    • The lift bridge for the inclined track is completed..  Below is a shot of the first train over the bridge...

       

       

       

      The leased Cotton Belt GP-40 is hauling the ""Overlook local"" freight load behind it..  The bridge is hinged and swings up to the left in the picture..  This is the entrance into the layout from the east side of the basement, from the workshop area..

       

      More of Jane's art work of the sky can be seen in the background...  That is the north wall in the basement..

      Sean, that sky is all Jane's work...  She's done a fantastic job with it...

      For those asking about a ramp from the lower level to the upper.  Look right behind the hoppers on the right side of the picture on the lower level.  This ramp has been the start of the rise for quite sometime.  There may be more ramps, elevators, escalators and even skyways by the time this is done, but there is and has been a start floating around in his head for awhile.

      no such thing as to much power right Andy

      Actually have some new motive power for your place as well, just gotta save up for a while to do airwire installs in them, and a little bashing, but believe it or not they are diesel powered

      Diesel powered???   Are you sick???  Have you seen a Doctor????  I hope it's a good prognosis...   

      Gee Andy, how do you really feel?

       

      I am not into them newfangled, cantankerous, unproven, diesel-lectric thangs neither.

    • well, I'm definitely sick, but that's beside the point  I just keep telling myself its a gas mechanical under those modern looking hoods

      Actually, I got a pair of Pennsy S4's in trade for another engine I had. so far just track power, but one day I hope to get them on airwire and battery with sound for running down there. Maybe Jim will kidnap mine and they will return done hahaha

      That is a very impressive layout.  My basement layout is much smaller and only one level.  Do you have a way to go between levels?  I am learning JMRI on my layout and it has been fun.

      Jay

      Jay, yes, there is a ramp track on the backside of the south wall to run a train from the bottom layout portion to the top layout portion...  The inside layout (top portion) will be the yard area for the 40 ft freight cars, eventually...  Only the 40 ft cars will run on the top layout...
