drunk last man standingFor me a layout is a detailed stage to show off your trains. Every area should have something interesting, and a story. I would love to see yours. Don

I call this "last man standing". It's in my ghost town. I don't think he knows where he is....

Backyards and areas behind buildings are important to me, too, even if they are not available to visitors at first glance...4b

For me, I like guests in the trainroom to have to crouch-down and lean-in here-n-there to be able to see everything...IMG_0099IMG_0106and I do not give tours. Everything has to be discovered by the visitors, themselves, to the railroad neighborhoods...IMG_0096-xCOALBOYS

I've always liked military trains.  These pics tell the story of wounded soldiers returning from Korea at a stop in California in the early 1950's.  MattHospital train in Beawslaiw #4Hospital train in Beawslaiw #8Hospital train in Beawslaiw #7Hospital train in Beawslaiw #6Hospital train in Beawslaiw #5Hospital train in Beawslaiw #12

Roger Wasson, Every vignette you have shown us here is fabulous, as good looking as any of us would want to have on our own layouts, I am sure. BravO!

Arnold, the Troy Savings Bank and Cohoes Commons.  Have you spent much time in that part of New York?

Yes, attended Albany Law School, and my wife was born in Cohoes and grew up in the Lansingburg section of Troy, NY.

The waterfall was made using a photo I took of Looking Glass Falls across the mountain from here. Its a 65' tall full flowing falls within easy view of the road. I blended white paint to have it flow from the headwaters of the stream to good effect.

If you look closely you may see a sunbather on the rock to the right of the person in the boat.

My heart is warm with the friends I make, 

And better friends I'll not be knowing;

Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take,

No matter where it's going.
