It has been quite some time since our last updatd but so everyone will know, Bountyland Railway is still running and running well. Additional construction progress has slowed (as have I) but this is still the best model railroad I've ever built. Certainly, the most FUN!!! :thumb:

Nice to hear from you again, Bob. I'm glad you're still having fun with your railroad.

I still go back from time to time to look at your large scale CSX railroad for inspiration. That is (was?) some amazing work.

Mike, Loganville still lives but my layout partner has been tied up with some extensive house remodeling.
We hope to get back "on track" with that project before too long. Maybe next winter. :)

Bob

Good to hear from you Bob, always enjoy your ideas and photos. My layout too has taken the backseat in the spring as I travel every weekend to go watch my son play college baseball...once the season is over I'll get back to building the last bridge across the creek and work on getting the loop closed up...can't wait.

So good to see your progress! Looks like your railroad is really coming along.

As for me, there has been little or no progress since this video recorded a year and a half ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZpFmuoTzr4
All resources have needed to go to other things.
The good news is that Bountyland Railway continues to run well and is without doubt the best model railroad I've ever built. Number 11 still runs well and is a real joy. I wasn't too sure if the bobber caboose would be reliable but I've had absolutely no problems with it.

Maybe 2017 will see more in the way of getting BLRY complete.
I hope so!

Bob, to continue, you will need to start a BOUNTYLAND RAILWAY - 'pt.II'
