    • thank you
      The logs have been scraped, the base of the chimney is made of 4 plates of 4mm, grooved and painted with black, gray and white. The chimney is made of 4 plates of 4mm and covered with wallpaper taken on the net

    • That looks great.  Did you distress the logs or did they come that way?  What is the chimney and block foundation made of?

      this last pic is my favorite, it's nothing elaborate but I can't help but smile a wide grin whenever I look at this photo.

      If your interested, I have 2 boxes of 5' USAT NIB that I'm trying to sell. 


      Craig,  Thanks for the info but all the track I am putting down now is aluminum..   It's cheaper than brass, and noone is going to step on it in the basement at 45 inches off the floor...    


      When the weather turns warmer I will be working on the switchback up the hill..   That will be a mix of brass and Stainless, but I have all that in the basement..

      Yeah, Jon...  was the second one I wanted, along with 5 others I was going to post..

      Dad are these the ones ?


       Son, yes those are and thank you for posting them..


      Below is a shot of the north west wall with the switches to the different locations..  First right hand switch at the bottom is the main line..

      The second right hand switch goes into the freight yard and the track at the back along the door runs to the industrial area.




      The below shot shows the Main line in the foreground along with the start of a siding..  The next six tracks is the Freight yard tracks...


      In the background, you can see some of the tracks of the industrial area..



      Below shot shows the Main line and siding in the foreground..  The NW-2 is sitting in an engine pocket track..  The tracks with the trains on them is a temporary freight yard for the outside operations..

      There is an incline track that allows trains to be run from the lower level to the upper level, so cars don't need to be picked up and moved.. 



      Below is a shot from one aisle showing the mainline on the left and the siding..  The GP-38 is sitting in another engine pocket track..   The right side shows the leads into the freight yard.



      The below picture shows the same location but from the aisle between the freight yard and the industrial area.



      I appreciate all the help in getting the pictures to show..   Thank you..

      Still can't get them to post myself, so I'll try it this way...  


      The above photo shows the west wall of the basement..  The track close to the aisle is the mainline, and the left track with the locomotive sitting it is basically the industrial area lead and the freight yard lead..

      For those not aware, the lower level tracks are the freight yard for the outside layout..
