    Evening Folks,

    Some progress on the layout, The wiring is complete with isolated sidings and am working on interior building lighting. MRC sound boxes next. I am not happy with the roads, the are more like confused asphalt highway than country mud.

    The genral idea is a rural branchline with some logging industry. Mainly for the kids, mainly.

    Benchwork is a little high and will be lowering for the kids.

    Blasst is tough because has no road bed and so profile is tough to maintain. But gives me something to work on.

    Hi Sean, the layout is lookin' good.:thumb: You had me worried for a minute, though: I thought that maybe you were using the kids to hold up the layout.:D If they maintain their interest in trains as they get older, they'll have a hobby that will keep them interested for a lifetime. None of my kids are much interested in trains, but the grandkids really seem to enjoy them.

    That idea i 100% positive and a investment in the future :)
    I suppose that playing with trains are something that we all want to do so let the little man be little. Soon he will grow up and hopefully build his own layout.

    I hope too see more pics soon :wave:
