tHE END OF 2003 is around the corner, I found an old photo to show you beginners that we all start from nothing. 1st two photos which are large so click on the url shows Jan 2000 when I was just starting dirt work on the NTCGRR. Also thinking ,, what have I gotten myself into????[V][?]

Note couple of the trees and how they have grown.
Now todays shot 12/30/03 almost four years later.

So PLEASE be encouraged, some of us have been in this hobby for 12 years or so ,and on our fouth GRR. And it always gets better.[^] Its not the size that counts, its the FUN!!!!![:p][:D]

Is it REAL? or Just 1:29 scale?

Long live Outdoor Model Railroading.

Marty,
I can't believe the change in your layout. I read your article in the Feb 2003 issue of Garden Railways and really enjoyed every bit. All your information and pictures has inspired me in every way. I hope your railway expands in 2004 and Happy New Year![:D][8D][:)][swg]

Hey Marty,
Thanks for the shots. Funny how when we get something done we forget how much work it was. What a difference! I'll bet you walked around that area a lot wondering which way the trains will run, where the buildings will go, should I make an operators area here, there? Decisions, decisions. But the fun after! Oh yeah! Later eh...Brian.
