"WOW" Caleb...............you knocked that right out of the park......fantastic !
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

In honor of the upcoming BLI PA2 availability, for comparison sake, here is the

It's a great time to be in N scale.  :-)

Caleb:

Very nice work, but please don't stand in tunnels to take photos of trains - we don't want you run over.   ;)

Worked a little more on the ten wheeler shell bash but nothing picture worthy. Hoping to score a mech for it this week.
I did build the benchwork for a small HCD home layout to experiment with trackwork and scenery techniques.

It's been awhile since my last Weekend Update contribution.  Other priorities have been severely cutting into my modeling time.  This week, I made some time, and spent an afternoon building these:



Right now, it's just the stock Superior Paper kit.  I haven't entirely finished with it yet, and it needs some painting.  Overall, I'm quite pleased with the way it came out.  Too bad I am a LONG way off from building its final home.

Finished the helix last night.  Need to make a few minor adjustments for clearances (who knew the safety valve on a Bachmann 2-8-0 was so tall?)  Back to the wood shop for some new spacers....

Well you do have a lot of raw materials!  Oh, and it will probably be 10 degrees warmer in there if we can ever figure out how to get the back window shut!

Care to elaborate on that awesomeness? I'd be really interested in transitioning the application over to N, as I am going for Z couplers on my lokies (at some point).
