Thanks, Jerry. Frank and I were installing some of this today and expanding the scrapyard footprint a bit. It seems to be growing every week!

"We have one grandfather that brings his autistic grandson from Orlando which is about an hour and a half away."

3-4 days away if you take I-4 as I made the mistake of doing when I left down there.

Oh Mike, you funny guy. Sad but true, I-4 is one accident prone stretch of interstate.

Thanks Jim and Frank for the latest update.
Sure is a stunning scene with all those junk vehicles. And the ones up on bricks is very prototypical.
You blokes sure do nice rust and damage.

Frank, thanks for the info about the tyres. Will need to get some.

Looks like the crowd had a nice visit.



Regards Rob

Despite the cost of living, it's still popular.

Thanks Rob, I must admit I had two great teachers to learn weathering from. Dave Revelia and Brian Nolan, you canít go wrong watching and learning from their work.

Jim,

Please locate the sleeping 'Junk Yard Dog'. They always seem to 'pop up' at the least expectant times. Sometimes gnawing on an old shock absorber, just lurking in the shadows.  

Great work on this project!

Frank - It was great meeting you, talking with you and seeing this amazing layout in person. Your work is outstanding and I took a lot of references pictures of your work. Loved seeing the kids operating the layout and am looking forward to my next trip south!

The phone booth came to me via Bill Gill and Sgt. Bob. Sgt. Bob sent Bill several pay phones and Bill was generous enough to send one along to me. Which I am very thankful.

Unfortunately I decided to light it AFTER I made the booth and weathered it. It was when the LED was lit that I realized it showed through the white styrene. I then painted black on the inside and then white and then re-weathered it.

When you come to the scrap yard donít try to use our phone, bring your own change.

Frank, you and your crew are doing such a fantastic job with this switching layout!
That phone booth from Bob & Bill, is definitely a cool looking detail!
Love the sign about the dog & cat too!
