Great little videos, and some great looking equipment. Looking at that make one wanting to see more!

I waited to respond until I could view the pics and video on my laptop (as opposed to my phone where the video is hard to see), but looking good! Some of the subtle details are spot-on, like the rocks lining the walkways between the buildings.

Also, great to see on of Vern's Porters running in a southwestern landscape. Are the passenger cars Vern's as well?

Thank you.
Yes they are Vernes, I have several of his other pieces of rolling stock and locomotives, I also have almost every figure from his layout.

Work continued on the Micro layout today. I picked up a 6' folding and started to build a fiddle yard so I can take the layout to shows if need be. There is now enough storage for 5 small trains and 3 critters off the layout. The Layout will live on it's small base most of the time but it is fun to play.



I have a black table cloth on the way and want to wire LED lights at the track ends to see which sidings have power.

I enjoyed the videos, Larry. That layout should draw a lot of interest at any show you bring it to.

I also love this neat little layout. Fiddle yard adds a lot of operational potential. Good Job!!!

Youíve packed a lot of fine craftsmanship into a small area. Itís absolutely fascinating. Iím going to look at your videos again on our tv; as Duane pointed out above, watching on a phone does not make it.

The fiddle yard is a great addition.

Itís wonderful seeing a departed modelerís work live on especially Verne Niners trains.

I have spent a bunch of time getting ready to display this Micro layout. I have decided to use it to honor a bunch of my friends who are no longer here to see it.

I worked up this Chivers White Metal kit for the Geezer. It is one of three trains I will build for him. His Wife Anita sent me the decals after he passed and I have sent her pictures and video of the trains I am working on.

Nice looking Geezer loco there Larry. I like the color, and his Logo was a great looking logo.
