    You need to add people to make it look more realistic.

    Not bad! The weathering on your locos looks very convincing and your track ballasting is excellent! :)

    How did you get that Marx/Lionel to run on 2 rail dc?

    Where's the edge of this layout? Have you planned access hatches yet? Also, are you using forced perspective with the small scale trailer park in the backround? Boy this scene id VERY deep! :D

    i custom build the internals to replicate a HO scale 2 rail DC, i also did aot of work to make the track look real


    :) thanks!

    i have my ways of getting around it :D

    it's pretty hard to get any less realistic than that, people might just subtract? sign1

    You must spend a bundle on Woodland Scenics trees and ground foam. :)

    Looks like a staging yard is hidden by the overpass in the far distance of the first shot, I love the backdrop, but how much did you spend on paint? :D

    Also In the distance to the right, that house looks like it's from model power! I think they call it Grandma Moses' House...

    In the second photo, did you manage to scratchbuild ALL those buildings yourself? WHEW! :eek:

    I was going to say, gosh, is it real or not...but the accumate couplers were a dead giveaway. Obviously z gauge on HO.

    don't you hate it when you take an awesome picture to only realize you'd left something in the background where it shouldn't be?
