Hi Lee
I like model railways. Never had one. They always seem such a huge undertaking. There are some mind blowing layouts on YouTube. Is this 1/76 scale?

Nice photos Lee, the layout is looking good.
Seen videos of your US trains pulling a complete train of units like that, minus the truck.

Jim. This layout is 1/48 scale with a mix of 1/43-1/50 vehicles. Thanks for the complement and stopping by

John. This is what they call “Circus type” loading and unloading the would hire a truckers to unload and load these trains like this if the Railroad find have there own trucks.

Lee those flats look really good, well worn with countless trailers on them. Been admiring the track side ground work, very realistic you should be proud of the whole layout.

Any chance of a pic of the whole layout please.
