    That is the hanging bridge that is about right under the royale gorge suspension bridge. If you are ever in the southern colorado region you can either ride the train, raft the arkansas river, or go down the incline railway in the royale gorge park to see it.

    more progress. I finished (almost) the right front corner. I just put two lines with an engien house and munitions depot. I need to get some cannons or something. For now I put in the two tanks that came with the building. I touched up some small things around the layout and added more rock face in the gorge, it's still not done. I did get a new set of d&rgw passernger cars and two used boxcars. I need to get either the two 4-4-0s like i want or convert my mikado to knuckle couplers so i can pull my passenger cars, and just pull the freight cars with my disel wich looks strange without a b unit. I have no clue what the disel is i got it a few years ago (around 4) at a show in a trade up.

    Your doing some fantastic work there. Can you tell about the passenger cars I've been looking for some shorter ones of that style in HO. Size quality?:wave:

    I almost forgot hopefully this weekend(3 day)I will get to start scratchbuilding some of the buildings in that last picture. I was thinking i could use those paper ones as a guide of sorts.

    Excellent job Collyn. Looks really good. :thumb:

    Also an interesting mix, modern containers in the forground, 1880s overland coaches and buildings up the hill. Personally I like the pioneer stuff. :D
