    Great pictures everyone!

    Steve - my boys still think your water is real!

    Josh - those Amtrak diesels look great!

    Chessie - really nice scenery around the tracks...I'm taking lessons from your pics.

    Ralph - PC all the way! Those rails look perfectly weathered.

    Kurt - you really need to post more pictures. Your attention to detail is something to see.

    Deano - Seeing your detailed engines makes me seriously reconsider Nscale for HO. Boy they look great.

    Tom - That siding work is great. I like the telephone poles, the ground cover, and that cement plant is really well done.
