! Sure wish you were local as I'd love to come see it.
