Hate to derail the discussion about the mannequin  :trollface:, but that's a sweet-looking layout, Nate.  :)

Not to say the layout doesn't look fantastic (because it does), but do you realize how much more you could have done if it were around the walls and not an island? *ducks and hides*



Seriously though, great work!

                  :|   At the time my layout was installed in the new room that was added on to the house in 1997 I one had a layout in an adjoining room, formally a kids playroom , this N layout was dismantled. I two owned four N Trak Modules, and had drawn up plans for an around the wall layout modified from a plan in I believe the old Rail Model Journal. There are outlets around the walls, but none in the floor. I asked several members of the old Utah N Rail Modelers  (now Wasatch N Scale) group to come over one Saturday and help me put the modules together with track so I could have a roundy round in one corner of the room to run trains on while the around the wall layout was put together. I was told and they were probably right,"we know you, if you set those up in the corner that probably will be your layout" "Where is your nearest hardware store? Do you have a Makita saw?" A trip was made to purchase lumber and work started right away. The modules were incorporated into the layout, the good thing they were modules with the optional Green Line mountain track so the blue line was run around and climbed up to join green line creating a branch line, operated as a separate railroad, that served industries located along the two joined lines. Otherwise my railroad would have just been a round and round. How it now operates, with car cards, freight trains are made up in the main rail yard, and make a number of laps, either Eastbound or Westbound on the red or yellow lines, then they pick up cars from the branch at the interchange, and drop cars to go up the branch. Branch trains serve what ever industry like the cement/sand and gravel plant the cards say the cars go to. Cars going up can be considered either empty or loaded, they remain at the industries for at least one session before coming back down. Coal hoppers have loads that can be removed,they go up empty and come down loaded, ditto for the sand & gravel hoppers. Empty bulkhead flats go to the saw mill and return loaded, loaded log cars to to the mill and return empty. Three to four person comprise operating crews. A branchline operator, someone running the main yard putting trains together outbound side and breaking them down inbound side. They also add the locomotives to the roundy round trains . Then there is one operator to run the round and round train either E.Bound or W. bound to deliver cars after so many laps to the branch interchange, pick up cars , or drop them off  then go to the main yard for delivery. We assume that some cars travel beyond what is modeled. Sometimes there could be two mainline operators if I have enough people, then a passenger train might just be run round and round for appearance. The branch has it's own assigned locomotives, usually two units. Steam power is occasionally run on the mainline trains, but not on the branch., (My old timer steamer photo on the trestle lies).Trains are usually 20 cars ling with four to five of them headed for the branch. Not the layout I wanted, but very nice, however, no floor outlets so the power for the layout is a trip hazard cord in the isle.  Yes track was put down and trains were running on the main lines after three weekends and a couple of weeks of track laying by myself.

I heard @chicken45 modeled for @Ed Kapuscinski's mannequin. :ashat:

I am almost finished with my Tom Mannequin. Only think it's missing is his skin.
I have plans for dinner with it (liver, farva beans, chianti).

Every night, he plants a new tree.
But mention his law
and you've pulled your last straw!

Alternate version:

He asks excitedly "Did you say Ménage à Trois?"
No, I said "Ed's Law."

Having seen this pike in person, the two things that I love about it are the trestles and the and section about to enter the tunnel near the river crossing. Also, Nate's a collector, there's no room for a round the wall layout.

              :|I have just added lots (a S pot) of layout photographs. We get to see the bridges on the mainline in before and after shots, the mainline tunnel portals replaced with UP correct portals crafted by Bob robert3985. Some photos of trains on the layout, the unfinished but operational roundhouse and yard, a comparison with a RMC Magazine cover and a layout shot and several closing photos.

This is exactly where I knew we would go next. 


The next destination involves tentacles and @Ed Kapuscinski unable to sleep on his stomach.

Looks like the photo with the school bus got flipped left to right.  Door's on the wrong side.
Nitpicking aside, this shows a lot of great modeling.  Hope I can do somewhere near as well.

Photo is correct. The School Bus is a Japanese prototype - they drive on the left side of the road.  Friend of mine also has that bus on his layout.

BTW, Nate's Anime girls are quite realistic (and very nice).  :)

Cool!  It's been since 1963 that I came back from Korea.  Stopped in Japan going both directions, but never saw a school bus.  Didn't know they had some that looked so much like yours.
