Finally able to contribute!

Technically though, it's more Rear End than Front End. Though the Southern did like running things long hood forward, I believe the GP35 was set up Short Hood forward, though I could be wrong!

I think you are showing really good instincts with your scenery there, including in particular, the buildings and the groundcovers. There is a certain maturity to your approach. IMO.

Front ends traveling thru Moon Township, USA.....

Awesome. I want to buy a place in Moon Township and live there with my wife. Now only if we can change to O Scale.

You'd certainly be welcome; however, I don't think you would be happy, ultimately, since all the folks in town do a whole lot  of standing and sitting around, and you seem like an active fellow. They don't move much; in fact, not at all. Even the traffic is at a standstill. Plus, you'd be looking at the same spot opposite where you'd be situated, and that would get boring very quickly for you, no doubt. But it was a nice thought! Thanks!

There is, however, a new house being built right next door to us, that you might like; however, it is taking them forever   to get the job finished. It almost seems like they are just standing around a lot.IMG_0187

Very well thought out, Frank, and hilarious.

The idea of becoming an O Scale figure on Frank's layout reminds me of the kind of thing Rod Serling would do in The Twilight Zone. After all, we spend so much time with our O Gauge trains and layouts, it would be poetic justice to end up as an O Scale figure in that little world. That TV show terrified me as a young child, mostly because of the eerie music and eye ball floating in outer space at the beginning of the show.

One final thought about this: Rod Serliing would have it so that those model railroaders who took good care of their O Scale figures would later on be animated and very happy when they become little people in a heaven-like layout,  but those modelers who abused their O Scale figures would end up as inanimate tortured souls in that other place way down under that starts with the letter "H."

LOL
