    The plastic inserts for the portholes are pretty thick, but a modicum of force should get them past the decoder. Or at least it did for me. They're a much bigger annoyance when trying to get the...

    I don't recall ever seeing much in the way of irrigation around Hope (be it lateral or center pivot). The main reason for adding it to my layout was to liven up what would otherwise be a pretty...

    Thanks, Allen. It actually is a kit (sort of) - the gantries are from Shapeways (Baldylox). However, he can't get the spans to print properly, so that's the part I had to invent myself.

    This week has mainly been about gluing together lots and lots of little pieces of styrene, whee! :)

    I can't imagine that any pictures he got standing that close turned out worth a damn. Unless of course there was some particular rivet that he really wanted to get a nice closeup shot of, lol.

    Thanks! I actually wanted 4014 to be a little closer (less sign, more 4014), but it was moving awfully fast and I didn't time it right. By the time I could take a second picture it had already roared...

    You and me both! It's quite the tangled up mess of metal, and having nothing but ground level photos isn't making things any easier. It looks like there are four distinct elevator legs inside there...

    Based on the freight trains that I've watched roll through town, I'd say somewhere around 40 MPH. It's not a slow crawl, that's for sure.

    I've never understood the rant about "my preorder didn't get made, so I'll never preorder again". If things get produced based on preorders, how does that help?
