Thank you Ray!, it looks to good to be true!
Question, where did you get those trees from?, I wonder if they make em in Z-scale
The trees are from Woodland Scenics. About Z gauge, I don't know. They come in a package from 2" to 6".
Woodland Scenics, perfect!
Wow Ray, I like the over view pictures! Nice work, now we can see where the trailer park is in relation to the rest of the layout! Keep those pictures coming!
WOW!! What can I say others haven't said already? Beautiful work Ray!! :thumb:
Thanks for showing your layout.
I don't know if you or SD90 has a better layout!:thumb:
Ray. That all looks so real

I hope somday I get my layout looking half as good as Ray's!
Ray, have you ever figured out how many feet of mainline you have there?
Went out to the building to figure about how much main line. Best I can figure, without measuring is 500 ft. X 2. Double mainline. As I can remember, I bought a LOT OF TRACK. The person I bougth from was very happy with me. Now the work is almost over I can enjoy running.
500 feet! That's alot Ray! How many boxes of flex did you go through? I've used 4 so far, and I think by the time I'm done, it will be 5. I bet your yard alone used 2 boxes!
Ray, your main yard, do you have a scetch of the track plan for it? I like big yards, and yours takes the cake for the biggest yard I've ever seen on a layout! It would be neat to see the way traffic flows in there.
That staging yard, (on page 4 of your thread) is INSANE! How long is it? Where on the layout is it located, we really need a track plan Ray!
Now that the layout is about finished, well I guess it's never finished, I will spend some time working on a track plan and post it for everyone.
The yard area is 26 1/2 feet long, and the stageing area is 29 feet long. I hope this answers some of your questions. About the number of boxes of track, I don't remember. It was a LOT! The ATLAS track, 100 in a box. PECO track, 25 ina box.
Some more pictures
Lets try again.
Posting is sure slow tonight, here is another.
One more time.
Don't know what is the problem, I'll try again tomarrow.
