Wow, John, cheez. Shades of John Allen. Looks great. Phenomenal.

Can't agree more.  Amazing stuff John.  I can't wait to see what you come up with as I am sure it will be spectacular.

Wow - thank you for the kind words. It was reading the book on John Allen's life that got me into the hobby so many years ago - so there has to be an influence.

Thank you, I never know how it is going to come out but I have a plan. There is a lot of work/ "fun" before we will see how it turns out. ;)

Update: Today, I spent some quality time running trains with the Grandkids. It was fun to watch my 18 month old Granddaughter get so excited about watching the trains.  Each of my Grandkids have a mountain named after them and always expect to see something new on their mountain when they visit.  Another fun way to share the hobby.

A little more progress on the Swakhammer build, today.  Added the crane and started building the platforms.

John,


Great looking structure, and the final detailing such as the crane is really making it special.

Thank you for the complements and for following along. As you well know, the layout becomes more alive with every one of these builds. I really enjoy the process of tying them all together to make a railroad.

 The S&S RR is really looking fantastic !
All your structures you built, the tracks you installed, the scenery to the ceiling , etc. is making this a thread not to miss to check on it's progress.

Thank you for the encouraging words and for following along. One of the great things about doing these threads is I can look back and see where I was at with the RR a year ago or even 5 our more years ago.  I know I'm making progress but sometimes you need to take a step back to recognize it.
