...A UP NEW YEAR...I LIKE THAT!!!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: THANKS MILES!!!
Cool pics guys:thumb:
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR
WOW, GEC, it looks like you have a whole empire in HO around the tree! you even have industries too?! Nice! :thumb:
Thanks Deano! thought you'd like that! Also say it aloud, it makes more sense that way!
LOVED THE PICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
lol yeah, but its tough to run! the HO track is un-even because of the floor, and my passenger cars randomly uncouple. So much for push pull operations! sadly i have to tear it down tonight to make room for the presents.
the O-27 in the middle has its usual hang ups (tublar pin rail pulls apart to easily.
I do have a few videos, but none are that good. I better make a nice one before i take it all down!
A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Nice shots of some great work!
AWSOME Shots Deano, Love those CNW's!!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Deano, you got tower 55 engines? Are they worth it?
Very nice shots, Deano. I like the third picture most. And engine #3134 looks great … mmmhh, and #833 isn’t too shabby either … and #1344 looks great too .......... . Looking forward to see more next year .
Steven, THANK YOU! for the complement.
Josh, THANKS!, i thought you would like the CNW units:thumb:.

I love those DD40s! Never even heard of them til just a few months ago.
Deano, I would like to see what you would do with an actual layout, like a 4x8 even. I like your switching layout, and you have a cool idea with this small diorama base you have too, but I want to see you build something bigger too (I guess your dad's layout counts, thats cool too). Speaking of which, have any recent pics of you dad's layout?
THANKS STEVEN! i have had several layouts:thumb:, and would like another big one again. sure my current 30''x8' switching layout is fine, but i really miss having a "railfanning" layout, you know, so i can watch the trains run continuously through the scenery. i have thought how i could achieve this at my current place, but unless i get rid of my bed, it just wont happen here.
i have been making some progress on dads layout, and have finished his engine:thumb:, no pics though, hope to have some new pics up this week. THANKS! -Deano
