Oh and thanks guys for the welcome back stuff. I missed reading all you progress and activities. I have a lot of work to do this Holiday season, and won't be able to spend as much time on it as I had hoped. I keep telling them I retired in June, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. Well it will make the Christmas Season Happier/not quite as broke. lol

I have been threatening to make a freeway across the layout and finally started messing with it tonight. Got the main turn on it done and roughed int the layout. No paint on it yet so the white stands out a little too much
You will have to build a freeway for my layout before you high tail it to Utah Very impressive but your layout is too.

You need to post pictures of your layout asap.

We hang out at the same Hobby Shop, Dynamic Hobbies in Hemet. Loconut is into operations and had a giant yard and too many bridges to count. He is an avid railroad guy, and knows all the locomotives and such. He is a true modeler. Unlike me, who just throws stuff against the wall and hope it doesn't fall off.

Sorry Poppet, I’m going to disagree with you on your last comment. I started reading this thread last night. All I can say is wow! You are more talented than you know. This is your first layout??! I wish I had half as much talent scenery wise. You truly have a gift. I’m going to continue reading, and can’t wait to see what happens next!

Andy

Thanks Steamfan. I just have so much fun doing it. Keeps me off the couch when I am not riding my bicycle. I try to follow all of you guys and take any tip I can get. Unfortunately no one ever gives me money. lol

Thanks Loconut. I have ideas now of how to do it. Would have been a lot easier if i had though about a couple of years ago. .
