    Thanks for the kind comments friends. I have the lights in the buildings , now I have to create a scene or three inside the buildings and with the street lights ( that I have to make yet) it should set off a nice night scene.;)

    Very nice Chris. I like that scroll work (curly cues) on top of the poles.

    ...Time WELL Spent, I'd Say!

    Chris, a post from you always means that we're in for a treat. This thread is no exception, as usual. That is some beautiful work. I especially liked the second-last picture. It's like walking along the tracks...without getting into trouble!:)

    Also, what an ingenious little overhead-measuring tool.

    Chris, your layout is growing nicely. I like its atmosphere - great how you captured this!

    The photo Steve mentioned is also my favorite. I love that grass between the rails. You almost hear the grasshoppers chirp in the hot, lazy afternoon... :cool:

    In this yard there are no poles. Are they coming later or do you switch your yard by a non-electric loco?

    Thankyou so much

    For your encouraging comments:)

    We all try so hard to "get The right feel" when we start to redo a section, Thanks again.

    The yard will be overhead Ron, I was going to have a Diesael switching yard but decided against it,, Overhead,,,, I just got to have it:D
    I did the street first so I would`nt damage the front overhead;)
    Its going to look great when you look under the overhead in that yard I can`nt wait.

    Hi Steve that "tool" is great for Pantagraph overhead, if trolley poles were to be used I would have do it differently at the pulloffs.(Switches)
