Steve: I seem to remember (maybe) that you had both mining and logging on your layout. Maybe you should also think about adding a few company houses to the layout; you know, the "little people" need a place to live. I looked at these company houses for my layout: http://www.walthers.com/exec/productinfo/195-111 They are 3.5" x 2", so a rather small footprint. I liked you selections of other buildings; I think I looked at them as well. Keep up the good work!
