      So Andy, do you have enough room for these 2 beauties or should I keep them?

       

      Hand them over, Jim...   Those baby's been away too long as it is....    

       

      Aaron, there's always new motive on the horizon....

      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

      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

      Gee Andy, how do you really feel?

       

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

      That is some impressive sky work!

      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.

      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..
