      It’s worse than that... I’ve seen him wearing left-hand shoelaces in his right shoe!

      To Me, "Ken's Delores Yard" is what a narrow gauge yard should look like.  Nice results.

      but will Rooster be able to get his Superliner/Viewliner(whichever they are) cars in and out around those switches and curves?

      I had to explain that to club member when he tried to run his Mikado through the HO yard I built. I built it for Civil War era equipment, so his heavy Mike didn't like the one siding. Ats his problem.

      I took a bit of time to review your progress over the last few years.  What a truly remarkable railway you have constructed!  A lot of creativity in your solutions to building above ground with scenery.  The main line has really come together and has become a truly outstanding garden railway.

      Thanks, Jim. That is much appreciated!

      I've been to a few raised layouts and just took the parts that interested me and tried to tie them into a what I thought would work here. So far, so good.

      The locomotive servicing track has now officially been moved. 

      Here's the old spot. I moved Delores Freight to the spot the coaling used to occupy.

      I haven't decided on if or what building will go in it's old spot.

      The new service facility.

      Thanks, guys.

      Hopefully it will relieve some of the congestion in Delores Yard. If I can get some half decent weather I can try it out.

      I like this!  Looks like you've had weather good enough to get outside and snap a few pictures.

      Going for the record!  Its a shame he doesn't have the complete evolution here.  It could go all the way back to the first loop by the garage window and the railroad tie retaining wall.  Rooster can't touch this, he was a mere "yoke in a shell", when it started.

      Actually the "first loop" was in the driveway, while the retaining wall was being built. 

      That was probably around 1989 or so. 

      Visitors........the sawhorse was to keep people from parking there.................

      When the retaining wall was done, it moved from the driveway to behind the house.

      And the original Bachmann "Big Hauler" running around the layout.

      And eventually that retaining wall had to be replaced and the RR evolved again into this:

      Had some half decent weather so I took #345 out and gave it a go on the new track.

      Looks good to go............
