Beautiful model building, Randy!

Like a close up of that Litchfield flat with lumber load.

I second Jim's "Beautiful model building" comment.
And in the "Show us more . . . "category, I would love to hear a bit about your lovely #57.

And I third Jim's comments!

Also, do you have a current track plan for your layout you can share? I'm always interested in how people translate the C&S into their available space.

Thanks, Darrell! I looked there but overlooked his layout somehow. My mistake.

Randy, I'm impressed with how you've used the space so effectively. It feels far more expansive than the space should allow. A really great concept and layout for single person operation.

Randy,

Excellent model building and great progress on your layout. You’ve used your available space wisely to create the feel of the C&S in 1915. Narrow gauge modeling requires a commitment of time, space, resources and skill to accomplish what you’ve created. Thank you for sharing your work with us.
