The Fox Valley Railroad
Hello everyone! Some more great work you're showing here.

Well almost everything I've shown you all has been pretty Urban. There are a few small areas of my Fox River Valley that's a little more rural. So today I offer a work in progress, a farm stand converted from the old Plasticville chicken coop. It and highway both need some more work and signs. Oh and a moody picture my son took of the local mill. I hope you enjoy.

One of my latest purchases from the LHS:
*Drool* Nice purchase! I wish I had a few of those new image BNSF cars, would go nice with my older versions...

Jeffrey, any chance you can inform is as to what the full roster of L&A is, after the renumbering?

I was just pulling your chain Crandel :)

Im actualy a big fan of the GG1's they have one in a shed at IRM. Over heads, they can be a big pain in the but just trying to work on a layout just like telephone lines are.

Good show fellas!
Here's my addition- I had this somewhat unremarkable picture from a couple of nights, and I gave it a few burns and dodges to see if I could turn it into something interesting. Another part of my long quest for artificial sunlight.

Finished building this kit today. It's 13&1/2" long. It's a Kibri HD drop center flat. Had to add a bunch of my own weights to keep it on track.:D

Figured I'd share the new MTH Loco I picked up today. Overall, I'm very happy with it although a little bummed that the rear coupler is not set at the correct height. And with it being MTH's automatic couplers, I don't know what to do about it. There's nothing I can find online and nothing in the manual, so I'm going to see what MTH has to say about it tomorrow.

Anyway... The pics.




However, I think overall I like the sound in my Paragon2 AC6000 better, but the detail of the MTH is overall better IMO. Not that the the Paragon2 is shabby at all in the detail dept.

not bad looking. I dont like how thick the handrails are, the ditch lights are ginormous. Almost like battery boxes. Also how can they not have a plow on it.

Some shots of John Waite's Sn3 Tweetsie. This scene is in the Doe River canyon and really does the prototype justice with the vertical rock wall and the drop off down to the river. John's layout is one of the layouts that will be open next year for the 30th annual Narrow Gauge Convention in St Louis.

I came in way too late to be able to comment on all the pictures, being away for a week. I'll just say a nice job done by all. Thanks for posting all your work, it always inspires me to do better or change something on my layout.
