Congratulations Troels,
I have started rereading the threads again. At the moment I'm at the build of the Seaview House hotel which is a favorite of mine among all
your great buildings. Just so beautiful.

Thanks for all the kind words!

It is this time of the year... tomorrow is three years to the day since I began setting up background masonite and benchwork in the train shed. In keeping with the tradition I post a couple of "then" shots, and the four corner views taken tonight.

Congratulations on constructing this work of ART.
From artistic concepts to reality.

I believe there is not one structure on this layout, that was a kit.
Each building was personally designed and constructed.That itself has to be a first.

Some designs have also been made available by third parties as kits

The last shot of the lighthouse is the winner for me. This well deserves at least another full volume of progress shots.

Can't wait for the video tour!

A true work of art from the master!

Troels, what a great way to start off a new volume in the Life of the Coast Line RR.

I like the before and after especially the after.
The wide angle shot is great.

I really glad I had the chance to visit you and your lovely wife and got to see the layout in person. Your camera takes beautiful picture but they don't really do it justice, it's so much better in person.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Those shots of the before and after are truly amazing, what an incredible change! And all that in just 3 years!! Thanks for posting the links to the previous volumes. Im going to figure out a way to create a file for the whole lot of them. Now off to read them again. JD.

Troels, I love the cantilevered benchwork! I used the same technique below my layout. Bravo!
