I can see why this will be the signature scene.

BTW, is this standard gauge? For some reason it looks wider to me, like maybe 5' gauge. Maybe I've just been looking at too many narrow gauge layouts?

Yes, it is standard O gauge, which is 5 ft gauge.

That bridge scene is fantastic.

I was watching the video of a train crossing the bridge and noticed that the chuffing of the locomotive seems to not match the rotation of the wheels on the locomotive, maybe the audio is out of sync but when I watched the first part of the video again I counted that you are getting about 3 chuffs every two revolutions and you should be getting 4 chuffs per 1 revolution. if it was the audio of the video being off never mind.

The sound is out of synch because it is just voltage regulated. I did not add a cam. I could try to match the voltage to the sound better, but I haven't devoted the effort to it. That is on the do list.

I replaced the overexposed sky in photoshop on this image.

Mr. Kempinski,

I have been following your blog for sometime and always find it enlightening in terms of history, railroads as well as modeling. Thank you for sharing.

You may have already seen this, but I found this picture of Aquia Landing while browsing a website called Old Picture dot com. The link to the picture is below.

Recent progress on Stoneman's Station. This scene is not finished, but it is getting close.

Thanks for the note. That is a neat shot. The detail visible is incredible. Note the glossy finish on the box car. You can download a very high resolution copy of this photo for free at the Library of Congress website:

I thought that only Russia and Panama had 5' gauge?
Standard gauge is 4' 8 1/2" in most parts.
Unless the USMRR had it?

See Bernie's explanation about gauge on his Blog: http://usmrr.blogspot.com/2011/02/my-layout-philosophy-prototype-or.html

And a very nice scene it will be when finished.
