Well it ain't pretty yet but it's but the upper pass is operational. Scenery will come after I finish the yard, which I hope will be in February.


The only problem this is creating is run-away trains.

Looks good Ferg! Does this enable you to do something that was previously...er...non-doable? I'd like to see a post of the trackplan to see where this fits into the overall scheme.


Wow! Fergie, you have been busy. Looking real good fellow and love the l-o-o-o-ng winding trains. I thnk that I will pack my snow shoes and come up to play.
I see a black Challenger, but where's Pinky?:D

What's the overall dimensions of the layout?


Sorry I must of missed this:eek: The layout is an "L" shape with an overall size of 24' x 10'. I have room to grow but it would be prudent in the eyes of the CFO for me to finish what I have before expansion. There is talk of an outer main line at this time:rolleyes:
