Ya know hanging out on the tracks like that with a camera and an express train coming straight at you could get you killed! LOL!!! Great layout!!! I rode the NYC Subway a fair amount in my younger days and loved every minute of it. The subways were and still are my favorite. You have put a lot of great time consuming work into your layout and it truly shows!

Hello Will

Thank you  for your ( to Joe Frank )  continuous support and compliments --  I guess am now considered the NY Model  EL & Trolley Guy - Joe "F" -  and the NY Model Subway Guy is I guess now considered - Joe "P"  !!  

Joe P has been to my house and layout in person --  and we both have large train rooms  (Joe P's is somewhat bigger (wider) than mine) and thus large Rapid Transit layouts.  But as you can see from Joe P's ongoing work  (mine started way back in 1984 and was finished by early 1987) over the past years - thru his "progress" photos & videos " - it's all involving A HECK OF A LOT OF INTENSIVE WORK - TIME-  $$$$$$$$ and DEDICATION !

But, in the end  (the ecstasy AFTER the long agony, heh) -- the end result is worth it.

Hello Will !

Yes, I relocated to Philly 50 years ago (from NY City)!

The "early" days of the internet, heh ?  Well, back then since about 1999 I used what then was called MSN "webtv" internet-receiver-device (box) to access the internet via my television set and old dial up (heh) phone service.   It was  a novelty back then for always being  virus free and its ease of operation -  My webtv hosted "Page Builder" Website for the layout featured very poor quality res. photos.  I finally went to a computer in 2009 and started a new website for the layout and digital --quality shot photos.  If you have not seen my newer layout-website developed about 2010 -- here is the link to its ALBUMS page -- with albums of photos (and one of videos) based upon the subject matter of the photos - and the link to it's MAIN PAGE (all newest photos get uploaded to top of page one on that section)

The old webtv @msn website for my layout (and its fuzzy poor re photos) has been gone since 2008 -- as MSN closed down the webtv system because it was not able to be upgraded,  updated to compete with "real PC computers"

So if you have not seen my newest site since 2008-09 - well- check it out now.  And while you are there -- click on to my "FAVES" (ie: FAVORITE Photos)  page link - and see photos of El layouts and EL structures and modeling work of close "Fellow EL Modeler" pals of mine.  A LOT to see there that is amazing modeling work !
