Thanks everyone, I enjoyed your comments. I should say that after I decided on the name Hope I did a internet search and found that 47 states have a town by that name. The one that worked best is on Fox Island Off the coast from Tacoma Wash. It fit the area I am modeling but is entirely fictional.

Larry there is no Mayor because there is no local government, people just use common sense and respect one another. For the same reason there is no police dept. Again this is also entirely fictional.

Larryc I have been building models of one kind or another for 67 years now. It is just something I have always enjoyed. I do see lots of good ideas from some great modelers
on the forums and will try many of them in hopes of improving. I also hope I am able to inspire someone to try something new.

Again thank you all. Roland

Roland, your work is stunning. You have captured the essence of a small town and your modeling sets a high standard for us all.

WOW, I love the layout Roland. I haven't been very active on the forum for a couple of years(because I couldn't post and felt guilty about someone else posting for me). As luck would have it one of my best friends showed me how to post, and he ain't even a railroader. Now that I'm posting and checkin' out other peoples fine work, I decided to go back and check out all the shots of your layout, and quite a few shots of your project builds; you've got quite a few of those also. Anyways, I'm really impressed. Your attention to fine details is marvelous. Keep on strokin'...Kyle

It has been a while since I have been here. Got kink of burned out building the town during the lock down. I started on this a couple of weeks ago and am slowly getting back into modeling. It is a Tamiya bulldozer that I cut up and added an HO scale diesel engine. Still more to finish.

Nice solution. I have a couple of those and hate the stock hydraulics for the scraper.
