Patrick,

That first photo of the kids playing by the tracks just says "childhood" to me. It's a great shot and camera angle.  And your weathering on the hopper and mud-splattered truck is superior.  

Looks like those LP put in a hard day's work today!

Tomlinson - thanks so much for your very nice comments about my photos ... and taking the time to do so!!  I like that these photos say things like "childhood" to you.  I often played down near the railroad tracks when I was a kid so they say "childhood to me too".  I'm glad you liked the weathering job on the hopper and the truck too!

Cheers and Happy Railroading,

Hi Arnold, I especially enjoy that the path worn by the runners from base-to-base is irregular in shape, appearing to have been worn by happenstance, as in real life. IMO, that's a very nice realistic touch, sir!

Heavens!  For a minute there I thought it was (Team Track) Tuesday!  Patrick, as always, your submissions and attention to detail, weathering, RR operations, and scenery astonish!  But you must say more about what is going on in that last photograph.

(Also, does the Patsburg Board of Health know about that dairy operation?  Looks like they're a front for making bathtub gin !)

O-gauge Hi-rail layouts with scenic details and people figures in naturalistic  poses are a source of inspiration and a challenge to the imagination of other hobbyists. Although my 19x16-feet L-shaped layout is rather plain by comparison, I added many posed figures to the buildings and action accessories.

My thinking is ... make up for the lack of scenic details with some mini-scenes using figures by WOODLAND SCENICS and MODEL POWER.
