    Outstanding. Any plans for a back drop to provide some depth to the scene? I could picture three 1/4" boards sandwiched together and use the top two boards to create skyscrapers in the background and leaves you some room to even drop in some LED's to complete the outline.

    I have watched your city grow over several years now Greg. You have been an inspiration to many urban modelers and I especially want to thank you for being among the few who spurred my interest in this niche of modeling.
    My only disappointment is that you never did really have to cut a hole in your ceiling to allow for even taller models. Long live Sterling!

    I wonder what you could have done if you had space.

    I was thinking that the Chicago Style L Structure didn't have a place in Sterling. But the latest additions, being of an older vintage, the hundred plus year old iron structures make sense. I know they've been a lot of work. But if you ever go with an expansion of the city and the elevated tracks. You might want to modify either Kato or Tomix Concrete Viaduct structures for the project. Chicago's Orange Line does this as duplicating the riveted ironwork of the several different lines/designs is cost prohibitive. I can't wait to see what you come up with for the cars. Will they be bowling alleys or side by sides?

    What really amazes me is not the structures, but that you have added living functional interiors to them.

    Simply amazing! Although I know it wasn't "simple" to do that terrific work. Really great Greg.

    incredible!

    Have you done any sort of animation on the lights? misc windows turning on and off, etc? I feel like that could bring it to life even more so than it already it.

    awesome work

    I'm new to the forum, but this type of thread is what inspires me to get involved in model railroading and hopefully build a layout of my own some day. Thanks.

    Ex-Ithacan...Greg is one of the greatest. He was my inspiration for getting interested in urban modeling. I was honored to have one of his buildings named after me.
