I added a Plexi piece at the edge of the turntable, to keep my locomotives from doing half-gainers to the floor. The Plexi was cut, drilled, and the mounts pre drilled and ready to go for quite a while. I just waited to mount them in place until after I took the other photos for my upcoming magazine article.

And today, I just scored this off eBay, a timetable from the RR I model in the same year. There are not many of these still around!

Also, the online Model Railroad Hobbyist magazine will be running one of my photos of the layout in an upcoming issue: http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/





MRH had asked for one of my photos of the layout, said they'd be running it, then didn't. I just found out when the segment the editor said it'd be running in didn't have it and I never heard from him after I sent him the large JPEG of the shot he wanted. They gave no reason or heads up that it wasn't going to be used.




Needless to say, I'm not happy about that.

At least the On30 Annual has committed to running my article and have it listed in promos...

Seems I spoke out of turn. I confirmed that it'll run next month after all.

I couldn't sleep, so I put down some static grass mats on the layout last night. They're pre-made by Heiki in Germany and look like real high grass with very easy application.

Very nice! Grass growing between the tracks is one of my favorite things. One of the scenic things I wanted most was to model a pokey old loco and train running through a "sea" of Texas Bluebonnets. Yes, there were such things, still are down in Central Texas, but I could never find anything that REALLY looked like the state flower. Maybe that's why I model rocks, dirt, and cactus...fear of flowers!
Again, very nice and it captures the look that I love also.

Those mats have come off really well Lee. I'm watching another example of the use of mats on NGRM Online and it's clear that they've improved considerably over the years.

P.S. I like the shadows in the photos. Gives a nice touch of realism.
