Oh man I really love that shot looking down the street.  BZ.

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.
DCC is not plug-n-play.

I finally got around to building the tailings dump trestle for the Rattlesnake Mine.  Some additional debris and junk rounds out the scene.  The yellowish material is real Western mine/mill tailings.   You still to this day see the yellow piles scattered about on the mountainsides in the mining districts of Colorado.

Getting ready to write-up the Midland for N Scale Magazine.  These shots were just test shots with an iPhone and will not be sent in for publication.

May I recommend doing something to kill the shocking whiteness of those caboose end rails? They stick out like sore thumbs.

AND they're anachronistic.  I've already done two of my Midland cabooses in black...just need to do that third one.
