Re: Picnic Creek - An US N gauge train set

Very nice work, and the lighted cars are quite beauties. Certainly you have captured a bygone era of small town USA with the charming boulevard and cruising classic automobiles. Kansas enjoyed the glow of being a very pacific corn and wheat region, with little crime...until the Holcomb massacre. Tha...

Re: UK or Bust 2020

Yup, bewildered I am. In my younger days I've been around a few places, France, Spain, USSR, Finland, but always had a keen desire to return to the UK. I am beginning to think I may need to ratchet back and make two places to visit instead of four. I'd though Brighton might be interesting, until I s...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

love the shopping district. I wonder if a file to the guide rail might fixit. Nice old flanges seem a trifle heavy going Into it. Does it foul in the opposite direction, as well.

Stumbled over an old Pathe film regarding British Rail Tourism, dates to 1927.
Very historic. Very.

Re: UK or Bust 2020

As someone remarked, "spoilt for choice." Wonder if the company would mind me taking a year or two off. Does this make any sense? Day 1 London: wife wants to see the changing of the guards. Maybe I could squeeze in the London Transport Museum while they stand in the rain. Done plenty of ma...

Thank you for that- a sinewy twist from one line to another, flawlessly.
Sound effects most excellent, too.

Re: Layout number three

Looking good. I always marvel at the preponderance of point-to-points in
