Progress is slow but everything going together well and have yet to encounter any track problems to my luck. If you saw my previous Pics. You'll relize theres a good bit of progress done. And i made my goal of completing the mainline by the end of the summer :) Sadly i have school now and have less time to work on it.

Things To do.

* finish laying track and yard
* work on wiring
* lay cork down and ballast
* After that start working on the scenery and so forth

Please Share you comments on my work.

Looking good Sir. It must feel great to be getting it down and seeing it work. A big thumbs up to you. Keep at it its coming together well. :)

Nice work, some days you feel like you have done nothing but others you seem to take great leaps forward, keep it up


Stay off the tracks!
Regarding the camera, if it has a "timer" mode, get a tripod, aim the shot and set the timer.

Then walk away.

The improvement in my photos was significant.
