    Fantastic Mike! GREAT LAYOUT -I am especially impressed with the artwork on the skyboards. Your backgrounds provide so much depth. Should compliment the photographer as well.

    Thanks Bill , I did the photography and all I can say is what my dad used to say
    " Best girl I could get with the car I had " , but thanks.
    I also combined commercial backdrops and some of my own painting and the above quote would also apply to my ability.

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    I dunno Mike, its hard to provide constructive criticism for a layout that is so nicely done! I suppose there might always be room for little detailed mini scenes with people along the road and rails. Maybe a cement company employee on that neatly done stairway...a couple more desert brush plants on the dry hillsides, a broken telegraph pole supported by a new one...that sort of thing..... A very nice looking layout and an inspiration to the rest of us!

    Only thing I can think to add is some protesters that are complaining about the RR building so close to an ancient archeological site (which is a very nice touch :thumb: ). :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Gee Mike, having seen the variety of projects on your layout and the precision with which you've built it, I wouldn't even dream of suggesting any form of constructive criticism.
    How to you find the time to make such a good job of such a massive undertaking?
    :D You even chose the right area to model (BNSF !! :D ) ok ok, so it's Sante Fe but who's counting?
    Well done sir! :thumb:

    Thanks Chris , The bridge is a Rix and each piece was hand bent to make the arch.
