Check out page 153 of the current copy of MRH.

 I really need to figure out what to do with that section of layout.

Hmmm .. change out the backdrop - lighten the ballast, and call it West Virginia  ;)

Wow, the color is totally messed up on those Kato P's. (page 153)

(maybe it's my monitor!)

No, I noticed the odd color on that P42 the other night too.

Read Marty's column...  It's almost like he's a member of the Railwire... ;D (which he is...) p. 143

I agree with most of Marty's comments - unfortunately, the one about spending too much time online I can't do ..

But his advice is sound .. I do something, anything each day on my layout .. it still looks like crap, but then again, I ain't a world class modeler .. but I have a hell of a lot of fun doing it .. :)

Yes, do something, ANYTHING every day.  The dull stuff like wiring is often made more tenable by breaking it up into 20 minute chunks.  Last night I was working on the switch throws in Thomas...  This after I unwisely let a train run unsupervised through a turnout I thought was spiked...  I sent a pair of F units down the sawmill siding and then tumbling over the precipice into the scenery cart.  Fortunately they landed softly on a bag of sculptamold...  Immediately the blue flags went up, and the track crew got to work to make all the turnouts functional.

And at least a railspike at the end of the spurs right?

No, something happened to the color in the photo. I have the originals on my disk and they don't look like that.
 
I just read Marty's column. Did an alien take over his body?  ;)
