Tyson,
That is very impressive.
This is really going to look good once everything is completed.
Once again the mine looks like it really belongs where you have placed it.

Tyson, I like the way you were able to use the mine for double duty: it's an industry to switch but it's also a way to effectively hide the loop and give a plausible reason for the cars to "disappear." Nicely done!

Thanks guys! Mike hiding the loop was #1 from the start. I wanted it to look like a point to point "real" railroad . O.K. it's to small to look like a real R.R. , but if you squint real hard and have an extra brew and it's real late and you haven't slept in..........................

You continue to amaze me Tyson.

That is a pretty tight curve. Has it presented any operational problems for you?

Yeah Dave, 5.5" is really tight but the only problems so far is getting the buildings, trees etc. placed so they aren't "whacked" by the overhang on the inside of the curves or the car body ends on the outside of the curves.
