Good to see an update Dave.

I'm very interested in seeing the background develop.

Dave, once upon a time I worked in a planetarium that had similar lighting around the lower circumference of the dome and it was very effective. If my layout were larger, that's something I'd definitely like to add. Can't wait to see pictures when you have it installed.

Thanks guys. I played hooky this afternoon, running a doubleheaded consist over the railroad (a first for the TMMC) and taking some photos and video. Enjoy!

This afternoon I started working on the On18 line again, laying some track between Horse Thief Canyon and the Big Thunder Mine area. I'm using Peco HOn30 track to represent the 18" gauge mining tram. Here's where it crosses above the TMMC mainline on Natural Arch Bridge.

That On18 is a cute little engine, Dave.

Dave: Just watched your video. All I can say is, it's amazing when talent and imagination together truly are greater than the sum of both. Even more so since you have it in spades in both those areas. Very inspiring and just plain fun!

Awesome Dave. Reminds me of the baby gauge RR that ran seven miles into Ryan in Death Valley.
