Just beautiful, Frank. [:-thumbu] I like the way that you've positioned the boat on the beach.

Hi Frank. A small but wonderful addition to your stunning layout. Is a nice small diorama scene. As usual you've done a top notch job on the weathering.
I'm currently building an O scale fishing boat, so this is giving me plenty of ideas and inspiration.
Could you post a more distant shot of that area, to get an idea how it looks oveall.
Are you planning any further work on the layout,
or is the Centre keeping you too busy?

Regards Rob

Thanks Fred.

Russ, back in my early days I saw boats beached while fishing in the Bahamas. It reminds me of those days.

Thanks Rob, the Center keeps me pretty busy with Jimís relatively new O-Scale switching layout and Daveís U-Boat diorama. I just finished drawing the 2019 Christmas ornament giveaway to the first 50 people. Hereís a couple of pics. It sits proud on the beach because I ran out of room.

Nice ornament!! If I lived there I'd be first in line.

Phil thanks, that coming from a fellow mariner.

No Jerry, you and Dianeís spot is just fine. Now had the boat run aground by the lighthouse that would have been another story.

Hi Frank. Thanks for the 3 new photo's of the layout . Looks great.
Just curious. Do you ever operate, or actually run the trains on it ?

Rob, I'm embarrassed to say . . . not very often. And when I do it's not for very long. When I built it I wanted to have a switching layout at home to mess around with. While it was under construction I discovered I like building custom one of a kind structures more than operation. The more structures and the more scenery I added it became almost impossible to operate. So now itís basically a big diorama.

Honesty is the best policy. Nothing to be embarrassed about Frank. [:-thumbu]

Frank,

The more I study this large diorama, the more I find fascinating. I especially like the way you position all of your special outlying buildings. They all seem to fit precisely, pre-planned areas.
You have especially mastered your water too. Just great!

Frank,

Absolutely beautiful. The wreck is a tour de force of model building, a real enhancement to the scene.
