There are two photos there so far. Man, I'm still so pumped up!!! Even
though I love long trains and long mainlines, I'm hoping that by building
this diorama I can keep the momentum going and maybe someday this piece will
become part of a large layout. :-)

BTW, please try to relax! We don't want you to have a heart attack before you finish the diorama!

Isn't it amazing what one can do in a small space. I've been trying 2x4 tables in O gauge. Is that a challenge! Check out my web site for some photos (city scene & harbor scene modules).
Keep up the good work "crazyro" and keep us posting on your progress.

Bill, you're right, I certainly miss working on and running my layout!! Having the tuesday night crew over, to run with me, was the highlight of my week!! I was trying to build a small diorama, but, have since, been unable to do even that!! At least I still have the use of my eyes and can read magazines and use my computer. Just reached one of my short term goals, hit my birthday on the 8th of July!! Next, I'm aiming for my wife's birthday in November, that will be a tough one to make, but I'll keep on steamin away!!

As all of us get older, we need to take one day at a time, it seems.

You got that right... one of the joys of life is having friends, and one of the things that happens with friends is sometimes you have to say goodbye to them. I find each day I appreciate the people in my life more and more... family, friends, even co-workers :-) And also this electronic medium that has given me so many more friends... many of whom I'll never meet but I feel like I know them.

Mike,
Holy Shiitake mushrooms! (pardon my french.) That is one heck of a layout you are working on. Those photos do not do it justice. It appears that you are using Kato Unitrack. That must get pricey. I like to use atlas flextrack. I dont quite like fudging with the snap track because if the track shifts even slightly, then the joints could become kinked or something.
I too like LONG trains. I have decided that i will probably be modeling the ore train industry, during the steam era, possibly in the steam-diesel transition era. I'm focused in the santa fe area, though. That means no Big Boys for me :( However, i've obtained the lifelike 2882, and it runs like a champ. I'm converting it to DCC sometime before the MVNS (

) show in october, where i will be pulling a 45 car long ore train. Yes, thats right, i have 45 of those little ore cars. Perhaps i should switch over to MT trucks/couplers as the atlas ones are starting to get unreliable at such a heavy load with one loco. Hmm... Perhaps i'll be able to get another LL 2882 to start help pushing when i get up to about 75 or so cars :)
