Here are some shots from my layout, such as it is.


In this first one, I was seeing if I could make a decent 'night shot'.


Same shot, but with the lights on.


Here I decided to turn the locos light on and "WOW", did that make a difference!


Same subect, straight on shot.


This shot came out pretty good. The loco on the right is an E7, on the left is an E6.


Another 'night' shot. Yes, that's a Union Pacific E6B you see there.


Here's one of my industrial areas.


A different angle on the industrial area. That's a GP30 lashed up to the UP E6B.


Birds eye view of the industrial area. The black cylinders on the left are something that can be found in about every rural backyard in the US. Septic tanks.


A look down the spur going into the left side of the industrial area. That's an EMD SW1200 you see there.


I want the MKT back!!
Nice shots, Jeff. I see you're using built in ballast. What about that hole in the wall, though?

Judging by looking at past photos, thats a window with a window AC unit put in it.

Nice pics you've got there Jeffrey!

Jeff -

Those night scenes are fantastic! For some reason I like the top [first] one best of all - it has an eerie look to it, like a ghost train


I want the MKT back!!
Yeah, I never noticed that. The fuzziness helps with the effect, too.


Diesel Detail Freak
The extra window is covered up, and the backdrop has broken away. My dad's AC units never filled the window fully on his trailer.

The area with the hole is leftover from a mine scene that was on the previous layout. I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet as track work and wiring take precedence.
