My newest project is this retaining wall put in for erosion control.
Well now that is a great looking wall there Jeffrey
GREAT looking wall Jeffrey:thumb: , i have been noticing some real nice work lately on your layout:winki::smilie: .

Amtrak #62 at the depot siding in Elmwood while a double stack with autos passes on the main.
Great looking wall!

New Amtrak service starts on the Ballantyne Branch
Charlotte Post Observer - Late Edition

Amtrak has been testing the newest Amfleet cars on a new proposed route from Charlotte to Raleigh today and expect to be running the test train well into the night. Railroad officials would not comment on how often the service would be offered, but suggested that daily service from the Queen City to the Research Triangle might begin as early as next week. Amtrak engineers said that initial test runs would utilize a P42 in Phase IV colors, but would be replaced with a newer HHP-8 when all the over-track electrical lines are in place and the electric engine arrives in Ballantyne sometime next week. Norfolk Southern, the giant southern railroad company that owns rights to the tracks, said in a press release that, "We welcome the return of passenger service to the rails," continuing to state that,"they would offer morning and evening use of their rails to Amtrak in return for track options in other areas of the northeast." Fare and expected ridership numbers were not available at this time, but Amtrak officials were excited about adding service between these two important Carolina cities and even discussed connecting service to Atlanta and Washington DC - augmenting the route pioneered by the Southern Railway and assigned to Amtrak in the late 1970's.
Great start to this week..Nice pics everyone..:thumb:
A blast from the past...an all blue lashup, just like the good ol days.
Here's a culvert scene I'm working on. I hope to have it completed by next weekend. That depends on the state of my health.
Great photos everybody! Keep 'em comin'!
Here we see C&HV GP50 #500 rolling east on Trackage rights on NS from Buckeye yard headin' for home rails at Obitz,Ohio.#500 has 19 cars in tow..15 loads and 4 empties.
Busy weekend for me guys. Allot of Air Force stuff on a Marine base. Rumor has it, the Blue Angels pilots are unhappy this year, because the Thunderbirds were booked, and the Blue Angels haven't missed a show here for 32~ years.
Jeffrey, nice scenery details. Love your culvert scene.
Deano, I can’t remember having seen this slug before. Did you do the conversion? Looks great.:thumb:
Shaun, nice scene.
Herc, beautiful car. Every time I see your pics I can hardly to believe it’s n-scale.
Mark, beautiful B&O lashup :thumb:. Wish I had enough engines and space to to something like that .
Brakie, I love that C&HV paint scheme.
I worked a bit on details today.
Just north of Flint, Michigan is an 1880s village with operational blacksmith's shop, sawmill, etc. Starting within that village are the tracks that were used by what the locals called the "Huckleberry Railroad". It got that name because people could step off the train to pick huckleberries and step back on when the train returned. This train is a re-creation of that old railroad that now operates purely as a tourist attraction.
The train makes a trip of several miles several times a day. It is interesting to see the modern crossing gates with that old equipment.
Sorry the pics aren't better, but it was an extremely bright day with a lot of contrast.

We moved a new section into Jim's layout today, only two more to go! I took some pictures of chasing a train around his layout.
It's interesting to see the F-117s there. They're all in the process of retiring.
Here's something I'm working on in my spare time. It's an all paper structure (with the exception of the base).I found the link to the plans on another forum and printed one out and decided to cut it out and build it. I still have to put on some details and install the roof. This is what I have so far.
I hope to have it completed by tomorrow night.
Here it is on the layout after the roof was put on. I wanted to see how it would look.
