Serows/Paul, I'd love to see more! You have that gently rolling terrain above the tunnel crafted in a way I have not seen before, and I consider it masterful. The groundcover and landscape everywhere appears to be a skill of yours. Do share more of everything, because the way you have situated those two smoking steam trains in that photo (focused on here to underscore my applause for the whole vista and its skilled landscaping, especially) shows a man who knows how to play, in my opinion, and craft a scene.20170329_123033_zpsmeen6gk2 [2)

Fabulous photo!

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

Thank you Frank for your gracious comments, compliments like that coming from a master such as yourself really mean allot and thank you Arnold for your kind comment too.

Here is today's photo.....

I really can't take all of the credit, I have allot of help....

In front of the mountain is the American Flyer illuminated station and a couple of HO Scale buildings:

Since the buildings are a little in the distance and in front of a mountain and tunnel, they work eventhough in HO. BTW, the buildings were already made and dirt cheap that I bought from a local train store that was happy to have me take it off their hands.

One of the buildings came with an already made "fire and smoke" coming out of the chimneys on its roof:

Hey Arnold!  Pretty cool looking scene!  The piping mixed with the tank cars gives this scene a refinery sort of effect!  Nice!!

Removed it in 2009 due to spouses health issues and needing the room for a rehab facility. I moved down the hall to a 9x19 attic and built a 9x16 round-the-wall layout in Feb. 2010. But it has essentially lain dormant since I also developed a debilitating health issue right after I wired it and ran trains. Now trying to get up and going again.  Place is a mess(see below)IMG_2041!

Looks great, never mind the items on the table as it will get done when it is ready. This is therapy my freind, take your time and get out of reality and into you Train World for a while

Dewey I like your new layout!  And I hope you find the time and ability to move forward with it! Im a Southern fan also!!   I just had to take down my 6x12 that was in one of our two living rooms and move into a 17x11 room that I am doing an around the wall similar to yours!

Thanks for your comments regarding the attic layout guys. I'm old but too dumb and stubborn to give up.The real agony of demolition was in 2008 for taking down my 15 year old airborne operation in the kitchen of our mountain cottage in western N.C.. When I knew we had to move to access better Med facilities I had a fallback position with the upstairs layout at the Greensboro Condo. But alas square footage needs and health circumstances forced the tear down of it as already noted.
