Very nicely done, Dave....love the "tunnel" effect through the trees....and the foreground and background blending is really outstanding....

Dave-

The scenery is coming along nicely. The brooding sky and winter foliage give your layout a lot of character and bring cold days by the Bay immediately to mind.

Dave, we were in Cape Charles yesterday and took some pics. Among them is a huge gun off the USS Missouri that is sitting in the yard. Two came over on the rail barge, one will stay in a Nat. Wildlife Refuge near the cape, and the other went up to Delaware by rail. So, a huge gun on a flat car would still be prototypical in 2012!

Besides pictures, there are some neat videos in this link, including a hand-cranked swing bridge.

I don't want to jump in on Dave here but I don't know if he is still a member here or not. I know the layout was torn down and I think he moved. His great back drops will live on as I now have them on my layout.

Chip,

Thanks very much for your interest in my progress. As SteamNut noted, I have torn town the layout due to a move to Austin, Texas.

Although I regret not having finished the HO layout, I can say that I've started an N gauge shelf layout that will continue the DELMARVA peninsula theme. I've been lurking on Railroad Lines Forum and I hope to start posting sometime around the end of the year on the progress of this new effort.

Just some quick info on what I'm planning; N gauge, handlaid high detailed track (I've already built three turnouts with tie plates and detailing from Proto 87}, about 2' x 9', and with an eastern shore taste.

I expect my progress to be very slow due to the workload of my new job which is why I've "downsized" my layout in scale and complexity.

I miss the NJ model rrs and wondered if there is an Austin group.

Looking at the NMRA's model railroad club listings, I find Austin NTrak: http://www.austntrak.org/

It might also be worth asking around at the Austin Steam Train Assoc. http://www.austinsteamtrain.org/

I liked your HO effort, and look forward to seeing some postings about the N layout.

Dave, it's good to hear from you. I knew you had moved but didn't know where to. Sounds like you've settled in and are already well underway in your new project. I can't wait to see some pictures.

There's a great On30 module group in Austin, the "On30 Hill Country Outlaws". They have a Yahoo Group, On30HCOutlaws You should check them out.

Leave New Jersey? Someone was smart! Dave nice to see your going to build another layout. As you can see from my layout thread your back drops will live on.

I just returned from vacation in Cape Charles. The railroad is gone, but the historical society now owns the remaining locomotive and cars in addition to the passenger station.
