Thanks to your help, Cary Tearose, I am able to post a black and white photo to the Black and White Wednesday thread.  This is a shot of my 1930's era IMG_0441 [2)Super Streets trolley layout.  As you can see, it's incomplete (gotta lot of paving to do), and wire to string. I use both 3-rail tinplate trolleys and (when the wire is up) 12-volt scale models.  The smaller flanges on the scale stuff work well on the Super Streets track.  Structures are a mix of  kits and scratch-built, including some I built from Frank Ellison's plans in the old Model Builder magazine.  It's small, but I have fun with it.

You actually had time to play in the back yard??

First time to fire it up this year... and it's in September.  I'm beginning to think that if I am too busy to run the steamer, then I am probably just too busy...

Here's some shots from 40 years ago of the Wyomissing PA Mall layout. We ran four trains on the two other loops. Two street cars in the area aside the Roundhouses. A coal train in the wiggly mountain loop next to the Power house. A commuter train around 921 Scenic Park. There was a non operating Lionel race set next to the commuter line. Plus an operating Lionel airplane flying about. It was up for the month of January 1977. By the way all the trains and accessories were original, no repaints.
