    Actually, I am!! sign1 I'm puzzled by your Era...It looks, due to the HEAVY weathering on most of the stuff, like the late 1950's, correct? The Caboose diorama is a seperate venture, right?

    Do you have an engine house?

    Also, you might want the extensive vining (very cool BTW! :cool: ) to start on the bottom of the building, and work it's way across the roof.

    A suggestion: The athearn Streamliner is too new (in that era espically) to even begin rusting, as it's stainless steel. Could I make a suggestion of getting an OLD Time wood combine, or baggage, and putting it up in blocks? :)

    Lastly, LET's SEE SOME MORE PICS!!! This looks great, and I'd love to see some of the city!! PLEEEEASEE?! :D

    Well, The GP9 was manufactured from 1954-1963. That immediately puts you in the mid 1950's. If you wish to backdate your layout, Here's a list of 1930's-1940's Steam engines that are SP prototype:

    The Best of the bunch would be the IHC 2-6-0, which is modeled after the SP's Famous M-4 mogul. They pull well, look great and aren't expensive, look HERE:

    Other ones include old MDC kits (their 0-6-0, their "Harriman" 4-4-2/2-6-2/2-8-0 series)

    And the Cabforwards made by Rivarossi, BLI, and PCM.

    I didn't finish the doodlebug, because I scrapped the gutless Mehanotecnika motor, and put in the drive train from an Athearn GP-40. I'm planning to add sound with a cheapie MRC decoder, and Have dissected the shell, making one half an RPO (instead of the blanked out windows.) No progress photos yet..

    What else do you wish to know? :D

    Also: Here's some photos from my old layout, if you haven't seen them: http://www.the-gauge.com/showthread.php?t=22147&highlight=chronicles

    ....Or you could sell it to me! :p

    It's 1958, the last year for steam on the MV&P, on my old layout.

    My new layout can be flexible from 1940-1960, with 1955 being the year I'm aiming for,
