I've made more progress on my layout. I'm almost done with the track, (as soon as I get the EZ track left-hand turnouts in from Trainworld, then I'll be set) and I'm about to begin wiring the layout. After that I'll add scenery and structures, which are the part that are the most fun, to me, at least.

I fooled around with a new addition to my layout, and came up with this shot:


That was the first shot that I've made that hints at what the layout will become.

Note: There will be a backdrop mounted behind the background buildings.

What is the time era of your layout?
And I just got a steal, I would of payed just about $60.00 for 20 things of flex-track. But at a antqiues store for only $25.00 and it came with beding. Plus my mom gave them old pots and pans, and then it was only $10.00- and I got a Delaware and Hudson caboose for only $2.00. Plus they had early Linoel from the 1940s and 30s. And American Flyer. Even a train example for a train investor. In addition, an O scale EMD SD45-2 for CP, with a UP boxcar and flatcar, a Pennsy caboose, Reading open hopper and some other boxcar, track, and transformer from Williams, for only $55.00.
 Wink You'll find anything anywhere, even if it's not as it appears.

Are your twenty sections of flex track nickel silver or brass?

Well it works in as good shape as nickel, so I think it's okay.
 Wink I do prefer E-Z track with nickel.

I like the trackside post. I also see you have an E-Z track crossover.

A local headed by Missouri Pacific GP7 # 4125 waits for the hotshot cattle train headed by MoPac FA-2 #352 to pass in Emhurst, Texas.




Meanwhile, in Hawk's Point, TX, Santa Fe 44-tonner #464 switches the gravel mine complex.

Very nice shaft, I want that Tonner though, and that ALCO in ATSF. Your very good at weathering I see. And the way you post it makes it like it's a shedule being show by some documentary group, good work Paul.
