Superb work!

Room for a layout anywhere inside?

I have been to places "up nort" where that would be the mayor's "executive mansion."  Lacking only a wrecked school bus in the yard.

The whole scene is very well done! I like the chair on the front porch.

I like it, very excellent work. I wonder how many Hobos spent the night there? When does the crew come to rerail that switcher? I'd like to watch that. I believe I saw that property listed as ''A fixer-upper''.

I never noticed the switcher off the rails. Photographs don't lie, and the truth can be embarassing!LaughLaugh Still a great scene!

For those of us who either live, or have lived in Ohio and Indiana, that would be called a real "briar ranch"! A spoof on those residents south of the Ohio River.

Great job! At first I thought I was looking at a prototype.
