Is Summit USA a superstore or shop, never heard of it over here. It's a great looking backdrop building

That certainly looks like a great addition to a layout...
I wonder if they give more options in the kit to what stores you can use?

Here's my little contribution, i have been extending my benchwork and placing the viaduct, it's not an easy job in such a short space, it's complicated more as there are two tracks, one over and one under, you can see the biggest of my car's i used to test for clearance, no problems here

Looking good Steve!

Summit USA is a manufacturer, but tring to find a dealer or website for them is another story. This will be the 3rd or 4th modern structure they've released, all noted in Model Railroader newsletters, but I can never find them anywhere. Walther's does not carry them. The first one I saw was a modern Denny's.

I'll keep you updated if I find anything, this stip mall has really caught my interest, I need 1-2 of them on my layout!

EDIT Dumb me, just looked at the bottom of the MR newsletter and there it was!

Not meaning to be critical or anything - just wondering. It looks like you're building in what could be a rather severe S-curve under the bridge. Will a train of those long cars track okay through it?

Addition To layout

This past week I've added about 12 inches to my 4x8 layout. I also added some hills to the sides . This is based on the Trunk Line in the Atlas layout book. I have limited space so this is what I could use for now .There is a double round for mainlines and lots of siding for Industries . I aslo added on to the end for more Industry or farm land. The mountains weree made from Newspaper , Paper bagss and then covered with Plaster of paris. I will be painting the hills and adding foilage to them next . :)

Great shot's everyone,,,,,,,

Mark that's some snap track i used to test my longest car, if that will go round anything will, i'll have a bit more of a gentle curve to play with when done. I am looking at just running stuff under 70ft in length, the mainstay of work will be coal cars, box cars and hoppers to fit in with the switching theme. I would love to model a main line train or two but with only 18' x 8'6" to play with the trains would be pulling AND pushing themselves around.

Paul nice progress Paul

Better Nate than Lever, I guess.:D I have gotten to work on some more scenery this week. The photos are of a hand carved stone wall. I poured the wall using Plaster of Paris, carved and then stained it. The rocks coming out of the wall were added yesterday and stained tonight. You may not be able to see it, but the wall is curved at one end.

Looking down the wall to the overpass over the road (the white plaster). The road will be a dirt road as it is still 1925 there.....
