    Well then, everyone is invited to my house to help me with my layout! I need someone to paint the backdrop, someone to cut the rest of the cross bracing for under the benchwork, someone to sculpt the terrain, someone to show me the ins and outs of laying track, making ponds and bayous, ballasting, on and on and on.

    I'll barbeque some burgers if yall come on down...

    Now that would be cool if we could have a layout party that way.
    You're all welcome to come over to my place too.

    Ok if I win the Power Ball lottery this week I'll get us a big warehouse next to the tracks so we can build the biggest layout we can imagine (and railfan too) and your all invited. goldtoth1 But don't hold your breath the only thing I've ever won was a plastic cooler when I was 12 in little league sign1

    Not really private - We're all in this thread too :) I'm just linking to all the threads from the first post above :)
    the advantage is - each thread has only one person's progress in it - We're trying to see if it helps the continuity.. :)

    Also - If you go to each thread and subscribe to them - you will get e-mail updates whenever someone posts - so you dont have to visit every thread every day :)

    I thought this would be a good idea - - setting this party up a bit differently than the past ones.. But i think i only got it half right - I'm going to move all the individual threads into photog and leave this one here for a few days then move it too... :) :)

    thanks for the suggestions Ray & Don :) :)

    Count me in!

    February should be a big month for me. Last night, I got my hands dirty with my first attempt at weathering...the Nickel Plate Road caboose #727 now looks like it's seen plenty of action. I plan to start weathering my entire rolling stock roster (all 8 of them :oops:) and get my "benchwork" done.
