Yep. 
I'm still alive and Bountyland Railway has progressed a bit.

Much has changed at Bountyland Railway.

The old thread is still available for view if you'd like to know the history.

The Station is "bigger on the inside than it on the outside". 

The front/platform door will be a scale-like 4 feet tall but the station floor is 2 steps lower than the platform.

The side door is 64 inches tall and with a clear-story ceiling there is plenty of stand up room inside.

Thanks Doug.

I left because I was having a lot of trouble posting pictures.

Glad to see this is no longer a problem. 

I can post directly from my computer files if less than 500000 bytes which is a fairly large file.  :P

Uncle Bob

I've done a lot of work on the freight shed/shelter lately. 

It's almost ready for paint.

Will be same colors as the station.

This is an overview of the yard as it was last week. 

To the left is the shop which doubles as engine/car shed.

How Bountyland Railway pays its bills.
 
I built this 1/4th size Porter for a customer this year. 

At quarter size the gauge works out to be 30 inches. 

The No.7 is powered by four 6 Volt batteries tucked away in the tank and cab.

Has a great sound system!

The Porter and our No.11 both run on 7 1/2" gauge track, but are vastly different in size.

Here, however, the 11 is far enough back that this doesn't show so much.
