Show me more track. Maybe some overgrown and not in use track?

This is a former crossover on  double track that has been turned into a passing siding:

There is a good bit of track in this scene from the Atlanta Interlocking Model Railroaders modular HO scale layout.

Show me some more track please.

 Show me some more track please.

-Kevin

Here's some rather large track! This is the roundhouse and turntable on Jack McBride's G Scale CPIRR, with the mainline running around the back out of the yard, which is just off camera to the right. I took this photo while visiting and operating the layout last November with the NEB&W.

 

Show me a yard.

May I say there are some superb models and modeling by all.  Love it.

Here are three of my London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS)  locomotives in the yard.  Princess Class Lady Patricia,  Duchess Class  Duchess of Sutherland and Jubilee Class Galatea

Next -  A Scenic section.

David: "Next - A Scenic section.

Not particularly scenic, but interesting, none the less.

New York Central E7 #4034 at the head of a short Mail and Express train. These short mail and express trains usually consisted of a half-dozen baggage/express/mail cars and one passenger coach. 

Another scene with multiple steamers, please.

Oh bummer... that building was built by a late friend of mine. I need to fix that so it can be included on the layout.

The Suncoast American Flyer Enthusiast group have these GULF tank cars on their display layout.

I need to get a better, and more recent picture, of this model train.

This is a Polish Armoured Artillery Train that was captured and put into German service in World War 2.

NOTE: That is NOT a swastika on the locomotive in its international air identification roundel. Like many historical wargamers, I refuse to use that heraldry on my German miniatures. My German Military identification marker is a black fisted gauntlet in a white circle on a red field.

I also do not use Confederate Flags on my Secession States American Civil War miniatures. My Southern regiments fly historically accurate regional banners, but no CSA national flags or battle banners will ever be flown by my servicemen.

That picture was taken on my cardboard layout three years ago.

It is Sunday... how about showing me a church?

Not much church action while I was away today.

Here is one. This church is on the N scale in-store layout at Trainmaster in Buford, Georgia.

Sunday is about over and a new week is beginning, so please show me the beginning of a train.

Looking over te new Harwood & Winter builder's yard.  Ground  cover still to do especially around the workmen.    Trees behind.

Next -   I have been fascinated by American railroads  'floor to ceiling'.    Anyone  got a picture?

I'll start things off with a scene showing Amtrak equipment:

Yes, floor-to-height scenery is not very common. It looks great in photographs, but adds all kinds of problems without much in the way of model railroad improvement.

It is difficult to access structure/wiring behind it, it is easily prone to damage, there is no where to mount controls, and you are limited to one kind of scenery (rocky cliff) that does not appeal to everyone.
