Haha.....I was thinking the same thing! As far as those controls. The lights, I want them at my control station.

This is my first attempt at some ground cover. It's a minor area between the tracks.

Dang. If that's just playing, I can't wait to see what you do when you are serious.

Really nice.

Does the branch you are modeling have any abandoned industrial sidings that no longer connect to the main line? There are a pantload of them on the main line and I always thought they would be interesting to model.

Thanks VegasN! Nikola, there are abandoned sidings, but I don't have room to model them. I wish I did, that sounds interesting.

Excellent work on the ground cover, Andy. I'd say you advanced from beginner to accomplished very quickly.

I've added a few streets and sidewalks. Need to finish the junction area in Mineola. I also added the signal bridge and connected it to the system.
