After I finish the paint and lettering, I need to buy an O gauge cowboy since fireman Dee Smith always wore a western hat on the job. 

Absolutely the perfect detail, Rob!  That's some nice work, and our (western) hats are off to you for keeping the QA&P alive in O gauge.

Today the Tinplate Trackers of Austin Texas tore down our modular layout and closed the books on our 10th Holiday Display. It's been another awesome year filled with trains, hidden minions, candy canes, and smiling faces.

Our first 3 years we were sponsored by the 2nd Street District in Austin. For the last 7 years we have graciously been hosted by the City of Round Rock and the Downtowner Gallery. We open the Friday after Thanksgiving and go til around New Year. We shared our love of trains with roughly 18.5 thousand people this holiday season.

As a fundraiser we rent trains to the aspiring young and young at heart engineers for a small donation. This has allowed us to do substantial improvements to our layout and trailers.

Here are a few pictures I took of the layout. Thank you all for another wonderful year!
