This is a work in progress, but it is getting there.  It is a combination of toy train and realism that reminds me of good modeling from the 1950s.  A weird vision but mine.  It contains 1/48th 3-rail as well as On30.  I try to keep everything to accurate scale, but am stuck with the 3-rail track.  But the narrow gauge is code 83.  Steam pulled streamliners on the upper loop goes through three rooms, shortline below, and then the 2 1/2 foot Maine inspired Micmac Lines interchange at the wharf.

POSTING PICTURES IS A NIGHTMARE!

Had to separate out photos although I kept to the instructions.

Ray, loved your poolroom turned barber shop.  Really enjoyed the entire layout.  You must live where the weather is kind?

Try this for your photos to resize   http://webresizer.com/   Do the size at 650 and the quality 95 This should resize your photos
 next down load them  then Additional options (On the left) + choose file then post  don't  preview  - normally this forum takes 2 photos then repeat if you want to put on more photos
Webresizer is free - some times its slow another time its rapid
This should put a stop to the nightmares of hell of sending photos to this forum

Great scene! I really like the water running down the street, and the traffic barricades.

Thanks! I'm in San Diego, so yes, the weather is about as good as you can get for an outdoor layout. I do need to spruce up some of the structures from time to time, especially the earlier ones that used different materials and techniques from what I'm currently using.
