Not much accomplished this week. Wife's on bed rest for a viral ear infection - going on three weeks. Working 2 jobs - 70 hrs or more - Coaching son's baseball team - driving oldest daughter to work... I need some cheese for my wine ;D

Google Earth view of the peninsula.  For comparison, here's a view of the old one from a similar angle...

Lee,

Gosh, seeing those before and after shots is so eye-opening.  I vividly recall being heartbroken when Ohiopyle bit the dust, but seeing the new railroad in person and in photos online and in print has convinced me that every month of delay in getting the layout operational again was worth it.  Looking back, the old peninsula looks so small.  Big improvement.  Good job.

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!
