Rockin' it old school
Posted by Postwar Paul on Sunday, September 19, 2021 5:09 PM

I have been banging away on the indoor layout, setting up a new American Flyer loop, and trying to make some headway on the scenery. Haven't worked on the Garden line much, although Trains run every single weekend ! My daughter gave me these artificial stones for my Birthday. Just what the Doctor ordered !

Paul, mice to hear from you.  Those rocks look great, and I bet they are lots easier to move than the real thing!  You should be able to make some nice view breaks with these.  - Eric

Thanks! Really enjoying running these trains. I think I have just about everything I could want or need train wise, but thousands of fun little train projects, both indoors and out. I want to add some lights to an LGB caboose. And eventually I'll get back to working on this garden line again.
