Thanks for the kind words, Wayne! I'm glad you enjoyed it and you're certainly welcome to visit again next time you're out this way.

I haven't had much time for modeling lately, but here are some pics from our open house last Saturday:














Enjoy!

First open house that I saw visitors welcome to climb on the scenery. Hope that they don't sit on the structures!

There is a walkway across the middle level of the layout. It's designed so it's not visible from the front. It also provides access into the tunnels -- wherever the path or stairs go over a tunnel, the steps lift out. Here's a shot taken two years ago that shows the path:

Good idea Ray, that walkway that cannot be seen from ground level. I now recognise the bridges & scenery as looking distinctly Tecate & Tijuana and S.D. & E.A. Rly. So where is the trolley line !?.

Here are a couple photos I shot today...


The desert is in bloom as an Alco RS-3n pulls a freight through Serenity Canyon:




In this staged publicity photo for the railroad, a passenger train pauses atop the Serenity Canyon viaduct, while a freight passes below. In the foreground, the "Tin Lizard" railbus rolls through a cut next to the abandoned Monolith Mine:




Enjoy!

Here's a couple more pics...



In this one, a passenger train goes through a rock cut before heading across the Serenity Canyon viaduct:





And in this shot, a boxcar long past its prime sits beside the Mineral Ridge Mill. I still need to build some stairs to the door of the mill:
