These French guys are doing a better job modeling the US than most of us do! The AMTRAK catenary was awesome.

How can you not like the black El Camino next to the tracks. Ah, the glory days of American auto manufacturing.....

Ed,
If it did, you'd never build the world ending Conrail layout that your new basement is crying out for.

I'd have to agree. I've seen quite a few French American layouts, including some that were FreeMo and I am quite impressed.

The only thing that irked me about these modules, and this is really reaching, was the roadway lines and how they did not flow properly...but thats because I'm a roadway nut as well  ;D

Thanks that was neat.  Can't read the language; but modeling like that is universal.

Wow!  I missed this the first time around.  Aside from the incredible attention to detail, I like how the track is laid out in this module: with the commercial buildings fronting the scene and the tracks behind, just like most people would experience it.
