Thanks Ted, Pete, Bill & Alan!

Ted, I think I was just lucky this time.

Pete, sorry to read of your storm & hydro woes.
Glad you like the look of the concrete surface.

Bill, I'm afraid that I've never seen that particular movie classic yet.
So I will just have to take your word on it.

Alan, I can't wait to see all of the lights lit up on this one.

Hi everyone, I was thinking about my comment to Alan about being eager to see the pier with all of it's lights on.
Well I'm just home for lunch, and instead of eating, I had to go down stairs and pose a night photograph, of the R.A.SANTOS at the pier.
Just to give you a peek at how things are going to look on the Magoun pier at night.

Greg, it's a good thing I don't wear dentures or I would have broke them when my jaw dropped and they fell out!

Fantastic!

A feast for the eyes indeed!

Hope you got a granola bar or something to eat in the car on the way back to work!

Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone!
It's so great to now have a place to run trains.
I think I have test run every engine that I own now on Magoun pier.
Here is another night time photo of the ongoing operations at Magoun pier.
Looks like a new electrical transformer being delivered to the pier, I think they are going to need it.

Greg, That last photo is even better. Now the only thing I can think of to make it more realistic is
for you to get some rigging on the SANTOS. You are creating another Masterpiece.

Thanks! Mike, Ted & Bob.

Mike, yes those long holiday weekends come in handy sometimes.

Ted, glad your enjoying the pier, with or without your shades on.

Bob, I will get rigging for the SANTOS done sooner or later.

Greg, I know you are busy, the only reason I mentioned it was because your dioramas are getting
so real looking, Barnacle Bob has to pick a nit every once in a while. Back in the days we model,
not only ship's rigging, but overhead wires in general are usually dead giveaways being missing
from model photos and so prevalent in real life.

Just keep entertaining us with your wonderful modeling and leave Barnacle Bob to stew in his own brew.

Greg,

While I agree in principle with Bob, I will observe that around here right now, the absence of wires is common.

The power company crews are waiting for the tree crews to fight their way in to where the line crews can work. That storm was nasty.

So keep plugging! Sooner or later you'll have lines!
