    I'm not a beer drinker by nature, but I still feel a bit like I've been cheated by not seeing a model of Yellowbeard brewery come into existence! I hope you'll pick up where you've left off.

    That engine looks like the offspring of an ALCo RS daddy and a Geep mommy.
    Good suggestion... I don't think I'd have a need for one though.

    I like The Baron's suggestions regarding curve radii; you give up some scenic context, but then maybe on a 4x8 you have room aplenty. You could, in fact, just enlarge this 3x5 plan by a factor of...

    If it were me, I think the approach I might try would be to cut out a thick styrene "screed" tool, basically a rectangle that has notches to fit around the railhead (and spikes), such that the bottom...

    I like your suggestions (as I tend to do). One thing I see that was bugging me up until just moments ago was that the yard's A/D lead (your red line just above "Small Town") seems oddly displaced by...

    I used to know a Wryte-Chrley... wonder if this is the same guy, or are they maybe related?

    If I am reading things right, the line that is tucked into the absolute top left corner is that actual outside-world connection. I think this should actually lead to a staging track or yard of some...
