On Facebook a few weeks back someone got on and criticized this scene as unrealistic. Frank Bernard and others came back with the proto photos. Here George is presenting the evidence to the naysayers 'n' nitpickers.

I missed you to.  The posting problems have been a real pain - I hope you find a solution.  I haven't had any trouble as long as I use my MacBook Pro.  The iPad only has problems if I try to respond to someones post or edit one of mine.  So I have been sticking to the MacBook until Jimmy finds a solution.

Thanks kindly, John. It's just a matter of sitting down at the desktop, which is in the basement. I could resize/post lickety-split on my iPhone before the posting issues occurred. So, I promised George I'd post so I will. Just gonna take some time. Retirement is only 20 months away!!!!

Dave,

I have visited the F&SM twice in the days when cameras were not allowed.  On both occasions I was overwhelmed trying to see and remember all the great ideas I gleaned from my visit.  Even though the photos don't capture the overall impact of the layout in person, they offer the opportunity to study the incredible attention to detail that George has captured.  So, thank you again!

And looks like you had quite the helicopter ride around Franklin and South Manchester as part of your visit ;)     And very grateful for your perseverance in getting all of these posted !!!

Thank you again, for posting the pictures and persevering over the forum software issues. I never get tired of looking at George's wonderful "work of art"  layout.  Now that George says it's done, I wonder how long it will be before the expansion itch hits and he expands again. ;)
