    Good advice. It certainly should. That's what's above the Slate Fork, and either a 4000k or 5000k above the workbench. I should double-check.

    You're right, it was all OE trackage at one time. The GN acquired the OE in 1908 and turned over control to the SP&S. It was part of J.J. Hill's plan to directly compete against Harriman's Southern...

    How about a topic on all the stuff we hoped to get done on our layouts during the week, but we never got around to doing?

    Best-sounding excuse, er, reason gets a prize. For example:

    Yep, nothing says, "Let the good times roll" like watching ballast dry. It's not for the faint of heart, that's for certain.:D

    No kidding! Hmmm, that's tempting. I really loved the Gazette, especially in the 1980s. The cover artwork was worth the price on its own.

    If I ever decide to model the modern era, it will be Florida East Coast. Great paint schemes, fast intermodal trains, interesting industries such as phosphate mines, cool scenery.

    Thanks, Allen. This gets me motivated to get Helicon on the new laptop. Had it on the old computer, but never used it. I know my pix here could benefit from better depth of field.

    Yes, but can you put it back together again, Tim?

    Thanks, Dave!

    I like it too. All that green can get overwhelming for my tastes. The layout has a "mood" that I like.

    I've been busy lately toning down the trees for more of a grayish-brown hue....
