Thanks Dave.
BLRY does not have a long run and what we now have has pretty well maxed out what we CAN have in our space. But maybe we'll someday add a pass track to the west side. This will allow making up a train, running a given number of laps, Then doing a run-around on that pass track before running laps "back home".

Meantime, what we do have is proving to be quite interesting. AND...a remember, a limited size layout is perfect for adding details; The baggage wagon is the first of such and I hope there will be many more. :)

After seeing our article at Discover Live Steam.... http://www.discoverlivesteam.com/magazine/A-e-magazine.htm
Tom Quinn decided to try ride inside for himself.

Here is the link to a series of videos showing what he built and how he built it.
https://www.youtube.com/user/tomq38?feature=em-share_video_user

I hope Tom's success will encourage others to give 7 1/2 (or 7 1/4) Ride-In a try.

And this one, with nephew Charley driving, shows something of #11's size.

Great pics! That first shot of the train coming across the trestle towards the camera is really beautiful!

Congrats on your article in Discover Live Steam!

In all modesty, I'll have to agree, Ray -- The bridge shot is one of my all-time favorites.

This layout features "reduced size replicas" rather than true models and has "reduced size, prototype operation" That is, rather than doing "pretend" operation, we do ACTUAL jobs but in a reduced size manor.

Case-in-point: The gondola easily hauls an actual quarter ton of ballast and the locomotive is used to move it to where it's needed.

And I love that we use real, full sized tools!

After more than five decades of model railroading, I'm finally exactly where I've always wanted to be.

Looks like you have a real railroad in your back yard.

Cheers Dan
