Hey guys. I took a few weeks off to refresh my batteries. Here are a few pics of my new layout addition that I can now share. For everyone that gets the magazine, you can read my article this month (RUN 316) that documents the completion of my layout. The main feature was 3 months ago in RUN 313. My final area I called "North Platte". While it looks nothing like the real town, it evokes a lot of memories for me. Enjoy the pics and have a great Sunday.

This simple commercial structure was built from a craftsman kit as I approached completion of my 12’-by-8’ layout, and sits beside the outer loop of track. There was not sufficient space for a larger or more elaborate building in this location, so this model, with its trackside exterior staircase, was included. There are no large industrial buildings on either of my layouts since I have chosen to model small town and rural scenes. Nothing has been changed on this layout since it was completed in 2004.

Just completed a scratch build. This is a wood ice house that replaces a Berkshire Valley plaster ice house that was damaged during shipping to a customer.

The 'decals' are normal bond paper printed with the printer's 'best settings' thinned with 150 grit sand paper then glued to the building with white glue.

Working through some of my areas. I'm a big Dungeons and Dragons nerd, so I am using the minis on my layout (almost the correct size).

Here's some adventurers guarding the bank:

Alleyway behind the bank is creating some racket:

Trains rolling past the gazebo with a dragon perched on the mountaintop (photo was taken prior to above inner town completion, as seen above):
