Ed, I started with Conrail on the Curve, but then I saw the light.....or was it the Tuscan.  p.s.  I never realized how bright those trees were till I photographed them.

Hey, John, that looks great! Are those Susquehanna units I see on Track 3? That adds to the light you saw. (BTW, if you ever dull down the brightness of the trees, I'd be interested in how you do so. A thin wash? Dullcoat with a few drops of brown in it?)

But do you have an operating funicular? ;D
If it was the earlier days, you'd need the burned out caboose at the bottom of the hill...

There was a caboose placed down by the highway underpass that at one time was a hot dog stand... in fact it sat about where the current hot dog stand sits.  The vandals made short work of it.  This was in the very early 1980's.  My first trip up there was around 81, and I recall it being there.  My next trip was in 83, and it was less there...

Also with the Geep on display, there would have only been 3 tracks.
