    There were a couple of carnival modules. In the second photo a pair of "Shark Noses" hauls a 41 car coal train. Burning building scenes also added some drama and good modeling.

    one of the many yards on the layout. The train in the forground is on the red. It is powered by 4 SD80's and is hauling about 80 freight cars around the layout. I only saw it once so I don't know if he made it all the way around. The next photo is from a club in Texas (El Paso - I believe). and another from the El-paso group - Ewing Oil refinery

    The next one is from a group in Albuquerque, NM showing a scene with a tour group looking at the Native American ruins.

    Another bridge structure. Working off of a photo the builder cut over 3000 individual piece of wood from a single peice of pine board. I did not write down how big the board was.

    Last one for a bit. 2 modules with lots of bridges and trains. 3 trains operate on individual loops above and below the "nTrak" lines. He uses 10" curves behind the scenes to loop the trains. And a well modelled railroad ferry taking on a string of cars.

    See you in a few hours.

    Great Stuff!!!!!

    The only way besides posting the pics here, would be to post the pics on another server (Railpics)?? and link to them here. Otherwise keep them as small as possible & post about 10 - 15 a thread, so the people that "dial-up" wont have too much trouble. :D :D

    Great Pictures! Thanks for sharing - I've been looking through all your picture topics.

    I was especially pleased that you got a picture of a module from our N-trak club (Northeast N-trak) on post #25 - The bridges canyon module. The member who built it (Bob P) rolled it out for the first time at a local train show last December (2003). I helped him set it up and was in awe of it. I was only in my first year of membership in this club and I was sure I was looking at something that was the best of the best. The crowds thought so too. They were two to three rows deep around those modules throughout the show.

    It won "Best in Show" the following month at Winterfest 2004. It also won first place at the Chantilly show.

    Wish I could have been there…
