Thanks, Doc G, Si, Slateworks and Steven for the kind words!
I'm thinking of trying to pitch an article to a magazine on using a simple cell phone to get unique layout shots, as you can get a cell camera within millimeters of a subject and get shots you'd never get with a large-lens camera.

Thanks! The large industrial building and the farmhouse were scratchbuilt. The flag stop is a Grandt Line kit, and the gas station is a highly-modified Woodland Scenics Ethyl's Gas Station pre-built structure.The sleeping man is an Arttista O scale figure #1264. Ebay vendors have plenty of them. That's one of my favorite figures. He was originally sitting at the front of the gas station but I wanted him more out in the open.

Thanks Lee. I rather thought I recognised the Arttista style but wasn't sure.

Great use of the back lighting.
How do you get your cell to take such great photos???

It's a new phone (but a piece of junk in other ways as it routinely tries to re-format my SD card and I have to pop out the battery all the time as it won't re-charge otherwise), with a good camera.
Lighting helps, too. I mostly take the shots late in the day where I sometimes get sunlight coming through the window. Nothing beats natural light!

I just painted these two cows to look like the normal breeds in that area in this timeframe.

I noticed that my ET&WNC caboose from a kit is now featured on the kit mfg's website. Talk about validation!
I was happy to see that as I'm eternally grateful for them making a kit of a caboose that would have been a nightmare to scratch-build.

The weathering is nicely restrained on the caboose Lee, very realistic.
